    Using cable modem and the router.

    Firmware release 1.00.9 may correct some issues however it created the router to lock up the wan access through the router, effectively stopping all internet access. However the LAN side works. Linksys superb tech support team issued me an valid defective ticket to get a new unit through warranty.
    So you ask why am I marking firmware release 1.00.9 as the problem? After finding the older firmware I loaded the 1.00.6 firmware back to the router and it now it works fine. However what ever the problem 1.00.6 has it must still exist.

    key words.
    wrt54g v5 1.00.9 drops connection
    wrt54g v5 1.00.6

    Same problem as both of you. I've tried my best to find a downloadable copy of v1.00.6 and can't. Would one of you please e-mail me a copy? evile(at)e420place.com

    A link to a download would also work.

    What ISP are you guys on? And what kind of connection, Cable or DSL?

    Can you also detail what kind of network activity was going on when it locks up (Internet surfing, FTP downloads, P2P app, etc) or is it random?

    My isp is Prodigy Infinitum, i'm in mexico city and the service is DSL.

    It happened to me just while browsing or using msn mesenger, nothing out of usual.

    SBC Global DSL.

    This router serves a business and has the several port forwarding rules enabled to pass through SMTP, POP3, HTTP, HTTPS, VPN, RDP, DNS and PPTP passthrough is enabled. IDENT traffic is also allowed so the domain e-mail will work.

    The lock-ups only occur during business hours when there is traffic passing, but it appears to be primarily when a larger volume of traffic passes during a short period, almost like it is dependent on the number of states the firewall is maintaining at a given time.
