    I just bought WPC54G.
    It says on the box, model no: WPC54G-EU

    On the card it says WPC54G v3.1

    what are the latest drivers&firmare for the specific card and where can I download them? I went to linksys.com , but different drivers show for each country (I tried US, United Kingdom, France...). some say v7, some v2, etc.
    I couldn't find my card.
    I tried installing the drivers from the UK page, it says v7, latest drivers. but the drivers couldn't recognize my card...
    here is the driver tab:

    If someone could shed some light on this, please.

    nah... I don't have time to meddle with that.
    I've checked linksys.com thoroughly, and 3.100.64.0 is the latest driver for my card.
    thnx anyway. :)

    Hey Guy stop drinking ! :rolleyes:
    3.100.64.0 is a Broadcom firmware too !
    The chipset on your card is made by Broadcom and the 4.80.28.7 is the last firmware...

    Don't come here if you don't understand what you do ! :biggrin:

    hm...downloaded those Broadcom drivers, installed them, but the wireless utility won't work then.
    do I have to use Windows Zero Configuration?

    Most likely. The Linksys wireless client manager hasn't been tested with the new driver and so there could be problems in their intergation which is what you are experiencing.

    It works with Windows Zero Configuration. :)
    Too bad Linksys didn't release the new drivers with their utility.

    Question: in Windows Zero Configuration, under WPA2-PSK, why do I have only TKIP OR AES and not TKIP+AES as shown in WRT54GL settings?

    My guess is the feature is a carried over from WPA days when not all adapter drivers support AES. IMHO, the setting on the router is superfluous for WPA2 since it supports TKIP and AES, while WPA is TKIP only, with AES an added extra on only some brands like Linksys. From the wireless client's point of view, the Access Point can only implement one security mode between TKIP and AES. From the AP's view, there is a possibility that one client may support WPA-TKIP while another may support AES in addition. The setting on the router is an attempt to support both types of client adapters at the same time without having the router give up the stronger AES support. If the client supports WPA2, then it will connect to the AP in WPA2-AES mode regardless.
