Just another person to say that I downgraded to V2.00.17 and immediately my internet speed increased by a factor of FOUR. I didn't even do a full power-off.
The idea with firmware releases is newer ones are supposed to INCREASE performance. I got the .20 version with the modem out of the box. If it's not good enough, it should not be sold to the average punter in that condition.

I've had a similar problem with the WAG160N v1 (Annex A) for the last couple of weeks. Download speed with Ethernet is 4.5mbps, but wireless is only 0.5mbps - clearly a problem with the wireless functionality.
I've tried to fix by updating the firmwire to v 1.00.16, resetting the router and tinkered with a few channel settings etc but nothing seems to solve the problem.
Can anyone help?....... or should I just ditch Linksys and buy a more reliable wireless router?

Try to do the follows steps with the router.
# Open up the browser and on the address bar type 192.168.1.1 that will open up the Gateway setup page.
# Lower the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) from 1500 to 1400 or less (usually found on your routers main/ basic setup page). Here is the link for determining and setting up the correct MTU size: http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?vw=1&docid=
# Then click on Security tab disable SPI Firewall Protection, uncheck Filter Anonymous Internet Requests...
Then check the connectivity status..

I recently purchased the WAG160N with 2.00.20 and also having my DOWN capped to below 2 MB/s on a 17 MB/s DOWN line.
I can't seem to get that link to work to download the 2.00.17 firmware, and for some reason Tech Support don't archive their previous firmware, so they don't have a link.
Can someone else put a link up that works? Tried the previous on both IE and Firefox.
