    Hello, i bought a Linksys WRT54G router, (Firmware Version: v1.00.0 ) when i installed it i had problems with my pppoe internet connection (Works for about 30seg, and then the connecition to internet die), so i read in linksys.com about the power cycle step, i did it and and now the connection work ok, but i notice an important latency time compared to my old router a D-Link 524.

    I tested the router with 3 computers, one via utp, and 2 notebook´s wifi and the latency is the same, i tryed disabling all the security and the problem continue....

    I want to know if the firmware upgrade optimize/resolve this problem, or there something that i can do....

    Even with the latest firmware upgrade, this router is still a HUGE disappointment. It is true that it runs much faster with the point 4 upgrade but the router still hangs up every few days and requires me to unplug it and replug it in again to bring it back to life. A wireless router should be like a dialtone, it should not require constant babysitting. When you consider that this device is more expensive than products like NetGear the issue is even more amazing. I was thinking that Cisco was a good company and a name I could trust but I am really doubting that now.

    Anybody else still having this issue? If so, any suggestions other than tossing out the router to resolve this issue?

    I have a 256Kbits ADSL connection, so the bandwith reducement is not a problem at all to me, but the latency time yes it is, is there any setting to reduce it, because if i upgrade the firmaware i believe that i couln't going to return the router.
