Lynksys WAG54g Ethernet ports

routersWell, After performing very well for the last few years, my Linksys WAG54g ADSL Router is now not much more than a brick.


Over the past few days we have been having intermittent outages of the wired network. (Eg: my servers kept dropping off the network) Wireless and ADSL connection were not effected.


Fortunately my D-Link 504 and my Linksys WRT54g are still in tact so I was able to rebuild the network and bridge my WRT54g and D-Link quickly. (Not what a girl wants to be doing on a Saturday) 🙁


I won’t however be buying a new Linksys WAG54g. After a little research it seems to be a common issue. I don’t know if the network was spiked or not but I think I’ll go back to using D-Link hardware. Sorry Linksys.


But this seems to have happened to a lot of people on a lot of occasions. You have lost my business for your network equipment

  1. Hi Kimberly. Thanks for the heads up on the wag54g. Seems like your ‘Insignificant Little Web Space’ (along with a few other pages) has made a significant impact on my decision. Keep up the blogs, they are more helpful than you know.
    Kind regards (and thanks),
