    hi to all, like reported in some old threads i have a big problem with the asdl2mue modem (connected to a wrt54gs.. but using the modem only with a pc ppoe connection i have the same prob)
    this is the story, with the hope someone can give me a suggestion to solve this problem (sorry for the bad english language)

    for 2 years i used without problem other brand modem+router, but a day the modem had broken and so i bought the first router (with modem) found in a store: it was a wag54gv2

    with that one (used around 5 months) i haven't any conn problem, but looking in this forum i see the better wrt54gs.. so.. i sold my wag54gv2 and bought an adsl2mue + wrt54gsv4 (now running with dd-wrt firm)

    and all was fine (3/4 months using a massive p2p too) until.. due some test in a friend's office that has an unsupported adsl2mue protocol (original firmware) , i have upgraded the firm with the new 4.19
    well, maybe was not a firm update related problem.. but after some days (i dunno if the disconnection was firm related) the connection began to drop every (around) 4 days, and at every disconnection the only thing possible was turn-off/on the adsl2mue and waiting for the reconnection (no chance using the reconnect "button" in dd-wrt or the connect/reconnect using the pc-pppoe)

    after some days the connection last only two days..

    so i tried the newest firm: the 4.22
    after that i had a disconnection every 20/30 minutes
    (and always the need to turn off the adsl2mue for reconnect, and without p2p client running)

    ok.. i decide to use a wag54gv2
    (many firends have bought that one due the good stability, and someone buy 2 units.. one for a backup)

    ok connected ... no prob at all for 2/3 weeks: no disconnection and p2p active without any prob

    5/6 days ago i returned to the old adsl2mue (but a new one, with the factory firm)+wrt54gs configuration... and AGAIN .. every 2 days the line drop and i must turn-off the adsl2mue to reconnect (same with a pc-pppoe connection), and WITHOUT any p2p clients
    sorry for the long post (and the bad english language: i hope that the situation is clear)

    in few words: i used an adsl2mue+wrt54 environment without problem times ago , but now doesn't works
    but i have no prob at all using another modem-router
    the modem is configured like a bridge only, and the router for a pppoe connection

    any user can give me a suggestion or trick?

    Hi R0ut3r,

    From what I see on my french forum, the WAG54G v2.0 seems more stable than the ADSL2MUE probably because it uses a better firmware on the same TI AR7 chip...

    For example, it is possible to choose the ADSL modulation on the WAG...

    ty, as usual hispeed :)
    so in other words: doesn't work? :eek: :eek:
    the strange thing is that for 3/4 months i have no prob at all
    hmmm arm7.. i give a look to the openw.. but seems to be too complex for a simply modem (no gui :( )
    one rma is already opened but i have the modem here, i'd liked to solve the problem here ....

    so: rma for two adsl2mue devices? :eek:

    Try changing your power supply brick, I think the supplied 1a one is right on the lower limit, either that or linksys have had a bad batch or power supplys. Mine just started to exhibit similar behaviour and had been fine for over a month. I've hooked mine up to my pc's 5v supply and it now seems to be ok.
