I have a WAG54G (v1.2) with firmware 1.01.9. Like many others I have had problems with intermittant internet access using the wireless connection, these were solved for me by assigning a static IP address. Whenever I had problems with the wireless connection I could always connect to the WAG54G via ethernet cable. Today I tried to add a Maxtor 300GB Shared Storage device to a ethernet port at the rear of the WAG54G but couldn't access the NAS drive. I figured there must be a software problem preventing me from seeing this on the network(any suggestions?) but as I went through my trouble shooting I found out I could not connect anything to the ethernet ports, no green lights showed up indicating activity. I tried using the command line IPCONFIG /ALL and the message was that the media was disconnected. I proved the NIC was working by using a cross-over cable between my two laptops and transferring files. I then rang Linksys Tech Support and couldn't get an answer I understood from them - they obviously had their trouble shooting check list and would'nt deviate from it. The one interesting thing they did was to get me to plug a normal (not cross-over) ethernet cable into ports 1 and 2 of the WAG54G and tell them what the lights did. the green LED came on steady for a few seconds and then flashed green continuously, but the tech could'nt tell me what this meant. They have issued me with a Return Merchandise Authorisation, which is nice since the WAG54G is 2 years old, but still I don't know what is wrong. I have tried two laptops into the WAG54G and both could not connect. Can anyone assist with trouble shooting the ethernet ports? Is there a way to test each port? Has anyone connected a NAS to the WAG54G and are there any tips or tricks or settings I should be aware of? In case it matters my main PC is a Dell Inspiron 5150, Wndows XP Pro Service Pack 2.
