WMP54GS: version 1 vs 1.1/feedback?

    I bought two WMP54GS network cards from Staples the other day, and learned that I'd gotten two different hardware versions of the card when I got them home and open the boxes and peeked through the plastic to check for different version numbers.

    One is simply a WMP54GS (version 1- version # not printed) and the other is a v1.1, and states as much on the label placed on the radio.

    I have to try and return the version one card and get another v1.1. The nic pictures on the boxes were different, and I'd had to ask for the second unit because they only had the 1.0 on the shelf, but I went ahead and bought them, thinking the packaging might be the only difference. I was wrong. Nothing on the boxes I could find listed version numbers. They do list the 1.1 weighing less and being a narrower card, but I didn't even think to look at the size specs. I was looking for a version number.

    So in long, what I'd like to ask is if anyone has had any problems with the new WMP54GS v1.1 cards, and also if anyone knows the differences between the new cards.

    Physically, the v1's radio is twice the width of the newer v1.1.

    Did Linksys start using a different processor?

    What issues are resolved with the v1.1 that occured with the v1.0?

    TIA :D

    Have you ever learned what is different about 1.1 as opposed to ver 1.0?

    I have a WMP54GS v1.0 and the card "feels" not realy fast and i often have only 1MBit/s . I wanted to change my card and read now that there is again a completely new card version ( http://www.linksysinfo.org/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=15462&highlight=wmp54gs )
    Does the new version work better/faster?
    And where is the difference between the v1 and v1.1(i know that the 1.1 is smaler,but is there no otehr difference between the 2 cards?)
