Purchased: June 2007
Condition: Completely new, rarely used. I used it only for few months before safekeeping. No scratches.
I bought this Linksys WAG54GS Wireless-G ADSL Modem in 2007 as a backup. I rarely used it as most of the ISP provided their own free modems. As I’ve collected quite a few modems and routers I decided to sell this.
Linksys Modems are the best in the world. I’ve been using Linksys since long time and never had any trouble with any of the moedems/routers I’ve used.
My house is quite big and when I used Linksys WAG54GS for wireless Internet it provided fantastic coverage. I could access Internet at least 20 meters away on the other side of the house.

Some of the security features:
I’ve BT broadband and my BT hub doesn’t work too well. My BT broadband hub is on ground floor and I’m having difficulty in accessing wireless upstairs. Connection often drops.
I was thiking to change the Modem and wondering if Linksys WAG54GS will work well in my house? Any thought on it?
I’m ready to pay for next day delivery, let me know how much for it. Also let me know your bank account details so that we can close the deal.
When I used this modem I used with BT broadband and few other providers as well. For me it worked perfectly fine.
Yes it will work perfectly fine on 2 floors provided you don’t have some kind of floor insulation which blocks signals.
I don’t see Ethernet cable in the picture, but you mentioned it is in the box, could you clarify if Ethernet cable is included int he box or not?
Sorry I missed it while taking picture. Yes it is included in the box.
Why don’t you accept paypal?
Paypal doesn’t offer any protection to sellers. Any hacker can hack paypal account and use it to buy any product over Internet and when they find it out they refund the payment to buyer.
Recently there was an article in Metro. One guy sold a product on eBay and got scammed in this way.
So no paypal. If you are in the UK then I see why you can’t pay via BACS?
Besides that paypal also deduct commission, BACS is free.
Could you deliver in Germany?
I can deliver to any part of the world but delivery cost will become more and at the end you will find it cheaper to buy a new modem in your country than buying from me. I’m not sure how much it cost to send to Germany via Royal Mail but it must be about £5-£10 which will make it about £40. I’m sure you can buy a new one in less than this price in Germany.
How can configure Linksys WAG54GS Wireless-G ADSL modem as Gateway to be used in our small office? And how many conmputers/laptops it can support?
