    Hi, I'm from Italy.
    I want to buy a WAG54G v2 (very difficult to find in Italy), but I have read some post of this forum... is a good idea buy a WAG54G v2?
    Do you know any good alternative?

    It works, but I'm very disapointed by Linksys...
    The customer support is poor, not capable to handle efficiently bug reports, enhancements, quick RMA, etc.

    I regret now my choice and may be a Netgear DG834G would have been better...

    The WAG54G is a good unit "if" it comes with firmware 1.01.6. Being that all some people have to say about the unit is bad, I and a few others can say nothing but good. So, the difference most likely is in the firmware version it comes with when you buy one. I let someone borrow my WAG54G (which luckily came with 1.01.6) and I check on it daily. It has "not" dropped connection once, nor has the user stated he's been unable to connect at any time.

    Being that I don't have it in front of my right now, I don't know what the exact version is. I'll ask him to check the box and I'll let you know.

    The Wag54v1 is a piece of shit but V2 is quite decent although it lacks ad blocking abilities and an advance firewall. Not perfect but it has the ability to become perfect!

    Yes, Buy Belkin ADSL D5F7663uk4, it has WDS, and has better coverage than WAG54G V2, beside it works with linksys Range Expander WREG54G while WAG54G V2 doesn't, isn't funny?

    Beside Belkin has Range Extender works smoothly which is Belkin Range Extender Model 7130.

    You'll enjoy the Belkin power!

    PS: I have both WAG54GUK V2 and Belkin D5F7663uk4 now, I kept the linksysy WAG54G V2 as backup till they fix the WDS issue.

    Good luck,

    Yesterday I thought... "and if I buy a WAG354G?"...
    What do you say about this model? The only difference is the external antenna?

    From my viewpoint, with Linksys, the only one model to buy is the WRT54G or GS... the others forget them...
