    I have recently set-up a WAG54G-UK unit for my mum & dad, as I have one and I'm very pleased with it.

    Both units are identical V1.2 running the 1.02.7 firmware and both set-up with WPA encryption. However my mum & dad's unit takes over 2 minutes to get an IP address when connecting with there wireless laptop. Strange thing is that the laptop sees the WAG straight away and the signal strength is excellent!
    There main computer is connected via ethernet cable and gets assign an IP address instantly.

    I have taken there laptop home and tested it with my WAG and it had an IP address assigned as soon as it fired up!

    Is there anything that I can change on there unit to make a difference?

    If you are using the WAG to provide dhcp service - if yes try setting a static IP address this may help.

    I have a WAG V2 and laptop connection can take a few sec to not at all (I give up aftrer a minute or two - so it may connect if I gave it long enough).
    However I suspect this is a WPC issue as when I stop it and re-insert it it connects OK. You may be looking in the wrong place? are all device drivers up to date?

    When you say device drivers do you mean for the WPC or the WAG?

    And thanks for the reply :)

    I meant the driver for the WPC if that is what you use?
    You said you were happy with the WAG firmware version - so I would leave that alone unless you have a reason to look to upgrade this!
