I have an old WGA54G. V 1.0, I think.
I pulled it ou to use it. I plugged it all in and into ethernet on my switch, it booted up ok and it was connected to my dsl router.
I noticed it's MAC address in my router.Same as the sticker.
So all that worked.
I went into it with it's IP address and it all looked normal, it had it's own MAC address listed on the web UI and all.
I put in my local wep key and told it to connect to my wireless so I could take it and plug it into the XBOX 360 in the livingroom.
That all seemed to work OK too. It connected to the wireless.So far so good Then it became unresponsive. Now this is connected to ethernet and also wireless.
Connection timed out
But then I noticed the MAC address listed on the web UI is well, mostly blank.
I looked in the router again and it's listed as being connected wired and the MAC is correct.
So what's up with this mac address as listed on the web UI?
How can that be changed back to normal?
I reflashed the unit to the latest firmware.
I hooked it to the Xbox 360
The Xbox 360 liked it and asked me what the wep key was, all of which I had put on that unit before I hooed it to the xbox 360. But it connected.
It seemed ok but it couldn't get an IP from the DHCP so I gave it one outside my DHCP range. Then it complained it couldn't get DNS from the router. So I gave it the google public DNS 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11. Then it complained it couldnt' find Xbox Live in DNS. I tried my ISPs dns. Same error.
Can anyone shed light on this? Am i doing something wrong?

And it sure won't connect.
Can't get an IP, can't get dns if I set it up static.
I have 4 other wireless devices on the network and they all work.
So I dunno.

Did you reset the WGA54G after updating it with the latest firmware? It is recommended to reset the device after upgrading the firmware. Try to reset the WGA54G.
Here is the steps to reset the router:
Push the reset button on WGA54G for 30 seconds, turn off the WGA54G wait for 30 seconds and then power it on. Power light should blink when you perform the reset process.
Before trying to connect your Wireless-G Game Adapter to a wireless network, please know the following: SSID, Wireless Security and/or Network Key. Make sure that the Xbox™ works when wired to the router before proceeding.

I didn't reset it after reflashing it. But i did before.
It had a weird MAC before and still after.I reflashed it because of the weird MAC.
I will try to reset it again.
I know all about my network, so I have no problems with that information, SSID, Key, etc.
I was hoping someone would share with me a secret website where the MAC can be set. Is there one?

Well try to reset the gaming adapter and configure it back with the same settings and then check the status.. As there is no such secret website where the MAC can be set.
