WAG54G v1.2 -- Downgraded Firmware and ...

    now the router is acting funny. I read an advice somewhere that downgrading to 1.01.6 (from 1.02.9, fwiw) will solve all the wireless disconnection issues associated with the router. While the wireless now works flawlessly, I can rarely connect to the router control panel, and gateway pings are often unsuccessful--which means I can't even reach the cp long enough to be able to update the firmware; it will just end up ending the session. The modem isn't working well either--the internet works well during the first few minutes, then progressively slows down until it stops working.

    Pointers, pretty please? I just want to upgrade the firmware back to what it was.

    1.02.9 is not a good version !
    The best is 1.03.1 or 1.02.7 ...

    HiSpeed --

    1.02.9 isn't really the problem here so much as I can't get to the firmware upgrade page and have the router updated to *any* firmware release. . . you think the router is over in this case? Can I access the router drive/memory/whatever manually and have the firmware file replaced with anything higher than the one it has now?

    Did you try to upgrade with the Linksys TFTP after a hard reset ?

    Yeah, I tried that. It returned something to the extent of not having been able to maintain a connection with the gateway. Though I'm not sure what constitutes a "hard reset". A 10 second press would do, I suppose?

    20s could be better but I think you should force a 10 Mbps ethernet link to maintain the connection...
    May be the switch has a trouble...

    How do you force a 10 Mbps ethernet connection, HiSpeed?
