    Hi all you clever people,
    Apologies for this, but I am just bought a second hand WAG54G from ebay, and on the whole it works just fine, but it keeps dropping me, so I thought I would ensure that the firmware was the most upto date version.
    I also note from reading some of the other posts on this forum that there are several versions of WAG54G available.
    So the question is:
    How do i find out which version of the wag54g that i have, and what is the most upto date firmware available. From the admin pages, the firmware is currently v1.02.7
    Any help or tips most welcome.
    Many thanks.

    serial CF60xxxxxxxx -> version 1.0 more recent firmware 1.03.1
    serial CF61xxxxxxxx -> version 1.2 more recent firmware 1.03.1
    serial CF62xxxxxxxx -> version 2.0 more recent firmware 1.01.22

    note your 1.02.7 is not too bad because the only one supporting WDS !

    What is WDS? :dog:

    and what version firmware should I go for an upgrade on my wag54 v1?

    Wireless Distribution System is the way to bridge/repeat wireless signal...

    Example : you can do a wireless link between 2 Wag 1.2 but only with 1.02.7

    I update what I said before.

    WDS works fine with 1.03.1 on WAG54G 1.x.

    With this version, there is no need to manually enter the MAC addresses into the WDS menu. All the MAC adresses of AP's around are automatically sniffed !

    More recent firmware for WAG54G 2.0 is 1.01.27 !

    I bought a WAG54G from eBay supposedly new. (there was no plastic wapping around it)
    The mac addr. on label under the unit is nothing like the actual MAC,
    MAC (from label): 0002DD3004EE
    LAN MAC address (WindowsXP “arp -a” command): 00-13-10-00-02-06
    Radio MAC address (captured by OmniPeek): 00:13:10:00:02:06
    From WAG54G Web GUI: Status > Gateway, MAC addr: 00-13-10-00-02-07
    and the serial number on the label is,

    When I try to update the firmware with,
    4,436,024 bytes (which Linksys support said is the right size)
    using this method TFTP method,

    I get,
    Error on server : Wrong Code Pattern

    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Regards, MH
