    Hi all,

    I have a WAG54G V.2 running firmware Version: 1.02.20. Im far from a guru with these sort of things and was hoping someone may have the knowledge to fix my problem. Ok here goes

    I have a 1.5 mbit/s connection and seem to have an issue with speeds between my router and pc. For example - youtube etc , cannot stream the movies must always wait until almost complete. I also play online games eg Counter stike source - using the netgraph in the game i have a ping fluxuation of 10-20 as well as seem to get spikes of choke (or maybe loss cant remember) . But when it comes to downloading something from a link speed is maximum .

    My router is about 3m max from my pc and has a line of sight view.

    Going wired is not really an option , but it would be nice to be able to have a more consistent ping for gaming.

    Any help would be much appreciated , no one has been able to help me as yet :thumbdown:

    You should check that the Ethernet ports on your router are working - these devices have a history of failing due to capacitors, first effect is that Ethernet ports only work at 10Mbps. Note Linksys had a generous 3 year warranty... that they must now regret!

    I know the Ethernet ports died on mine a while ago now , didnt know about the 3 year warranty though might be worth hunting for a reciept.

    Im using wireless though not ethernet . Or can it have effects on it?
