Wireless-G PCI Adapter with SRX400 ???

    I have a WRT54GX4 Wireless-G Broadband Router with SRX400.

    I need a SRX400 capable PCI Adapter for my desktop. However, I only see a Wireless-G Notebook Adapter with SRX400 (WMP54GX).

    Is it true that the only way to make use of SRX400 is to use the Notebook adapter and Desktop users are SOL?

    ...or will the Wireless-G PCI Adaptor with plain old SRX take advanted of the router's new SRX400 technology?

    Any response would be greatly appreciated.

    any of the desktop SRX cards will take advantage of the SRX400 router. If theres any benefit in waiting to find the "SRX400" version of the card over the others i dont know.

    Just contacted tech support adout the release of the desktop adaptor for srx400. They claim they are working on it. If I find out, more I will post. I have a SRX400 and would like to get a adaptor asap.

    If you need one now, as mentioned above, you can use the WMP54GX PCI adapter. It will take advantage of the SRX and give you the extended distance. It just won't give you the "240" connection, only 108(I used the notebook SRX version for a couple days before getting my hands on the SX400 notebook version)

    Go to the FCC OET search web site: and ehttps://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/oet/cf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfm and enter Q87 as a prefix with 01/01/2006 with a starting grant date and see if there is a listing for a WMP54GX with a version higher than 1.0. New devices appear from one or more months after a listing at the FCC site. Unless you are transferring files between computers on your network you do not need more throughput than the WMP54GX v1.0. Most internet connection are not faster than 15mbs unless you are using fiber or an enhanced cable connection.
