    In 1985, an indiscriminate amount of people banded together to boycott Coca-Cola changing the original flavor of coke to be "sweeter" in order to compete with Pepsi. All Coke did was turn coke into a "flat pepsi wannabe" that tasted as if it was left on the counter all night with the top off of the bottle. Due to these same folks leading protests about the change, within a year, they forced coke to re-instate the original formula, which is why we have the coca-cola we drink today (No bullshit). I'm sure some of you are old enough to remember this. If they can get a can coke reinstated, why can't we get some firmware that we need??!?!?

    This is a true story. See the attached link for details:


    It's the same game, generate public sentiment. If anyone reading this post has a WRV54G, or just wants to help be a general nuisance :) please cut and paste the following email addresses "as is" into a your email of choice and "put it on 'em!" We need to let them know "as many times as possible" how brassed off we are about the WRV54G "not" performing as advertised:

    support@linksys.com, tac@cisco.com,
    linksys@mailca.custhelp.com, firmware@linksys.com

    I'm keeping a running account of all the responses I get from the linksys helpdesk at the following thread:


    Feel free to get in on the action; more help is required to get the point across.

    Let's take a minute and "pause for the cause," y'all...

    It may work. I asked the same type of question to linksys about the WAG54G v1. its wireless performance was poor to say the least.

    problem was even though quite a few firmwares were released to solve the issue, linksys in their wisdom brought out the WAG54G v2 instead.

    best of luck with your crusade:)

    It's a longshot, but I've got too many direct factors in my possession that shows intentional negligence, if there is such thing in marketing and sales (copy of faulty 2.37 firmware to include a copy of 50 client user license quickvpn upgrade with faulty 2.37E firmware based on original faulty 2.37 firmware).

    Somebody owes us an explanation followed by firmware or just the firmware (the latter preferred :) )
