    I live in Switzerland and i recently purchased a WAP5G-FR from ; However, on the linksys website it only lists the WAP54G (with no FR). Sorry for the ridicously stupid question, but what are the differences between these? Why are there two versions? Can I change it from FR to a normal (US i suppose) version, with the latest US firmware, or will this affect functionality in Europe in some way? Thanks for whoever can help me.

    Also, can someone help me with knowing what firmware I should upgrade to? Which one has the most functionality. The main features I require are disabling SSID broadcast, and being able to set a default homepage for everyone on the network (to make network messages), and being able to block things like P2P for certain users if at all possible. Then just the basics like MAC filtering etc.

    afaik the FR was for France, and was limited to 4 wireless channels though i could be wrong? does your WAP54G have 1-13 channels?

    i ordered it off the internet, and it hasn't arrived yet so I don't know. Why only 4 channels and not 13? Does this mean upgrading to the US firmware will affect functionality in some way?

    Hi ApocOne,

    I use a wap54g-fr (refer my precedent post) and i successfully can upgrade it to the latest US firmware 3.03.

    But be carefull to respect the procedure to upgrade in a first time to an other version : 1.09... depending the original firmware version you will have
