    after owning my wag54g v1.2 for afew months now after buying it second hand i have been through these forums to correct the other problem with this router, ie. 10mbps lan, unstable wlan.

    I now have a major problem in that the modem will work for about 36 hours then just die and not come back until i do a firmware reflash and start from a full reset, could this be firmware based or is it dead???

    firmaware version 1.02.7

    and how do i go about rma'ing the router if its dead???

    wag54g 1.2Version Modems chipset doesnt work properly and Linksys can change this series.

    I also have same problem. this serie is fully wrong.

    WAG 54G 1.2 works fine only at low temperature, with a fan on top for example.
    Without good cooling system, the components are destroyed with time and the life time can't exceed ~2 years...

    lol nice technical flaws then.

    guess i'd struggle to rma without proof of purchase?? or do linksys relace faulty routers anyway???

    Probably because it has not a simple board but a hamburger of cards...:rolleyes:

    Without proof of purchase that'll be hard... :argue:

    looks like a new router is needed then.

    there's about 5/6 boxes mentioned in that post lol

    also i want the range and stability of the wag's wireless as the netgear router i'm using now isn't as good on range and speeds. thinking of just using the wag as an access point now as it seems to share the net fine from another pc through wireless and lan, although i would prefer an all in 1

    No, the best choice is either the Linksys WRT 54GL or the Buffalo WHR-G54S...

    Depending on your need you can choose for example :
    Buffalo WHR-G54S + Linksys AM200
    or simply the new :
    Linksys WAG 200G

    after lots of testing and 6 different firmwares i now have the router working ok and stable :D

    after reading through nearly every post about this router i have made it stable and had no dropped connections in 4 days.

    using firmware version 1.02.7 with UPNP off and wireless settings are :-

    Beacon Interval = 50
    Fragment Threshold = 2304
    RTM Threshold = 2304

    :D
