    Access point keeps going offline

    I've got two linksys Wireless G routers networked.
    The first, a WRT54GS is hooked up to my Toshiba cable modem.
    The second, a WRT54G I assigned as an access point. It is wired to
    the network and connected to a PS3 at the other end of house.
    All works well generally. But about once a day, the access point goes
    offline and I have to unplug it and wait a few seconds and replug it
    to bring it online.
    Can anyone think offhand of why it is doing this.
    Thanks in advance.

    It is starting to die. You could try to upgrade the firmware but usually
    means it is time to replace. No setting to fix it.

    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Really? it is only two months old and has been doing this since I
    bought it. I thought I might have something set wrong.
    Thanks for the answer.

    You probably got a lemon. All inexpensive routers freeze up sometimes but
    this is way too often and soon. Hopefully the store you got it will replace
    it for you. Otherwise call or email Linksys for an RMA replacement.

    Thanks,
    Bruce
