    I am using WAG54G as I mentioned;
    I have serious problems. I am a user from Turkiye.

    I know my cables are just fine! No problems with them.

    Let me write down my problems and wait answers from you;

    1. I am using the firmware 1.02.1. Which one is stable?
    I wonder if I can find the original one..

    2. If I only use the wireless there is no problem but when I connect
    a device with LAN ports the problem starts. I cant use 100mbps
    speed even when I connect the cable there is no light start to turn on
    on the front of the modem. When I reduce the speed to 10mbps it starts
    to work and the light goes on in front. What is the problem?

    3. After dropping the speed to 10mbps and start using both wireless and
    cable connection after a time passes and this is nearly 30minutes. The connection drops , the internet goes down and I cant connect to any site
    or the modem but there is no change about the lights in front they are all
    green. I cant get into internet again if I wont restart the modem.

    4. There wasnt anyproblems like these with the original firmware all of these
    started with the firmware upgrade. How can I find the original?

    5. If the updates going to make is worse why do they make new firmwares?

    Thanks for your interest and taking time.

    Hi Axi

    Not sure if you've managed to sort this but it sound very much like the problem i've had with two of my WAG54G v1.2 units. It's a known issue with this version and linksys will RMA the unit (if you have a purchase reciept still).

    The network ports fail internally and will only allow connection at 10MB Half-duplex.

    I've had 2 units replaced under RMA with the same issue, both v1.2 and both around the same age (2yrs or so). I think we also may have another unit, again v1.2 and 2-2.5yrs old with the same fault, but not 100% sure as i've not had chance to test/see it.

    If none of the network ports in the WAG will allow you to connect properly, try changing you PC NIC to negotiate to 10MB half duplex and see what happens. If this allows you to connect without dropping out, then the issue is as described above, Linksys should replace it (units have a 3yr warranty)

    Hello everyone...
    I'll be so glad if anyone tell me how to define my modem whether it's annex a or annex b... I guess I'm gonna be much more successful at choosing the correct firmware version if I know to define this annex thing..

    Best wishes from Turkiye... Looking forward to hear from any of you soon..:)

    Hi Guys,

    WAG54G 1.x has 2 main problems !

    1. If the switch fails to 10Mbps, you have only 2 choices, either RMA or replace capacitors (see my forum for details) !

    2. If the Internet connection is not stable, use firmware 1.03.1 which is the best with 1.02.7 (see my forum for download) !

    Hi thanks for the tip.

    - My internal connection is 100Mbts.
    - Internet connection 2Mbts stable.
    - One PC (connected by RJ45) and a notebook (wireless B or G)

    After upgrade firmware to 1.02.1 (today after dinner) from site linksys.com the problem presistes, keep losing internal connection, and some time rotate internal IP from to Some time internal connection holds for 4 hours.

    i have a notebook (wireless connected whith WPA pre-key and restricted to mac address, regroup after 3600 second) and something that hapens more than once is that when i turn off the notebook connection on PC goes down and up again, always. If Notebook is off the connection holds.

    My problem is in internal connection.

    Is there a know problem for wag54g working with RJ45 and wireless?

    The most strange thing is that after 1 year and half of hard work, 24hours 7 days on cable rj45, my wag54g start make this, and just after 3 month after turning on wireless for the notebook...

    "use firmware 1.03.1 (see my forum for download) !" Do you think it will help, my problem is not th conection to the internet, but the internal!!!

    Sorry my english, still learning...
