    Hello,

    I live in Holland and have a WAG54v2 device. In the setup it says I have 1.00.19 but it doesn't come up with the country code EU, AU, DE or whatever. How can I see which one I have?
    I saw that there is firmware 1.01.14 Dutch and other firmware for the AU. Also someone mentioned I could upgrade to the AU firmware. Is this true?

    Thanks in advance!

    Olaf

    nice one too!

    i don't understand why those urls are not available directly in the wag ?

    Either because Linksys has not enough programmers or the company structures are wrong (customer support for bug reporting and enhancement demands)...

    Thanks for the great links, it seems I have a EU modem. Is this different from the Dutch then? Why are there EU, but also German and Dutch versions of firmware?
    Are you guys sure I could use the UK versions?

    I think the difference between EU, UK, FR, SW, DE is only for the default parameters. For example, VPI, VCI, etc., are not the same in each country.

    As WAG54G-AU has 8MB flash memory, which is twice more than we have in Europe, don't use a AU firmware.

    With my WAG54G-FR I use UK or EU firmware without problem...

    yep as hispeed says, AU can't be used for ours EU devices. I got WagFR and use UK firmware without any prob too.

    GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZZZZZZIIIIIIEEEEEEEE
    TTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX :cheer:
    I need this feature, and with some calls to the tel hotline and some "chat" with the official support, they always says to me that was unavaible (i read in others forum that was possible but without the direct link the trick doesn't work)

    ps: the DE versions usually (with other brands, i dunno with the wag) have a bit different hw (different annex: adsl over isdn...)

    You remember me something I had at the beginning of this year :
    Before I succeed to do a WDS link between 2 WAG54G 1.2, the official Linksys support told me (confirmed by e-mail) that was impossible... :roll:

    ...sems to works like a charm :cheering:

    wds? if possible with the v1.2... perhaps is there a "magic" url to add it for a v2? :)
    and..... is there a chance to see "all the web pages" form "the rear" (like ftp), and see all the undocumented page?
    i'd like to lower the wifi power ... (it is in a bedroom)

    Got a message back from Linksys:
    So I think I wil upgrade to the UK firmware then. I will download the 1.00.19 version for backup first :D
    Will this firmware give me the WDS option?

    Does someone have the links for the EU 1.00.19 version and for the lates UK firmware as well. I can't find a way to the Linksys official FTP Site.
    Thanks!

    the 1.00.19 is useless... :rofl:

    :cry: It came by default on my WAG54GV2.... But I need as a backup it in case the UK firmware doesn't work. I have downloaded now WAG54GV2-EU_AnnexA_ETSI_1_00_19.zip. I have ADSL over an analogue line so Annexa should be OK, but I don't know what ETSI is.
    Does anybody know what the latest and stable UK firmware is, as everybody recommends it to me but I still have no clue what and where to download it.

    Thanks again! :rockon:

    1.01.01 or 1.01.05 or 1.01.15 are the onlyones to use !

    You can get them from this forum with a simple search...

    ETSI means European Telecommunications Standards Institute ! :D

    Onlyones ?

    There is new DE firmware version 1.01.27m.
     
  26. HiSpeed

    HiSpeed Network Guru Member

    Yep, but it's an AnnexB not an AnnexA !

    HiSpeed, in another topic Redflag wrote:
    That doesn't give me much confidence to install 1.01.15. Maybe the people here can help me now, since I am on this forum for a few days, frustrated by my WAG but I haven't read any concrete answer.
    Everybody should know how I feel I think, since most of you had/have the same problems. But I still haven't got any straight answer. I am not such a technical guy and know firmware is risky to install and so I wanted some answers and help. Asking for a simple link, is answered with "look on this forum". I did, but I can't find any. I have searched for 1.01.15, I have searched for firmware UK wag54g, but all I found was wag54g without specifying v2, so I don't know whether I can use that one.
    On the linksys site, I only find NON-UK firmware and a mix of WAG54G firmware with and without version 1 and 2 separated.
    So, please, could someone just give me 2 straight answers... PLEASE
    1- Can someone tell what is the most stable firmware to use with the WAG54G v2 EU? I now have 1.00.19 but everybody says this has the worst security.
    2- Can someone please provide me with an URL to download this firmware

    So, now back to my mom for some cyring :sadbye:

    Thanks in advance!

    The only risk you have to upgrade your firmware is...
    an explosion ! :grin:

    No, seriously I did it with all the versions of hardware and firmware without trouble.

    Unfortunately, all the Linksys firmwares are bad and the "game" is to find the least bad...

    I currently use the 1.01.15 but I suggest you to start with the 1.01.01...

    :drinking: OKay, that is question one. Could you also give an answer on question two :rofl:
    I found this site, but there it says BETA. Is it still beta?

    Thanks!
     
  30. HiSpeed

    HiSpeed Network Guru Member

    I have all these versions and I got them from here. :clap:

    Example : 1.01.05 (very quick search) :rofl:

    What I don't understand is why there are not in the dowload section ! :sadbye:
     
  31. Olafski

    Olafski Network Guru Member

    I forgot to mention the URL where I found them:
    http://xthost.info/wag/
    So like I said;
    I found this site, but there it says BETA. Is it still beta?

    I search on this site on 1.01.05 but it says 0 results. I used the Search of this forum and the Search on the left, in the menu.

    I also read in other topics to do a hard reset. Is that turning the thing of or the reset button on the back?

    Remember, beta or not the Linksys firmwares are bad ! :grin:
     
  33. Olafski

    Olafski Network Guru Member

    OK, I just upgraded to 1.01.01 not via TFTP but via the interface. I also says 1.01.01 on the right top. But do I need to do this hard reset? and if so, could you please explain how to do this?
     
  34. HiSpeed

    HiSpeed Network Guru Member

    Yes, it's better to do a hard reset with the button on the back (several seconds).
    Be patient, that's take a while..

    Hispeed, thanks for your help. I got it up and running in no-time. Also my wireless connection still worked fine.
    I only hoped that WDS was added in this firmware. I already posted a topic on using a WAP54G as a wireless repeater for my wag. I have several different stories. Linksys says I need WDS and so this won't work with the WAG, they say I can use v2 of the Range Expander, but I can't see why this should work, since my WAG then still has no WDS. I asked Linksys this, but no reply...
    Do you know whether this should work?
    According to this site it should work, here one comment on it:
    http://www.broadbandstuff.co.uk/pro...d=122&osCsid=24346036cc62152ef1be58559297a35a
    And this guys says 'enable WDS'....
