    I have read a lot of stuff from this forum but not found a clear answer for

    I have WRT54G-eu v2.2 (judging from serial) and have experienced disconnections from internet. My WAN connection is 10/10 Cisco LRE with Cisco 575 CPE in bridging mode. WRT54G doing PPPoE authentication and NAT/DHCP. I have recently experienced loss of PPPoE connection and I think it is connected to the situations where I'm downloading something large or streamed video down from the internet.

    I understand from the forum posts that beta firmware 4.00.7 could help, and would want to try it, but the question remains: is it safe to flash an EU mdel router with US firmware in this case? I have not seen any EU firmware around.

    Please comment, obviously don't want to brick the box, but I'd very much like to get rid of the PPPoE disconnecting thing.

    Adva-thanks-ance for any advice.

    Check out the front page. Looks like Linksys release a new firmware (3.03.9) for the EU. I'd download that and try it.

    If you use an US firmware version, all you are going to use ist the last 2 channels (12 and 13). So you will have only channel from 1 to 11.

    But use rather the 4.00.7 lowclock firmware (216 MHz)

    240 MHz is a bit too high overclocked.

    Did that, seems to work better. No more PPPoE disconnects. :)


    - WRT54G-EU v2.2
    - 3.03.1 had PPPoE disconnects under heavy load
    - 3.03.9 seems to have fixed that

    3.03.9 seems to work better with PPPoE (wired),but wireless clients still disconnects. I`m about to return my WRT54G v.2.2 router and give up Linksys products. Have tried almost all firmwares ,nothing has been stable after 1 month in use..
