    I imagine it probably uses the single chip 802.11g solution that broadcom recently announced, and does away with the Mini PCI. From the size of the card, I would say its probably be safe to say at least my second guess is right ;-)

    EDIT: Woopsy, it was Atheros that announced a single chip solution for 802.11g. This should be interesting since Linksys doesn't have any Atheros based G products (that I know of). That would be a big design win for Atheros - I'd expect press releases... got a link anyone?

    Current Atheros/Linksys Producs

    A quick search on Atheros' site turns up these are the current products from Linksys using the Atheros solutions - and they're ALL either A or A/B/G.

    No mention of the WMP54Gv4

    More on the developing story as it comes available.

    Yeah I noticed it was labelled as a v.4 on the JEPG.

    There is apparently also a v.4 WPC54G adapter as well as a WRK54G router (both are on sale in the stores), so Linksys really ought to update their sites more often.

    Speaking from experience, I bought one of these about 5 months ago it came broken out of the box. I ended up having to download a driver file from RALINK to get it to work. If this is a newer version, maybe it might work directly after purchase...

    So what's the difference between the two?
    This chip 802.11g and mini PCI thingy is a bit high level for me. :|
