    My WAG54G works pretty well most of the time, wireless side and DSL side, but even though I have selected 'block anonymous internet requests', it can still be pinged from the Internet, lowering my general security. Does anyone have a fix for this please ?

    Also, the 'Access restrictions page' seems not to work as it should - if you bar a PC using its MAC address, the filtering does not work. Likewise if you bar a PC using time limits.

    Using firmware 1.01.01

    After updating the firmware to 1.01.01 did you reset the router back to factory defaults and then re-enter your settings? If you didn't then that's probably why ;)

    (Belated) thanks very much for the tip. I will try it now I am back from holiday.

    Does it tell you to do this in the upgrade instructions ?
    If so, I must have missed it :eek:)

    I have just tried your suggestion, but I can still ping the router at it's external IP address.
