    According to a post in Sveasoft site Linksys might use new BCM5350 in one of their new products. One thing that Linksys could add is a USB interface. At least some other manufacturers do include a USB interface in their Wlan router products based on Broadcom chips.

    Does anyone know why Linksys has not included a USB interface in their WRT54G or WRT54GS Wlan routers? Hope that they change that.

    According to my sources Broadcom chips BCM4702, BCM4712 and BCM5350 all do have USB interface built in.

With the new chip the WRT units will >have just two core chips and a power amplifier. The chip includes an >onboard IPSec acceleration engine.
