Linksys WRT54GV7 loses connection to internet

  1. Hi all,
    I've had a working WRT54gV7 for some time, but in the last couple of weeks, something has changed, and now each morning when I boot up the computer, there is no connection to the internet. As a result, I need to restart the router, which usually fixes the problem.
    No sure what's going on, as nothing has really changed, although I did set up port forwarding for uTorrent.
    I'm using the lastest version (I think. It's 7.00.4).
    This is just annoying - any ideas would be gratefully received.

    You could try a hard reset of your Linksys WRT54GV7 router (usually by holding in the reset button with a pin for 30 secs.

    You will lose all your settings, and will need to set it back up again
    But in your case I believe it is worth it. It could also be faulty hardware

    Thanks - nothing to lose I guess.
    Will update once I get a chance to try.

    And check the linksys site (under Support) to see if there are any firmware updates for the router
