You could have done that 18 months ago. But wait a bit longer. There's an issue with the watchdog timer that they're not going to fix with stand-alone devices (lwapp is fixed) until October. Unless you call TAC and get the beta firmware.

Said issue makes the AP reboot every 12-18 hours. The beta firmware also seems to make streaming media to a PS/3 work MUCH MUCH better, too.

But when you do upgrade, look forward to ~100+Mbps wireless connections from it.

I pulled files from a Mac Pro with RAID5 to my Vaio laptop at those speeds over 802.11n/5GHz.

Eh, it was certified by the WiFi alliance when I bought it Feb of 2008. That's all that matters to me. You have that little logo and it doesn't work, you've got something to go on with the vendors.

I bought the 1242AG back around 2006 and at that time N was still very early and as its a home network I decided to wait
