    My newly installed WAG354G gateway is now running for 2 weeks.
    Configuration of the net work.
    2pc running XP connection wireless.
    2pc running linux connection via ethernet.

    On one of the linux machine I'm running my own webserver, so I gave that machine a fixed IP adress. I have forwarded port 80(http) and port 21(ftp) to this machine. This works fine, but once or twice a day my webserver is not reacheable anymore from the outside and customers are getting a timeout on there connection. All other funtions of the router are working ok. I can get to my server locally and internet connections from inside to the outside world are working ok.

    The only way to restore the connection is by booting the router. What can be the problem. I'm sure it is an issue of this router, because I'm doing this for more than a year with a very cheap sweex router and never had this problem.

    ps: I have updated the firmware to version 1.01.05

    is there QoS on the WAG354G ? perhaps prioritising the 80 and 21 may help. whats your current bandwidth uplink and downlink?

    yes, I have the possibility to set QoS, so I will experiment with those settings.
    I'm not really sure this will help. What is prot Triggering doing. Can this help??
    Current my bandwidth are 3078/517 Kbps

    AS advised I prioritised port 80 and 21, but today I had again no connection. thus this won't help. Is there anyone who has another solution??

    if the problem lies with external clients accessing your webserver (by a DDNS service?) then prehaps it is that DDNS servce that is the problem, if you cna access locally to the webserver at anytime.

    I don't think it is a problem with Dynamic dnns. At first I have a static ip address and I'm using the service of DynDNS to couple my IP adress to the webserver' s domain and that worked correct for the last year. Even when my webserver isn't reachable I can ping it using the doaminname and if I do a nslookup, I get the coorrect IP address. Also if my webserver isn't reachable from outside, I can connect to the webserver of the router. So in my opinon the connection is correct, but stops behind the router and that should be a portforwarding thing.

    Last week I contacted Linksys support and after some email discussion they advised me to return the router. SAo I did and the new one is running fine till now. Thanks for your help
