    I've got a wag54 and wusb54 for 3 month.
    I've try a lot of firmware and a lot of setting, but I can't avoir wireless crash.

    It seem that crash mainly occurs when I make files transfert form a second pc connect by ethernet to the wag in the same time I made internet acces.
    It seem that the wag wireless task crash, and I got nore signal. But If I reset the wag or if I disable an enable wireless form my second pc

    I've got a lot of exchange with linksys support, but they don't give any usefull infomation

    I had a lot of file transfert crashes with the last firmwares.
    Now my Wag 1.2 is relatively stable with 1.01.7 with DHCP disabled and :
    Wireless / Basic Wireless Settings
    Wireless Channel : 11
    Wireless / Advanced Wireless Settings
    Control TX Rate : Auto
    Beacon Interval : 50
    DTIM Interval : 3
    Fragmentation Threshold : 2304
    RTS Threshold : 2347
    Authentication Type : Auto

    Most problems with the WAG are related to heat, the hotter the unit the more likely it is to fail, so try to keep it as cool as possible - a lot of people are using fans to keep the temperature down.

    Only use the 802.11b wireless standard.

    I also had a lot of WLAN disconnects. Setting the standard to 802.11b ONLY solved the problem for me and also gave me alot better signal strength. But still, it's only 11mbps standard instead of the 54mbps :(

    If you want to use the 802.11g standard, make sure that the signal strength of your computer is good, very good or excellent.
    When the signal strength is beneath the good, than the networkconnection will easily drop down.

    It has to be over 85% of Signal Strengh & Quality

    Since your'e on about link speed - I have a problem with a WAG and WPC both set to g only and 100% strength and quality - the laptop is 2 foot from the wag. Both running Win2K SP2

    However file transfers Wired to wireless run at g speed but the same file wireless to wired stick at b speed.

    Setting the wag to b mode is shown on the wpc as b mode but g only is reported on the wpc as mixed mode. Suggesting the wag does not switch to g mode only correctly.

    Does anybody have a good g speed both ways? if so what OS are you on?

    Linksys have basically washed their hands of this problem leaving me to return it as 'not fit for the purpose'. Ironically I quite like the WAG one box solution I just wish it worked as the blurb.

    The last suggestion from linksys was the 2304 rts/frag settings you have already mentioned. But been there done that all to no avail.

    As an aside with rts and frag at 2304 tthe beacon setting does not seem to matter much as to how my link performs!
