    Why is it that every time I Sync my Xbox360 with my laptop via Windows Media Player I lose access to my internet? I'm connected to the same internet connection on both the 360 and the laptop but the internet 'goes away' and I have to unplug my router when I'm done watching the movie for it to come back. Is this a problem in my settings or something? *-)

    Is the router on the latest firmware update?

    You can download the firmware in the downloads tab here, just make sure to choose the right hardware version.

    You can also greatly enhance the WRT54G with some great third party firmware (depending on the revision of the router, this is displayed underneath it)

    Tomao is a great firmware: Tomato Firmware | polarcloud.com
    DD-WRT is also a great alternative: www.dd-wrt.com | Unleash Your Router

    Both firmwares add a lot of new features and fix many of the bugs in the firmware developed by Linksys.
