    Hello All,

    Too bad i didnt visit this forum before purchasing this model, but i cant say i have any problems.

    The single problem i have and wondering if anyone has experienced or has any suggestions for this is that randomly i will get the

    Code:
     page cannot be found
    error.

    This is in FF or IE.

    Wired doesnt seem to give me this error, but i cant confirm this yet.

    As i said its so random and really no reason that it should happen; i cant see a cause ..

    this is happening to all wireless laptops on my network (home network)..

    any ideas? thanks in advance..

    this cna be a number of things including your ISPs Proxy cache. try defining a Proxy cache (none of your ISPs) to see if that helps.

    the V5's are tbh pretty useless. by the amount of problems that users are facing.

    firstly update to the latest firmware. once updated, please try a hard reset, this will make your router default to original firmware settings but may fix some issues known to users than dont reset when they upgrade to new firmwares.

    as i look at teh firmware revisions 1.00.4 fixes an issue that you seem to be seeing.

    Firmware 1.00.6
    - Resolves issues with WAP54G repeater mode
    - Resolves issues with certain PPPoE connection
    - Resolves issues with SES turning back on when applying settings
    - Resolves issues with WPA allowing Shared key selection
    - Resolves issues with web GUI ping function
    - Resolves issues with using MSN whiteboard
    - Resolves issues with instability when using Bittorent
    - Resolves issues with using certain ATA phone adapters
    - Resolves issues with connecting to NNTP news servers

    Firmware 1.00.4
    - Resolves issues with slow downstream speeds
    - Resolves issues with certain web sites not loading or loading slowly
    - Resolves issues with obtaining an IP address from Windows 2000 Server
    - Resolves issues with certain Internet video streaming
    - Resolves issues with playing PSP games online

    click on the Linksys Downloads on the left Navigation block for the WRT54G v5 Firmware.

    If you could raise this issue with Linksys via the Live chat, it may get some feedback to the developers to fix this issue. either that or try and source a WRT54GS v1.x - v4.0

    i actually might just box this one up, go back to staples and get a v4 that i think was v4 cause it didnt have this silly 'speed-booster' advertisement..

    :grin:

    so that is what i did..

    unfortunately nothing less then a V5 available, but i did get a normal WRT54G V% .. minus the 'S'

    I will browse along and see if i run into the same problems..

    i do have another issue, but i will post that in another thread..

    thanks Toxic..
