    I have a wireless network with a WMP54G Version 4 and a WUSB54G Version 1 connecting to a WRT54G Version 2 router. All of them are updated to the latest drivers and firmware from Linksys. I was wondering if there was a driver out there that makes a WUSB54G Version 1 support WPA2 security? I really would like to have that security, but the linksys drivers for the WUSB54G Version 1 don't support it. Would I just have to get my dad to go out and buy another WMP54G version 4?
