I think that I must have gotten a lemon. My previous router was a linksys wrt54g rev.2 and it worked faithfully for the past 4 years. I replaced with the the WRT54GX2 after going through a couple of other routers (D-link 624 which dropped wireless connection repeatedly and a WRT54GS which spontaneously rebooted every day or so). I have noticed 3 problems with the GX2: 1. WAP encryption is broken - I can connect using any of my wireless computers using WEP or no encryption, but when WAP encryption is selected (AES or TSK) with a key selected which is 8 characters long, none of the wireless clients can connect using that particular password (no any other password) and the clients keep responding as though WEP encryption is being used (complaining about illegal password having to be 5 or 8 characters long). 2. Frequent lockups on the WAN side - this is happening numerous times daily: the connection to my cable modem locks up in spite of the fact that it still has a WAN IP. None of the clients can connect to the internet and the only way I can solve the problem is by releasing and renewing the WAN IP. 3. System Up Time and Current Time missing on the status page: neither of these times have been evident on that status page. I have searched the forums here and at dslreports but haven't seen any of these errors frequently cropping up with this router. I have used the January firmware as well as the latest beta firmware posted on this site but still the problem persists. I've tried resetting to factory settings hoping that would clear the problems but to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks!
