    Can anyone tell me why there is such a huge difference between US and European firmware and drivers for the WRT54G and the WMP54g ? (And probably for other products too, haven't checked that.)

    best regards,

    I don't if it is already true but at the "begining" of Wi-fi, there was a difference between Wifi channels numbers :
    US= 11 channels only
    EU= 13 channels
    and the max power of radio emissions (10 mw / 100 mw , I think)

    mainly due to Telecommunication Regulation organizations restrictions/laws (typically in France where I live)
