T1 issues with a Linksys router

By Teky ·
Does anyone know if a Linksys router (WRT54G) is able to work with a T1 line?
My current configuration is Internet-->Adtran CSU/DSU--> Linksys Router-->PC.

I am able to go out to the internet, but it seems that it's having problems maintaining a fast connection. I have used a K.G router, called ISP to see if they're having any problems, wiring, PC, etc.
I would not like to spend extra$$ on a cisco router if i can used a chipper router. Thanks!!

This is from linksys:

Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.

It seems like you might be investing in a cisco router.

get a 1700 Access router with the T1 port. Ebay has em for about $400.00 USD or less. Solve your problems right out.

if those dont work call your isp, and get a managed router. they do the work, monitor, update. you buy the switch and its basically plug and play from there. i recommend this for you, since you got a t1 line and considered a linksys.

I finally got the problem solve. After about a 1/2 dozen calls to my ISP and threats of getting another ISP, they finally went to check the connections at my site. It turns out that they have misconfigured something on their side. I asked them what had happened but they did not give me a concrete answer. Anyway, i now have the LAN running off of a Linksys router without a problem.
Well, i thought you might wanted to know about it... :)

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my question.
