Hi, I have had a Linksys WAG54G for about 5 months now, after recently fixing a constantly cutting out wireless connection I now have a intermittent internet connection. I had previously the 1.03.0 BETA firmware (for a couple of hours at least) thats when the problem of the faulty wireless connection was fixed but the internet connection then became faulty. I have since down-graded firmware to 1.02.1 however this has not fixed the internet connection problem. If anyone has any ideas please help, I am on the verge of throwing the thing out the window!

Hi Jamestech,

I'd throw the thing out the window... want to see the world's longest forum thread on the "issues" of the WAG54G firmware?
http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=205861&p=1

The thread started almost a year ago and nobody has figured out any resolution.  

Although this guy seemed to think lowering the MTU to 1300 would do the trick:  http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/remark,10534277?hilite=wag54g+problems

Only thing is that will slow down your Internet connection... seems like the wrong thing to do to me.

Good Luck!
