    I received a WAP54G yesterday, and I’m endeavoring to get it up and running.

    I decided to go ahead and give it a shot, knowing Linksys is horrible with communication. As it turned out, I was right. This unit does have WPA2 though it’s not mentioned on their site, the box, or in the instructions [see pic below].

    The web interface is seriously lagging, at time taking multiple clicks to respond to saves or tab changes.

    If I try to set a static address it locks up and is unreachable until I reset to factory defaults.

    Looking at the firmware, it is version 6050 [see pic below]. To make sure I had the latest I checked Linksys (http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Download_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115417109974&packedargs=sku%3D1114037289494&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper) but they only show up to version 6049!

    All joking aside Linksys/Cisco, it is way past time to put some serious boot to some behind. Poor product description/information = Lost Revenue

    Sincerely,

    P.S.
    Upgraded from a BEFSX41 to a RVL200 - enjoying my experience thus far (2 weeks).

    You'll get that sort of thing from all vendors, but it's more honorable to advertize less capabilities than overstating capabilities IMHO.

    Update: Latest Status

    I have got wireless communication to functional with WPA2. Communications responses have much improved.

    Still trying to get actual print functions opperational with HP PhotoSmart 7550. It seems to be issues with the printer/software.

    Multiple connects and reconnects; enable, disable and re-enable security actions needed to get all wireless computers to communicate with device at WPA2. Not likely to be reasonable for the common user, but I refuse to downgrade my WLAN security for a print server.
