    This doesn't really answer your question....but my Linksys WGA54G does *not* do WPA :-(

    I'm thinking of getting another WRT54GS (if it's an older version) or a WRT54GL and put dd-wrt on it...

    The WRT series are iirc cable broadband routers, the WGA are the adsl based ones.

    No, it's a proper cable router - the same as the WRT54GS before they started buggering about with the memory and made it difficult to put 3rd party fimware on. Buy it if you can't get hold of a pre-V4 WRT54GS

    Nope - the WGA is a Wireless Gaming Adaptor.

    Having done some investigating, it seems the Buffalo WLI3-TX1-G54 is what im after.

    RE: the Linksys, WAG is the Wireless ADSL Gateway, WGA is the Wireless Gaming Adapter. Too similar to me!

    Ah yes I forgot about them.
    Can you specifiy which router you get? Or do they only offer the Linksys? (which I think is the best).

    You know you have to keep your wireless network open?

    Very interested to hear how you get on - please keep me (us!) posted :-)

    Fon are giving out Linksys wrt54gl routers in europe. wrt54gs in the US.

    Bear in mind the lan and wlan have been seperated to stop sharers loging onto your router and browsing your shared folders, which unfortunately means the wlan connection is internet only. You have to use your fon username/password to use the wlan, which connects to a radius server at FON.

    I'd say buy one, give it a couple of months, and wait till they go bankrupt, then you can do what you want with the router without them threatening you with additional charges.

    Incidentally, if you didn't pay by credit card, how can they get anything off you?

    Take a look at the Fon forums. Talk about a shambles.

    I didnt pay by credit card and I used an address which i've moved out of... I have registered the router within the 30 days, which as far as i can tell is all they ask you to do.


    As soon as i can find the Advanced firmware for Fon, ill download it thus having a backup. And flash to whatever.. dd-wrt or somethin
