    I would like to use SNMP on my WAG54G V2 (European, 1.01.01 Firmware). However so far I failed in all my attempts. I downloaded PRTG Traffic Shaper and tried to set up an ''sensor'' but that failed using the error : ''(Not Connected, Socket error 10054).''

    I used the following settings :

    Device Name : WAG54G V.2
    IpAdress : (address of my WAG54G V2)
    SNMP Community String : public
    Port : 161

    I have enabled SNMP on the device however it doesn't seem to work. Can some-one give me a helping hand? Perhaps some-one could post her/his working configuration.

    Thanks in advance.

    Works fine for me, PRTG connects and collects stats.

    On the applications and gaming tab of the WAG admin screen have you enabled port 161 with your PCs IP address?

    Works fine for me too! As Wild-Weasel suggests, the IP address (or it can be a range too, which is what I use) refers to the address of the PC where you are running PRTG, not the address of the WAG!

    A minor correction, tho', W_W! I think the page you meant is Administration page, Management Tab, SNMP section? At least,that's where it is on my screen (v1.01.00)

    No, I didn't do that. However doing it dind't work either. Port forwarding is a litle bit flaky since I upgraded to 1.01.1 (e.g Shareaza says that TCP is forwarded but UDP is not while I have two seperate identical entry's for TCP and UDP). I'll play a litle bit more with it and perhaps fire up ethereal so see if I get any SNMP packets at all.

    You mean that I have to enter the Ip address of my PC in the PRTG screen? Wouldn't that mean that I would collect the data broad casted by my own PC which would result in no-dating considering that I'm not running an SNMTP daemon here?

    edit : Problem might be that I din't enter all setting by hand after the firmware upgrade but imported my old backup of the settings. I'll try another hard reset and manual entering the settings tonight (to minimize down-time). Hope that solves the port forwarding problems.
