Default Linksys WAG54G latest Firmware + issues

A couple of posters in this group recently asked about the latest firmware
for the Linksys WAG54G.

I E-Mailed Linksys UK support and was sent a link to 1.02.7 Annex A (plain
ADSL) =
ftp://ftp.linksys.com/international/....7_03_code.bin

I installed this and had to perform a couple of factory resets, power downs
and configurations before I could get going. It didn't take too long so I
wasn't too unhappy.

To my disappointment, the issues I had reported were not addressed e.g. WPA
TKIP is set but encryption is reported as disabled (support told me that WPA
isn't supported yet on the WAG54G!!??? - I know it's working, it's just the
reporting isn't right) and there is a restriction on the number of
characters that can be submitted to the E-Mail address field for the alerts
meaning I cannot use my preferred address.

Anyway, I was pleased to be up and running and there is new functionality
that I thought I could look at.

Only 36 hours later, I find that I am experiencing the issues that I have
read about a few times. My WUSB54G adapter cannot detect the AP. The
lights on the AP are all green. When I do a reset the Internet light is
red, moves to green and I can connect for 3 or 4 minutes before the AP
disappears again.

Not wanting to mess about, I have reverted my WAG54G to build 1.01.6 and all
is well again.

Does anyone have a link to a stable build and does anyone have any insight
as to when Linksys will publish only stable builds? I find it impossible to
get any sensible answers. Also when will WPA AES be supported - it's on the
drop down but says it's not supported yet. Why put it as a drop down
option?

For coming days, I'll stick to 1.01.6 until someone can point me to a stable
build.

I hope this information helps someone else......

When you say of WPA "I know it's working, it's just the reporting isn't
right", how do you *know* this? From what you describe, it doesn't sound
like it's working properly.

I believe it is working correctly because I have to set up on both sides
(app and adapter) to get a connection.
By the way, having rest the ap to the earlier release, I had to power off /
power on again after 12 hours of use - I had none of this prior to to
starting the upgrades / downgrade!

Have you read up on WPA? I don't use it, but I understand it changes keys
periodically. It may be that this is the point where you lose your
connection, and this is why it has apparently been withdrawn. Just guessing
really. Do I understand you are using WPA with 1.01.6?

I'm far from being competent in WPA but yes, I understand that the key
changes - every 3600 seconds on my system. Yes, I use WPA with 1.01.6.
Unfortunately, my drop-out on later firmware was minutes, only 3 or 4
minutes.
