I've just bought this wireless modem/router marked "manufactured 01/2007", so I think it's wise to upgrade its firmware ?
Now, looking in the "download" section of Linksys I found 2 versions newer than my WAG (1.01.04 dated 4/4/07 and 1.01.06 dated 12/17/07), so :
- How to know which firmware version my WAG is currently equipped with ?
- Do I have to upgrade it both versions one after the other, or can I upgrade directly with the newest version (1.01.06) ?
The Linksys available download upgrades are coming under zipped ".img" files : how to deal with ?
Many thanks in advances for your answers,

Hi, go to your modem admin...
a) Open Firefox or IE
b) Type 192.168.1.1
c) type in your router username and password
default user is "admin"default password is "admin"
d) Look at the top right hand side of the screen , there is a small description that says "firmware version".
You can see which firmware version you are on.
If you wish to upgrade, download the latest firmware in a zip file. Unzip the file to your desktop.
Assuming you are still logged in , go to Administration >> Firmware Upgrade >>
You will reach a screen where they will ask you to direct the location of the new firmware.
Browse until you reach the firmware ( its an img file which you unzipped earlier).
imho.. just use for your new WAG200G for the time being and read up if the actual firmware upgrade is really required.
its its working fine, leave it be.

Many thanks for your answer.
My WAG's firmware is quite old (1.00.09), but so far working fine... I'll keep it as it is for the time being.
Wishing you an happy new year,

I have the same problem. Upgrading from 1.01.05 to 1.01.09. Upgrading bar goes to 100% then setup page is opened but firmware version remains 1.01.05.
Tried factory reset, hard reboot, soft reboot, power cut without success.
Hope someone knows how to solve this.

I was upgrading firmware(1.00.09) of my Linksys modem WAG200G to fw(1.01.090). During upgrade my PC connection lost from modem I wait long time but no connection back. Then I disconnect my modem from power and also hardware reset by pressing reset internal pin. But now I can not connect to my modem by intering IP address 192.168.1.1. Can you please let me know how I can access to modem to rollback firmware or go again for upgrade please?
