I'm stumped! Looks like some similarities with some of the other threads, but thought I'd start over to keep things from getting to jumbled. Here's the story: WRV54G, firmware 2.03, installed ~8 months ago. Working fine all this time, other than too many restarts. It connects to a SonicWall SOHO3 on the other side of a VPN. A week ago the WRV54G stops serving up IP's (DHCP dead), No longer serves as a DNS proxy, and can not access the management interface via the browser (local or remote). Also, on the original box, when you set a static WAN IP it always returned to Dynamic (of course, you had to learn that before configuring VPN and losing the management interface) :twisted: . VPN also doesn't work. If I assign static IP's and DNS servers, can continue to access Internet. -Reset to factory defaults, no change. -Updated to 2.25.2, no change. -Replaced router with brand new one, running 2.10 firmware. Change: it keeps a static WAN IP, but seems to lose DHCP, DNS, and management immediately upon configuring and saving VPN info. -Reset to factory defaults and updated to 2.25.2. No change. -Reset to factory defaults. Did not configure VPN. Lost DHCP, DNS, management after about 2 hours. -Took a third WRV54G (also new, running 2.10) to another site, different everything - ISP, modem, PC's, patch cables. No change! -Still at test site, downgraded to firmware 2.03. Was able to get everything working. Shipped to site (4 hour drive). Everything worked... for about an hour! Then, same thing!!!! -Obtained dealer tech support # and pin (didn't bother mentioning conversations with wacky indians). They sent me a copy of 2.20 beta firmware, saying it's the most stable for VPN. Installed this over the phone with the secretary at the site. -Current status: 2.20 beta does not seem to accept a static IP, returning "0 or 255 invalid". As best I can over the phone, verified all settings at least 4 or 5 times. Emailed tech. Hoping for answer. Aargh!!! I've installed many products from Linksys, some of them over 100 times. This is a new low. Hope I don't have to learn another manufacturer's line, the Cisco thing ain't look'n good at this point! :roll: If anyone has any ideas, it'd be much appreciated!
