    Has anybody heard any late-breaking news on an SRX version of the old WET54G Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge?

    Rumors have been around for a year or so now that Linksys was finally going to come out with one, to round-out their SRX hardware offerings, but I have yet to see them deliver.

    For instance, why the Devil would I want to add their pricey WMP54GX PCI adapter to my new Dell desktop, taking up not only an extra PCI slot but consuming additional System Resources, when it already has a perfectly good high-speed Ethernet adapter built in, which is exactly what the Bridge was made for?
    (By the way, the WAP54GX Wireless-G Access Point won't work for this type of application, just in case some of you were wondering)

    A new SRX Wireless Bridge is the perfect wide-area solution, since you can easily attach it to the existing Ethernet port via a long network patch cable and place it just about anywhere you want to, for maximum connectivity to both the SRX router and the computer.

    Why they have let this obvious need go unfilled this long is anybody's guess, but if any of you "insiders" out there have any news of when this long-overdue piece of equipment is due to be released, please so-inform the rest of us!

    Thanks in advance...

    A SRX version of the WET54G would be a low volume product. If you look at the product line up of a compaany like Bestbuy, you will not see the WET54G.
