Cannot connect inbound from internet

    Hi, I have just obtained a 2nd hand Linksys WAG54G Wireless router.

    I got this device to replace my Billion router which has problems maintaining its wireless service (kept having to physically reboot the device when connection was "frequently" dropped).

    With the WAG54G I have, more-or-less, constant wireless access from my laptop whenever I request it. There are some drop-outs but reconnection is pretty much automatic and instantaneous.

    However there are bigger problems insofar as the device keeps dropping connection to the internet. I then need to initiate a session from an internal PC to re-establish the connection.

    The biggest problem to this is that I run a Web and SMTP server inside the LAN and when the connection is dropped, these are no longer available.

    So right now I'm away from home and attempting to connect but will not be able to do so until a family member uses the home pc to connect outbound which wakes up the device.

    I've got the keep alive set up for 1440 minutes (24hrs) but it doesn't make a difference, I did have it set to never disconnect and that didn't help either.

    I can't tell you the firmware version because the machine is currenly dead..... :frown:

    Hi All

    The firmware of the WAG54G is 1.02.7, Oct 19 2004.

    If I look on the Linksys site http://www-uk.linksys.com/servlet/S...nksys/Common/VisitorWrapper&lid=1450758422H16

    In the Technical Support section --> Downloads for your product

    I can select the following product versions

    WAG54G v1.0 -- Wireless-G ADSL Gateway
    The latest firmware for this product is 1.02.1 18/05/2004 for both Annex A & B and is 877Kb

    WAG54G v1.2 -- Wireless-G ADSL Gateway
    The latest firmware for this product is 1.02.1 18/05/2004 for both Annex A & B and is 877Kb

    WAG54G v2.0 -- Wireless-G ADSL Gateway (Annex A)
    The latest firmware for this product is:
    1.01.15 18/09/2005 for Annex A and is 3.26Mb
    1.01.17 18/09/2005 for Annex B and is 3.18Mb

    WAG54G v3.0 -- Wireless-G ADSL Gateway
    This product looks nothing like the router I am using. Furthermore there is no firmware available anyway.

    So the real question is : Where does my Firmware release come from and should I be using it, or should I be using one of these other ones instead?

    Thanks

    Mike
