Linksys WAG54Gv2 Issue

By | February 6, 2008

I currently have a Linksys WAG54Gv2 running at home, and I have never seen a modem to be so temperamental. It randomly looses the internet link, the wireless also. I awoke this morning, and noticed the laptop had lost the WLAN connection, so I checked the modem and saw no internet light on. As per usual, I power cycle both the modem and laptop, still no WLAN activity. I hard-reset the modem, connected an ethernet cable and reconfigured the connection, but this wasn’t good enough.

The firmware was v1.01.25, so I WAG54Gv2 Pluto download the WAG54Gv2 Firmware the “unofficial” v1.02.14-Pluto which is the Linksys firmware, but it has updated tools, bugfixes etc. The changes in v1.02.14-Pluto are:

Further improved httpd speed
Fixed a minor bug in httpd involving management.asp
Updated iptables from 1.2.7a to 1.3.6
Modified iptables setup regarding IPSEC/NAT as per rogerp’s suggestions
Status page detects Annex M modes correctly
Status page displays “Unknown mode” if synch is something we don’t yet detect.
Fixed a minor typo in style.css
