    Hi all,

    I have a WAG54G annex A with the latest firmware
    Lately i am experiencing troubles.

    It seems a portscan is all it takes to crash the router.
    In other forums this behaviour is confirmed.
    It reboots - and frequently fails to bring up the WLAN...
    Sometimes it reboots 3 or 4 times...
    Most of the time i need to power down&up the darn thing to get it to work properly again.
    The router sometimes reports : "Ceiling for number of connections reached, dropping packet"
    and then crashes&reboots.
    Is anyone else experiencing this behaviour ?
    The worst part of it is.... the portscan also crashes the router if scanned from the outside !! Kind of DoS :))

    Had some reboot problems with my set as well. Don't know if a portscan was the cause of it, but I do know that a hard reset (press the reset button at the back of the set for more than 10 seconds) was the cure.
    Re-entered all the settings manually, and the set has been stable since.

    I am running firmware 1.02.3. Restoring the settings did not work. I had to re-enter all of it. Apparently my problem is in one of the settings that is included in the back-up I made.

    good luck!

    I have tried that... without any luck...
    If this behaviour persists i will ask for a replacement

    Thanks for the tip though !

    Best regards,

    1.02.3 cures rebooting

    according to Linksys, the latest beta 1.02.3 will stop the reboot issue. but you must do a full factory reset, and manually enter all settings, a restore will not resolve it
