    Anyone know the difference on the v1 and v2 of the WPC54G cards?

    No idea, Simon, apart from the new one carries the new Wi-Fi Certified logo for B ang G standards, while the old one is only certified for B.

    I couldn't even download the driver to take a look, but at least Linksys has been consistent in making their mistakes - this time incorrect driver version in the upgrade instructions.

    I managed to download the driver for V.2 just now.

    The ZIP file contains 2 sets of drivers. One is our old friend the Broadcom NDIS 5.0 driver version 3.30.15. The other is the new V.2 driver version, originally from Texas Instruments, so it appears V.2 is using TI chipset.

    According to my information, only the wpc11 v4 uses the ti chipset. i'll double check in the morning

    Download the V.2 driver and you should see a Linksys driver matching the driver version number and its corresponding INF containing references to TI as the manufacturer, which has led me to conclude it may be using a TI chipset.

    I just downloaded the V.4 driver from FTP since I couldn't find its product page. It contains the good old Broadcom driver (3.30.15) and 2 Inprocomm drivers (presumably as a set).

    Inprocomm is a company based in Taiwan.
