    After nearly three years of trying to use this useless piece of shit I have finaly orderd a replacement a us robotics adsl 2+ maxg.

    Over the years I have had every problem mentioned on here and now the router has finally nearly died on its legs. It is without doubt the worst buy i have ever made.

    The filtering never worked.
    the wireless connection has never been reliable
    the ports now only run at 10mb (to those with port problems if you switch your pc ports to 10mb manually I think you will find they work.)
    the firewall causes cuts of the internet if you clear the firewall log you will find it comes back on ;-)

    My advice to anyone who has one is that they come with a 3 year warranty if you have the original receipt get a replacement now stating the problems above as a reason.

    Thanks to all here on the forums for there help and support in the past.

    I've got a ver. #1 (it rolled out with firmware 1.01.06) and I "never" had any of the problems everyone spoke of. To this day, it's still running (handling regular internet traffic to include 24/7 vpn tunnel connectivity).

    I guess I'm "the" lucky one :)

    You may find instructions on how to download it in this post:

    Or ask for it to the linksys uk support, maybe they have something newer than this. If this is the case let us know (I use 1.03.1 beta 1)

    As far as I know It is for Annex A only...

    Does anyone know how to add this file to the download section, cause this is a recurring question...

    Does the WDS feature work even if you can't enter the mac addresses in WDS menu?
