    I would like to thank wlkn for the new release 1.3. I do have a problem with my connection. I don't know whether it's from my WAG200G Modem or from my ISP. The connection keeps drop from 8 Mb to 1 Mb some times and even less than that. It will start with 8 Mb however after downloading some files with IDM its drop down to few Kbs and many times to zero kbps and it keeps on that like for ever
    Then I will have to reset my modem and the speed will go up again but it will drop down after sometime again. So I keep hard resetting my modem through WebUI.
    The time I purchased the 8 Mb connection package, My ISP informed me that there will be fair use policy which means if I download too much, my connection will drop down automatically. Now I don't know if this is keeps happening because of my ISP or because of my modem but certainly if I reset my modem I am gaining full speed again specially if I change my ADSL Model from ADSL2+ to G.dmt and vice versa.
    Now I have upgraded my modem to Openwag200 firmware v1.3 and I can see the option of auto rebooting after certain hours and rebooting after failing in pinging an IP but I tried both and unfortunately it doesn't work with me.
    I would appreciate it if you could give me a solution or at least enlighten me on how to use the auto reboot after failing in pinging an IP or after certin period and can it ne for less than an hour?.

    Hi wlkn, Thamks for your reply. Actualy My Modem was working with the last official version from linksys and the problem was there too , this is why I shift to the custom firmware.
