I have purchased a Linksys WGA54G gaming adapter and was unsuccessful\nin trying to get the thing to integrate into my existing Wi-Fi network\nusing WEP.\n\nI called Linksys tech support and they were of no assistance. They\nsimply suggested that I disable WEP. After disabling WEP, the gaming\nadapter was able to communicate with the rest of my Wi-Fi network. At\nthis point, the senior tech at Linksys support wanted to close the call\nand get me off the phone. The tech said, "We can tell that the gaming\nadapter works at this point. I will go ahead and close this case. If\nyou decided to enable WEP, I can guarantee that it will work." Well,\nafter getting off the phone with tech support, I tried to re-enable WEP\nand it did not work.\n\nI finally got tired of the gaming adapter and went to exchange it for a\nnew one at Best Buy. Before the exchange, I was told to work with the\nGeek Squad (Best Buy's in-store tech arm). The Geek Squad "agent" was\nshaky at best with regards to Wi-Fi, and after some hand holding from\nme, was unable to get WEP to work with their network either - he\nconfirmed that the product either had a bug or was defective. Needless\nto say, I exchanged it for another identical piece of gear.\n\nWell, I brought it home and tried the setup again. Without WEP, it\nworked like a champ. With WEP enabled, it did not work. This time, I\ndid not want to spend another several hours dealing with it. I went\nback to Best Buy and exchanged it for the D-Link gaming adapter.\n\nI got the D-Link adapter up and running with WEP within 15 minutes of\ngetting it from my car to my house.\n\nBottom line is, the Linksys WGA54G gaming adapter SUCKS. If you are\nlooking for a gaming adapter that actually works, go for the D-Link. I\nknow that it works for sure.\n\nPlease let me know if anyone (or everyone) has experienced the same\nthink.\n\nGood luck!
