Diffs between WET54G v2 & v3?

    I just purchased a Linksys WET54G bridge. My needs are simple: I want to connect a wired network in one part of my house to a Linksys WRTP54G wireless router in another part of the house, without running a bunch of cable. I've installed and configured the new WET54G (also using a Linksys switch on the wired portion), and so far (less than 24 hours), things are running fine.

    When Amazon sent me the WET54G, they sent the v2 model. I know that there is a v3 model available. How significant are the differences between the v2 and v3 models, and is it worth sending the v2 back and requesting the current model, especially when, at least so far, I haven't had any issues?

    Thanks in advance!

    The v2 works, the v3 is junk. I have one of each.

    I just got a beta firmware v1.11, (Mar 03, 2006) for version 3 of the WET54G, still no better. :(

    Switched over to the Buffalo bridges and they stay connected and get better throughput to boot.
