Thanks, John, for re-directing me to this group. I am confronted with another problem, and maybe someone here can point me in the right direction. I can't buy a replacement Linksys WAG54G ADSL Gateway.

I have tried locally (Oklahoma City) to purchase a replacement for my Linksys WAG54G Wireless-G ADSL Gateway, but no one has them in stock. Has this item been dropped from production, or is there some other explanation? If the WAG54G is no longer available, what should I consider using as a replacement?

I'm still not absolutely sure this unit is failing, or has failed. It works very well sometimes, then gets all balled up at other times. Is there anything else that might be causing these problems.

My ADSL service provider, SWBell, sent a technician out yesterday and checked the line. That all seems to be in very good order. He even plugged the telephone patch cord that usually connects to my Linksys Gateway into his laptop and checked the line, including the house wiring. This also checked out fine.
