    can someone tell me if it is possible to configure the WAG54G with the online config under the menu point

    -> Applications& Gaming ->Single Port Forwarding

    to tell every http-requests on port 80 to go to a special ip ?

    I´d like to redirect every httprequest to an apache webserver on the ip

    Realizing single port forwarding is what you want, you can still use port triggering to accomplish the same thing. I agree, you should be able to do single port forwarding, but if it isn't working, try the next option for the sake of saving frustration :) :)

    i think he wants a captive portal type thing, but i'm not sure, seemed that way from the explaintaion he gave on his last post.

    Port triggering is OK, but sometime, you'll have to make some "retries" to get the port (that the case with some P2P clients)

    I was told by Linksys support (UK):-

    - Port redirection, as implied in the user manual does not work on non V2 WAG54G's. Does work in latest V2 firmware.
    - Single port forwarding in conjunction with remote management can cause unreliability. A power cycle is/maybe required. How do I power cycle remotely ???????
    - Use port range forwarding "its more reliable".

    Great I thought, nice to tell me your latest V2 works, but not what I have. Anyway I have returned all 3 WAG54Gs I purchased, one 8 months old, as "not be being fit for purpose" (ie port redirection not working and not reliable) and I have received refunds with no questions asked on all three!!!!

    Bought 3 DS834Gs instead, what a difference, they just work. So annoyed I wasted so much time fiddling with WAG54G's to try and get them working reliably (ADSL leads, microfilters, settings, firmware revisions etc) and all along it was the WAG54G's just "being crap" was the problem.

    Did you RMA these back to Linksys or did you return to the original retailer? I tried my retailer but all they could recomend was contacting Linksys. Linksys were very helpful in getting the case logged and told me all I had to do now was email the RMA department to get things sorted. Nice suggestion except no reply to 4 emails so far in over a week :-(
