Which firmware for wap54g?

    Hi all,

    I didn't realise the WAP54g devices could also be 'hacked' like the WRT models and NSLU2 etc.
    I'm quite excited that it can be.

    I think my device is a v1, with the reset switch next to the left antenna (as you look at it on the back). It is an original UK device.

    It's got v2.07 offical Linksys firmware on it (Not from factory - I upgraded to that).

    What I'm completely confused about is which firmware to go for. The main feature I want is proper WDS support. The APs I have for this are USRobotics units, a 3com, and PC with hostap driver. I don't mean have them all on a WDS "mesh", but I'd just like to know that WDS does work properly with it all.

    The other features I've read about are increasing the radio units power to maximum and selecting a specific antenna. These two features also sound quite appealing. In fact, with an increase in power, it may even mean I don't need WDS support.

    What should I go for?

    And, also, how do I make sure I install it correctly (I don't want to destroy it!).
