    I have a WAP54G which I am using in the default AP mode. Alas, it goes offline and needs to be reset once or so a day. Surely the thing should run for longer!?!?!

    Firmware is v2.07. Would it be worth trying one of the custom firmwares? Or is this just a lemon?

    I used my WAP54V2 with firmware 2.08 on AP months at a time, are you using any filesharing software like Bit Torrent? If you are it may be cause of your problems. Try firmware version 2.08 or the firmware version 3.03 for the WAP54GV3. I do not know if ther is a EU version available.

    same prob.

    I've got a few of these, I put one out on the network and it started dropping out. I've moved it, changed the channel and updated the firm from 2.07 to 8.
    Using as AP only connecting to it to test with a linksys USB adapter. Settings are default, but I've changed things to test what might work.
    Been to a number of other sights and haven't found a solution.
    Is there a 3rd party firm that will help?

    Indeed, I am; Azureus and LimeWire.

    It is possible to apply v3 firmware to a v2 unit? Are the differences just in the firmware???

    I upgraded the unit to v2.08 and that seems to have fixed things.
