    Hello everyone,

    I have a Linksys WRT54G with the latest firmware that works perfectly fine most of the time, but every now and then will not share incoming internet. It has an IP from the ISP and has correct DNS servers and I'm able to ping the ISP's gateway and DNS servers successfully, but I'm not able to access any web sites or connect outside at all. I try restarting the modem and the router, but that doesn't work either. Usually I restart to factory defaults and it works.

    What is the best way to fix this problem?

    Thanks!

    I had that problem (except with a WRT54GS) What I did was reset it to factory defaults. Then I rolled back to firmware version 1.0. Finally, I reinstalled the latest firmware and now it works flawlessly. Hope this helps!

    I would think a replacement router would be the fix here.
