    Hey, the newest is 1.00.12.
    But probably first you have to upgrade to 1.00.9C

    annex a -> download -> wag54gs 1.0 (the same firmware)

    Not Sure

    I upgraded from 1.00.2 to 1.0.12 without a problem. I can say that it seems to have made a definate difference with regards to improving dsl dropouts, configuration, and reliability (anecdotal).

    Yeah I just found this link in the uk site and I just sent an email to their support team asking if this is compatible with WAG54GS v1.1 (In their list I found only WAG54GS v1.0 model)

    I can see your question was not answered originally.

    As far as I know the WAG54GS has only one firmware nomenclature Annex A.

    My Gateway was manufactured in October 2005. As far as I know that makes it a WAG54GS - Wireless-G ADSL Gateway with SpeedBooster.

    I know nothing of a WAG54GS v1 or v1.1 and there is nothing on my unit that says one or the other. If you have a reference can you post it please?

    I have downloaded from
    from the EU folder, that is for annex A, the
    and it was only with that utility, that i was able to pass from 1.00.06 to 1.00.08A ...
    I have given my computer a static ip ( and then i hard reseted the router in the small button in the back for about 10-20 secs.
    After finishing the hard reset, i just ran the utility and puff magic :) just wait until it reboots again and all red light blinking disappear and when it looks normal IT IS DONE! you have just upgrade to 1.00.08A...
    wan't even better news!???afterwards i upgraded to 1.00.12 from the inside of internet explorer and using only the router gui interface!!!!!amazing what a litle firmware can do!Sorry for my english but i'm from Portugal!!! lol

    Port problem after update

    Hi I have just updated my WAG54GS ver1.1 with 1.00.12 firmware but now I can no longer save any port forward options. I set up the IP, port and then select the tick box but after saving the pages just show the old settings and the box unticked again. All the port option I setup in 1.00.8 are all there and ticked it just I can add any more.

    Anyone else had this kind of problem.

    There is a general problem with the WAG54GS with firmware upgrading.

    You must update the firmware one step at a time using the firmware update page on the router

    Before updating, hard reset your router (put a pin in the back for 10 sec)

    Follow the list below which has been proven to work, starting from whichever version you currently have. DO NOT miss out any versions or you may run into problems. Remember to hard reset first and reboot between versions to ensure it goes without a hitch.

    • Hard Reset the router
    • Upgrade to 1.00.02
    • Reboot the router
    • Upgrade to 1.00.06
    • Reboot the router
    • Upgrade to 1.00.08
    • Reboot the router
    • Upgrade to 1.00.12
    • Reboot the router
    • Upgrade to 1.01.00
    • Reboot the router
    • Upgrade to 1.01.01

    To find the firmware files either email linksys or google them.
