    Hello everbody,

    Two weeks ago I bought a WAP54G v1.0 and it hasn't been running properly from the start. When I try to access the admin page from Internet Explorer it just shows http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/none.asp in the status bar and nothing happens. Opera on Windows/Linux gives similar results. Konqueror loads the admin site but the row with tabs is distorted. Mozilla Firefox on Linux is the only browser that works properly for me.

    Anyone else having similar problems?

    Besides that, I have upgraded to firmware version 2.07, Apr 08, 2004. As I have read a lot of nasty things about Linksys firmware, I'm trying to downgrade to 1.09 to see if that solves the problem. But I'm not able to do this because when I push the upgrade button after selecting the firmware file, nothing happens. Probably because of the same problem.

    Is there any possibility to see what the Access Point is busy with?

    Thanx in advance!

    just found out a little more...

    I am able to access the admin page with other browsers than Firefox if I disable the wired interface in my laptop and only access the AP through the wireless card. Could this point to some routing problem? Still it remains strange that 1 browser works and the others don't.

    I have managed to downgrade to 1.09 by now...

    Did you do a hard reset? For 30 to 60 sec. Then Flash with new Firmware Then Hard reset again Might help.

    Hi Morpheus,

    yes, I did a hard reset and waited for 30 seconds. It seems to be working better now, as long as I use my laptop wireless only. I have upgraded the AP to 2.08 again and it went well this time. For the first time I got a messages 'Upgrade completed' (or something like that).

    My next problem is a loss of network connectivity. I can browse, but after a few clicks the browsing stops and no data is received anymore. I think this might be a routing problem, as my wireless and wired LAN's use the same subnet.

    The AP is connected to a switch on which my firewall (a Linux box) is also connected. Everything is in the same subnet. Should I use a different subnet for my wireless network? Because this would mean I'd have to use either a crosscable directly to a network card in my firewall, or a separate networkcard in the firewall on a different subnet.

    Forgot something...while browsing stops, a ping to the same server keeps on going, even while the browser says the server isn't available anymore.

    Ok, thanx for the help anyway.

    I'll dive a little deeper into a packet trace.
