I've recently started having a strange problem with my WRT54G. Internet access is via a Cable modem and has been working fine for months, and the cable modem works fine so I suspect the problem is with the router. However the router is also working, mostly, so I figured I'd see if anyone here has any suggestions. Here are the details of the problem:
So both the modem and the router seem to work except for the router's DHCP client. It works fine as a DHCP server for the LAN.
The firmware was already upgraded (and working), I've followed the standard power-cycle procedure, I've released and renewed the IP via the Status tab in the web interface, and I've tried resetting the router using both the button on the unit and via the web interface to revert to factory defaults.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If u have upgraded the firmware of the Rotuer and also reseted the Router.
So what u do is- Open the Setup page of the Rotuer http://192.168.1.1 and admin as the password.
Changed the Internet Connection type to DHCP and then changed the MTU to Manual and size to 1364 save settings.
Then checked the WAN IP if its 0.0.0.0 Click on the Setup tab and then click on sub tab Mac Address Clone-check the Enable box-then click on clone your PC's Mac-then Save settings-checked the WAN IP if 0.0.0.0==Powercycle the Network-Means Unplug the Power cable of the Router and the Modem and Plug it back in after 30 secs.
When you plug back make sure you plug the Modem first and then the Router.
Check whether u are able to online or not.
