    Hi - I've had great luck with the WRV54g with about 15 clients. This one is the first one that appears headed out to pasture...

    Verizon DSL. PPoE. Westell 2200 modem, set to Bridge mode. WRV54g Firmware=2.39.2

    All was working fine for months. WAN connection died. (Internet LED light turned amber). Tried reinstalling FW. (same version).

    Swapped router out with an RV042, which works fine for now. But i'd still like to put the wireless back in at the client location.

    Any suggestions? Has anyone had one of these puppies die yet, displaying the symptoms i just described?

    Set the WRV54g to the same ip address/subnet as the rest of the subnet and then run Cat5 from your RV to one of the four LAN ports on your WRV54G

    WRV54G - EOL? PPoE issue? Resolved for now...,.

    Thanks for the suggestion, DocLarge.

    the WRV54g is not dead yet. Here are the two things i did:

    1. rolled back the firmware from 2.39.2 to the linksysinfo preferred version 2.37.13

    2. Moved the WRV54g to another location and used Comcast cable modem with DHCP. It works as expected. It's in an environment with low needs of router features, so i think i'll leave it there.

    Thanks for making this website possible. It's been a big help!
