    I'm searching for a few weeks now if it is posible to add WPA2 encription to the WLAN connection of my WAG54G v2 (Annex A).

    I'm beginning to doubt if there even is a firmware with support for WPA2.
    At this moment i'm runnint v1.02.00 firmware.

    Is there a firmware (official linksys of third party) for a WAG54Gv2 with WPA2 support availible?

    no, there is not.

    i mailed to linksys that evey other routers offer the WPA2, so that i'd like them to forward this request to their engineer, expecting it will be on the "to do" list.

    They answered me that they have forwarded it ....

    Well, more we will mail about it, more we will have a chance that one day.... so do it! :)

    thanks for your reply.
    I'll mail them as soon as posible. I want my security as good as possible, in this case WPA2. I hope they'll implement it soon :)

    [edit]
    Mail sent.
    I'll post the awnser to my question when i get one.

    if you're router doesn't support WPA2, alternative or even a better security is setting up RADIUS authentication

    The setup in which i'm using the router is at home. I haven't got a server where i can run RADUIS on. [hr:af42c5c7af]

    I received a mail from linksys this morning

    So at this moment there is nothing that can be done but wait. and hope that the developers will pick this one up soon.
    And ofcourse send them as much mail as possible about this as ReDFlaG mentioned. The sooner they'll react

    You can wait a lot...
    WDS is a functionnality working well on WAG 1.2, but never reproduced on WAG 2.0 in spite of a lot of demands...

    Even if i'm using Radius (microsoft IAS) because it's the most secure way, i think that using WPA with a very strong key is quite secure since it will take years for someone to brute force the key.

    don't you think so?

    Further more, there is probably no good hacker in your neighbourhood... :police:
