I've been having problems with a Linksys WRT54GL router, with latest Linksys firmware. I've read a LOT of great reviews on this model but we are having instability problems with the network. Should I RMA this router and get it replaced? Anyone else with this type of problem?
We have many WRT54GLs running and we have had our share of lemons; sometimes occurring right out of the box and sometimes after a period of use. The problems seem to be consistent though: no internet access for wired clients and no DHCP for wireless. Also, no remote access. Usually the power LED on front of the router is rapidly flashing. Sometimes a restart will temporarily resolve the issue, sometimes not. Lately I have started just replacing with new ones.
For us, these issues occur regardless of whether or not DDWRT is installed. Usually I try to flash DDWRT before deploying the router, but sometimes I just dont have time. We have the same problem with both firmwares.
