    Going to ebay this POS and get a real router...I purchased Linksys cause I assumed it would be backed by CISCO.

    This WAG54G should still be in beta testing. I cant believe it got released with such a large number of bugs.

    This is an example of firmware upgrades being a bad thing. Companies are releasing products they would never dream of releasing 5 years ago because they know they can perform a firmware upgrade and fix bugs.

    I have tried all of the firmware versions including the latest beta and it is still a POS. It does not even report wireless devices connected.

    Ebay to some poor other mug and get a netgear I guess.

    that would be the dumbest thing i have ever heard.
    get a netgear...
    only if you want to power it down every 1/2 day just so you can get connectivity.

    get some good firmware for your linksys and then try using it. i am not sure if sveasoft has firmware for it or not but it is worth a try.

    your first mistake is buying an ap only. for 20 bucks more you could have got a WRT54G and been much more happy.

    it gives you everything connected to it including mac address and ip lease time and all that jazz.
    it can even connect to another ap and be used like a wireless nic.

    greatest item ever

    maybe you should ebay the wap and get a wrt instead....

    The WAG54G that he is talking about is not an accesspoint. Its an international product. It combines the functions of a Wireless-G Router with an ADSL modem. More information can be found out about it - here

    Unfortunately, a number of people have had similar issues with this product and it may indeed be a better choice to trade it off for two separate pieces - router and modem.

    Also, unfortunatley, the source code for the WAG is not open, so there will be no third party development for it. We're kind of stuck with that Linksys provides. I would suggest, that you start a thread to compile all the known problems, and then we'll work to get a mass email going to Linksys where all the users involved each submit all these problems. Maybe mass numbers will get them looking into these problems.

    I'm sorry for your troubles.
