    I don't see anybody on this forum saying nothing about the Firmware v1.00.4 for the WRT54G v5 ...


    I wonder if anyone already tried it and what were the results ...

    This because the V5 is the only model version available on the stores nearby me .... And I don't want to buy it without beeing sure that this firmware release fixed (at least) the downstream speeds problem.

    Forgot to tell that this v1.00.4 is an official Linksys release.
    Not third party one.

    I have WRT54G v5 with 1.00.4 and it works fine. :) downstream speed problems are fixed. WAN max. throughput is now 49 Mbps

    I just upgraded my WRT54G v5 to the 1.04 firmware and it made a HUGE difference! The increase in speed is noticable. :cheering:

    i just bought this router and upgraded the firmware

    sometimes the webinterface hangs.
    im getting 1<*ms pings to router from a client pc.
    and tracerouters show to first hop being the destination
    on the plus side the speeds look good

    $ traceroute linksysinfo.org
    traceroute to linksysinfo.org (, 64 hops max, 40 byte packets
     1  mx2.anon-host.com (  2.169 ms  2.084 ms  1.987 ms
    $ ping -c 1
    PING ( 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=1.963 ms
    --- ping statistics ---
    1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 1.963/1.963/1.963/0.000 ms

    i did

    it seems to be faster over client to client file transfers and general use

    but more unstable now

    iam getting net disconnects, have to unplug it for a minute and plug her back in

    these routers have problems

    releaseing the dhcp does nothing at all.

    on a plus note i was getting 47 mbps checked with soloarwinds network gauge. but its just plain unstable, at least 4 disconnects a day

    and i know its not my isp my dB and line noise are PERFECT. the home is brand new aswell wiring is good

    no reports of poor connectivty in my area through cox ither

    OK Guys ...

    If the downstream speed problems are cleared with this firmware release version ... perhaps I'll take my chance and gonna test the V5 (to be honest I don't have a choice and the store will get it back if I don't like it ... nice, huh ?).
