    As you may guess, i am another guy who in the moment is promissing not to buy Linksys again.

    I bought a WAG54G, and could't sleep again. The wireless link goes down after some time (between 10 and 30 minutes), and only comes back with a reboot.

    After searching the net, I found out that the problem wasn't only mine, and tried everything people suggested in this forum.
    Tried with/without WEP, with/without firewall, changed the default SSID, factory reset... And as last resort, firmware upgrade.

    The unit came with firmware 1.01.6, so I tried not to mess with it, because people said it was the more stable, but eventualy i upgraded to 1.02.3. Didn't work either.

    So i had this thought. Can the people who managed to put their unit working with only firmware upgrades/downgrades post the working configuration, so we could see what probably is the best match? Kind of a statistic... And another thind we can find out with this is if our unit is broken or not. Imagine firmware 1.02.3 works for everybody. If it doesn't work for someone, tha person knows it is more probable to be a hardware issue. I know there is a forum just for this, but there are no votes, and it is only for official releases, and i don't mind an unofficial release to solve the problem. :)

    Best wishes.

    My non working config:
    Workstations: D-link G520+
    Laptop: Linksys WPC54G
    O.S: Windows XP Home
    Modem/Router: WAG54G
    WEP: 64bit
    WAN: PPPoE
    1.01.6 - Not Working.
    1.02.3 - Not Working.

    Thanks for the support, but allready tried that, and didn't work.
    The problem isn't the client getting disconected. The problem is that signal dissapears. And with diferent cards.

    But do you have a WAG54G? What is your config?

    Best regards.

    hardware failure?

    I would think its a hardware failure, seems like the wireless is dropping out on the unit because its happening with multiple clients, and multiple wireless cards
