geramy is right.... WGR614v7

geramy is right.... WGR614v7 uses an atheros based wi-fi chipset and WGR614v8 uses a broadcom based wi-fi chipset ...so you need different BSPs and hence different
firmware for the two routers ... U can't upgrade the firmware for one router to work on a different router bcoz chipsets are different and need different BSPs...

my connection to the internet

my connection to the internet via the router keeps going on and off all the time. When i do connect directly via the broadband modem the reception is fast and great. I have gone thru all the troubleshooting aspects present in the troubling section but to no avail. What else do i need to do. When i connect to other unsecured network it works just fine.

your problem is quite simple

your problem is quite simple here it is the router cant detect its info like ip and dns very well so you want to get those off the router or via ISP support this router can be used better in telnet
