I have recently acquired a WRTP54G Linksys Router that I would like to use. Yes, I know it is obsolete, and no, I do not intend to use it as my primary router. I have connected the router to my current main router.
The Linksys router has been assigned the local IP address of
192.168.1.114, and I am trying to connect to it in my web browser to configure it via the web interface. The problem that I am having, as shown by pinging the IP address, is that the web interface is only accessible for several seconds after the router is reset. After that, the web interface becomes inaccessible, I am unable to access it again without resetting the router again. Even a power cycle does not make it available for several seconds.
What exactly is the matter with it, and how can I fix it?
