    i've had it to the back teeth with my WAG54G. After correspondence with Linksys they have agreed that the problems i'm having are 'unusual' and i can have a replacement.

    I have convinced them and the store i bought it from 6 months ago to let me get a replacement in store rather than wait to send it back to linksys.

    Now they don't do the WAG54G v1.2 any more the next one up that would cost me 10 GBP to get is the WAG354G..my question..is that any good.

    The WAG54G was 69 GBP with pcmcia card included. The WAG354G is 79 gbp (but they are not getting my pc card back )..

    what do yo think ?

    In France, the WAG354G is cheaper than the WAG54G !
    It's also less powerful (no VPN server, no external antenna, etc.).
    The WAG54G 1.2 is the only one Linksys gateway supporting WDS to bridge or repeat the wireless signal.

    From my viewpoint, it's not a good deal !

    ok thanks for that..

    now i'll change my question a little..

    what would be a good replacement for the 54g router.

    My laptop uses the WPC54g card.

    If you do decide to go for the WAG354G, you might be better to get it from PC World. They have the WGKPC354G, which is a WAG354G with a free PCMCIA 54g adapter for £79.

    Alternatively, I know many people who use the DG834G with no issues whatsoever.

    I agree with Kraven, if you need a gateway don't buy Linksys.

    An other choice could be to buy a WRT54G (v3.1 or 4 but not 5) and plug on it a basic modem (or your WAG in "Bridge Only" mode)...
