    Hello y'all,
    I have the Linksys WRT54G, vers.6 encoded with the most recent firmware update by Linksys. Since that update, I have had some inconsistency keeping online with my all the computers in my home network. Is this caused by my habit of having hardwired desktops (2 of them) on all the time while simultaneously using my WiFi connection for my laptop? Should one or more items be shut down? The update was originally made as a result of my rather weak WiFi connection (it didn't help that).
    Thank you.

    You should be able to freely use the wired and wireless connections on a wireless broadband router. If that causes problems, something is broken. :)

    With the firmware update, did you reset to factory defaults and reconfigure? If not, try that first.

    If you did reset to defaults and reconfigure, contact Linksys and find the download for the older firmware and see if that fixes the issue. Obviously, you should reset to defaults and reconfigure for any firmware change.

    Thanks for the advice. I contacted Linksys and found out that the tech who helped me before had not made all of the required adjustments necessary to make the system work under the new firmware. After getting the "rest of the updated adjustments," the system seems to be working fine. Thanks again for your always great help.
