WAG54G v.2 FTP Problem

    Guys, your help would be much appreciated. I'm a web developer and not being able to upload to FTP is driving my insane. I really don't want to have to go out and buy a new router.

    I can't upload to FTP, thats the problem. I can connect to the ftp server fine, and download fine, but its just uploading where the problem is. It may upload like 30% of the file, and then it will just freeze.

    I've tried knocking off the actual firewall in the router, and the problem has not gone away. I have tried using FTP from other computer's hooked up to the router, and still no luck.. leading me to believe that its the router that is causing the problems.

    So again, any help would be really greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.


    edit: I've noticed this thread http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/archive/index.php?t-34433.html and there doesn't seem to be a definitive answer.

    Go to the control panel ---> network connections ---> right click on the wireless network connections -> click properties
    ---> click tcp/ip -> click properties -> choose use the following ip add -> ip add: ; subnet mask: ;
    default gateway : -> click ok on all the windows
    You need also to get the DNS and assign it also.
    To get the DNS check the status of the network connection of the working computer. Click on Start ---> Run ---> Type: cmd ---> in the dos prompt type ipconfig /all - system will give the lan parametrs where you can easily find the dns setting

    Assign the DNS add on your laptop for 'preferred' and 'alternate' DNS server addresses.

    2) Try not to use WEP security and set up access only by authorized Mac addresses. It will be well Secured! Or simply use both of the features Wep + Mac Address Filter

    3) Put your router upside down or on the left or the right side of it. It will prevent the overheating issues on it. Or simply put the desktop's case fan right where you see the cooling holes on the router. If you want to put the fan on it, make sure you put it the right way, it must blow the air from the router not to the router!

    Hope this helps...

    Could be also the dhcp issues. The answer to the problem is fairly simple. Switch off the DHCP in the wirless box, and assign a static IP address to the PCs on the network you want to connect to it ( part 1 ).
    Disable the wirless zero config on your PC - this is done through the command prompt ( START-RUN-type: CMD ) then just in 'net stop "wireless zero configuration"
