    I have a brand new WAP54Gv3. Through the web-based utility I was able to set my static IP settings, but any time I try to change the SSID or security settings, they stick for a minute or two and then revert to the defaults. I make the changes, hit the save button, and it should work. Right? Is this just a piece of junk or am I missing something?

    Normally what you are doing works. Try changing the setting from a wired connection. If you are connected by a wireless connection, if you change the SS-ID or security setting you will lose the connction, but the setting is saved, So you have to change your SS-ID and security setting on the wireless NIC to match to re-establish the connection. If it does not worked from a wired connction, there may be a bug in the firmware or a problem with the access point. Firmware version 3.03 is the latest version. If it is still not working tey a livechat at the Linksys website, maybe there is a beta version of the firmware. Otherwise, if you can exchange the unit. Good luck.
