    I know I just recently bought a 350N, but I too have been having my fair share of problems with this router. It'd be a shame for this piece of hardware to go to waste, but is there a temporary fix? I was thinking of getting the GX4, but I have a couple of questions.

    I have a couple of WMP300N cards and will they have any problems with the GX4?

    I know both routers use MIMO, but I would like some clarification on the specifics on the GX4. Is there any difference??

    Would I get the same amount of throughput as opposed to the numbers the 350N is theoretically supposed to put out?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    I had contacted Linksys about the cross system compatibility of the WRTxxxN and adapters and the “SRX†family technology (WRT54GX.GX2 & GX4 and adapters). They said that each family will only see the other as a standard G device. Since I already have a complete “SRX†system in place I had decided to just wait it out until the “N†stuff is completely finalized before I buy another potential dead-ended system. I am really disappointed that Linksys did not add support for their own “to be†legacy SRX line of hardware.

    That's really unfortunate. I was pretty tempted to buy a GX4 and use taht until all the N stuff is sorted out, but I guess no dice.

    I'm really not too sure what to make of my current situation. There's so many wireless networks in my area, and it could be the cable modem causing the lack of speed on my wireless network.

    I haven't updated the firmware yet, I still have the bin file for it on a flash drive somewhere, but after reading about some problems that others have experienced, I'm pretty wary of flashing to 1.03.7.
