    Silly me! After having posted question on WRT54GX, I just remembered I posted this news item about the new BroadRange chip. I think the WRT54GX (Wireless-G router with SRX) is the result.

    WRT54GX product info

    WPC54GX info

    Looks like Linksys has made a booboo by grouping the WPC54GX adapter with the rest of the routers and APs :lol:

    I guess this is similar to the Belkin F5D8230-4, although they call there's a pre N router which makes it sound like there will be a new 802.11n standard :?

    There's been talk that routers that are being called pre-N will not be certified at all as 802.11N compatible even if by some chance they are because the standards body doesn't want the same fiasco it had with all the incompatible pre-G devices.

    The firmware was released a few weeks back for the WRT54GX - are there any active discussions?

    Does anyone know the RAM and CPU Speed on this unit?

    The only real problem I have with mine is the lack of removable antennas. Makes it hard to pack and I would love to experiment with MINO using external antennas.
