Spasmodic Router Failure

  Bloods Fan 02:58 25 Aug 2007


When connected to the internet via my wireless (LINKSYS WAG354G) router, it repeatedly loses two of the five green lights and disconnects from the server? It reconnects after 3 or 4 minutes but this situation appears to becoming more frequent. Any ideas as to the cause please?

Thank you

Hi Rapscallion, as you look from the front, it is the two on the left.

Will that be the internet and dsl marked lights or the power and wireless marked ones?

Internet and dsl?

If it is dropping between ISP and router, the problem is the router or the phone lines or the ISP. If it is dropping between modem and computer then it could be software, NIC, cable, or router's Ethernet port.
