    I have a WAG54G V2 with the latest WAG54GV2-EU_AnnexA_ETSI_v1.00.19_001_code.bin firmware, I have moved to NZ and tried to load WAG54GV2-NZ_AnnexA_ETSI_v1.01.23_000_code.bin to overcome some issues (the EU version does not work well due to the lack of DSL modulation selection (G.dmt in NZ) does anybody know how to force the firmware upgade as the normal upgrade using the firmware upgrade in administration fails to load NZ version. I have tried a local supplied model with the NZ firmware and that works fine. :eek:

    Use TFTP !
    (Hope your Wag has more than 4MB of flash memory)

    Tried the TFTP utility in the download section, it failed with "Wrong code pattern" message, any more ideas....

    Probably the firmware is not for your Wag !
    Are you sure to have a Wag with 8 MB of flash memory ? only 4 in Europe !

    All V2's have 4mb Flash. Its the DRAM thats different, 32mb for Australia and less for the rest of the world =P

    Not sure why but it gives me bragging rights =P

    Ok then, explain me how to load the 4.2 MB of AU firmware instead of the 3.5 MB of UK one ?

    The AU version is over 4mb as well, and I was thinking the same thing.

    My guess is that it loads the binary file into RAM, then decompresses it onto the Flash, but uses squashfs or something =S

    I really don't know how they do it, but I guess they have to squish it all into 4mb somehow. I think it would have been a good idea to give it maybe 8mb of flash instead of 4mb =)

    OK then, I suggest you to load the AU firmware into your EU Wag and tell me what you see ! :grin:

    It wont work because the EU model has less RAM =P

    Same flash, different RAM. Posted by a Linksys rep on WP:

    *Linux based OS (the source code for this will be made available shortly on the Linksys GPL site)
    *ADSL2/2+ (the shipping firmware supports it already)
    *32Meg DRAM, 8 Meg Flash

    Sorry meant 8mb flash, and from what I understand the EU version has 16mb RAM =)
