I'm wondering if _anyone_ can help... I've contacted linksys support, and got _nothing_ I have a WAG54G, and an 8 IP subnet from my ISP. I _know_ there is nothing wrong with the physical link back to the ISP, as I've had it running quite merrily before on both a Zoom X5 modem/router, and a D-Link D804GT. I bought the WAG54G on the advice of a 'friend', however I've had nothing but trouble since. For a start, the linksys won't let me assign the same IP to the internal network card as the PPP device gets allocated by the ISP (no biggy!). Then, I get _exactly_ 30 seconds of connected time before the WAG54G disconnects the DSL line. During those 30 seconds, all 8 IP's work fine. I know there is no issue with the ISP, as I can swap the linksys out, and presto, _any_ other router works. I've tried firmwares 1.7, 2.1 and 2.3, _all_ exhibit this behaviour. If I leave the router in nat'ed mode (ie it's on 192.168.1.1, it works fine, although that kind of defeats the point of having an 8 IP subnet...) I'm getting close to seeing what happens when the linksys is introduced to my blender... Cheers, Olly.
