    Thank you, Pinazinho!

    Can someone please give me a second confirmation this works on a WAP54G (EU) v3.1?
    (I just bought one 2 days ago and don't want to brick it just yet!)

    upgrade firmware WAP54G v3.1 with HyperWap

    Pleas help me.
    I upgrade WAP54G hardware v3.1 with HyperWAP v1 and then it hang
    only red LED on power light and it doesn't work. I can't enter to config it even after reset...actuall the reset button can't work.
    I think it's because I didn't turn off Downgrade Header (at first I didn't understand the description manual)
    How can I get it back?

    Only 84 instead of 100

    Hmmm, this is only 84mW. I had one which did 100mW!
    But thanks anyway for the latest firmware!

    From what country are you guys?
    I live in Belgium (Europe) and here are no hardware versions v3.1 !!!

    The firmware is not new and is NOT v3.1 as the subject say it is.
    It's firmware v3.08 with a power hack.

    The other hacked firmware does not display 1 to 84mw it displays it in 1 to 100% and that 100 does not mean you wil have 100 milliwatts it just says that it is in full power and that is it maximum 84mw.

    Please write back if i'm wrong.

    Working well here

    I have two wap54gs operating as a bridge. I was able to use this firmware to increase my power output and see a noticeable reduction in ping times and packet loss. Previously i was "operating" with close to 30% packet loss- now, zero. Seems to work great for me.

    WAP54G V3.1 Firmware For Increasing Transmit Power

    I purchased 2 WAP54G v.3.1 access points in central California, USA this week. While setting one of them up I came across the power level control selection in the help menu. When I looked at the access point wireless menu the option was not availiable, tey it was in te help section of the AP.. I contacted linksys help and they told me to update the firmware to their latest on their site. The only one availiable was for the v3.0 as the latest availiable. I up graded the firmware as they suggested and guess what my AP now has v3.0 firmware and still no option to set the AP power level to the optum level for my needs.

    Anyone know of a stable aftermarket firmware for the AP that has this power control option? The AP currently is putting out a whole -50 to -55dbm, but the advertised power rating is 13 to 16dbm.

    I have looked at many sites and there are so many different sites that I am at a total loss on what firmware to use.
