Annex A/Annex B

Hi,

I have WAG354G wireless router and would like to upgrade the firmware on it, I believe it is version 1.

There's two firmware downloads to choose from: Annex A and Annex B.

What is the difference between the two? How can I find out which one I need?

I would appreciate any help and pointers.

Thank you.

Re: Annex A/Annex B

Annex A = ADSL
Annex B = ISDN

Annex A is ADSL over PSTN ( UK ) and Annex B is ADSL over ISDN ( Germany )

Re: Annex A/Annex B

Re: Annex A/Annex B

Hi, This is a bit tricky but I did it on WAG54G2. It was AnnexB, I have changed it to AnnexA.

OK. As I have mentioned I did it for WAG54G2, so you have to check if this is possible for your model as well, also there is no any guaranty and I cannot take responsibility if you damage your device. You do this on your own risk. What I did is the following:

1. downloaded GPL code from linksys: WAG54G2_GPL_v1.00.12_AnnexA.tgz

2. untar/unzip it

3. cd to GPL_v1.00.12_AnnexA directory

4. locate and open file: Makefaile

5. found line: ifeq ("$(ANNEX)","A") cd $(IMAGE_DIR) && cp -f wag54g2.pid.a wag54g2.pid && cp -f fs.sqsh squashfs.bin && ./bb && mv wag54g2.bin wag54g2_$(ANNEX)_$(FW_VER)$(FW_SUB_VERSION).bin && cp wag54g2_$(ANNEX)_$(FW_VER)$(FW_SUB_VERSION).bin ../Results/ endif

6. change: wag54g2.pid.a with wag54g2.pid.b in that line

7. save file.

8. make image and upload on to device.

Hi, I dont see your model in gpl code center ( http://www.linksysbycisco.com/MEA/en/supportgplcode ) so it is hard to say is this possible or not.
