Linksys WAG54G router problem

Specs: Windows Vista
Hello, I have a Linksys WAG54G router which is getting pretty messed up.

My problem is that the ethernet light keeps switching off at random times and so I lose my connection to the internet.

I tried restarting ,resetting the router and it has done me no good, sometimes the ethernet light doesnt even turn on until i have restarted my router several times.

Sometimes it works with no problem but the next day it screws up again even though I didnt close it.

Is there a way to fix this? is this a router problem or a network card problem?

Thank you

Well if you've done the simple things like try a different cable and switching it to a different port, and the problem persists then it is likely to be the router. Since you have a router one presumes you have more than 1 PC hanging off it. Does it drop all connections simultaneously or only on one client?

Once they start this behavior it is doubtful they will recover and unless you have a degree in electronics, and a full schematic plus the tools to test & repair a circuitboard then I think you can forget about repairing it. It's not worth the price of a technician to get it looked at so buy a replacement.

No its only me using the router,The ethernet light turns off like once every 15 seconds and then it becomes stable, maybe its related to the weather?

because most of the time its screwed up at the morning when its really freezing .

Any ideas on what brand of router I should get? which isnt expensive and is reliable?

Why do you need a router for only one client system? Can't you connect directly from modem to PC?

What do you mean by "really freezing" ? Are you talking sub-zero temperatures? What is the operating temperature range specified for the unit you have? If you couple low temps with a bit of humidity you get condensation which may be collecting inside the unit. I would expect though that the unit itself should generate enough internal heat to counter that.

As to recommended brands, I have experience with only two. A Netgear which eventually developed symptoms similar to yours, and a D-Link which has worked flawlessly for a couple of years now.
