    The shops started selling WAG54G routers instead of the WRT54 G, and I have some questions:
    1- On the box there is no WiFi certifiaction. Does WAG54G support WPA 12 8 bit?
    2- If it supports WPA, can we use tinypeap and/or sveasoft firmware on WGA54G?
    3- As it has only one antenna is the power same as WRT54G?
    4- I have an adsl modem already, so I will use the router as an AP only (bridge mode? client mode?), is this possible with WAG 54G?
    5-What is the main difference with respect to WRT54G?

    Thanks for answers,

    It supports WPA, but the "uplink" is a telephone jack, so you can't use it as a WRT54G. I did know what those 2 atennas were for, but I forgot, nevertheless I think two antennas is more show than useful: Most other brands also have only one antenna...

    1. Here is a copy of the Wi-Fi Alliance certification.

    2. You will need to use custom firmware written specifically for WAG54G, not WRT54G firmware.

    3. The radio chip should be near identical in power, but having 2 antennae help with the reception.
