Closing thoughts

Buffalo Tech was kind enough to provide me with two pre-release WLA2-54G's, so I hope that some of the performance issues I found will be addressed before the product hits the shelves in a few weeks.

What won't be fixed, though, is its inability to connect to higher gain antennas. I think Buffalo Tech is missing the boat on this one, since with its small size and POE support, it could be put into a waterproof box and stuck to the back of a panel antenna for medium range applications or clamped to the mast of a yagi or parabolic for longer-range shots. Just think of the possibilities!

That said, I found the WLA2-G54 to have a lot of features packed into such a tiny package. I just hope Buffalo Tech does something with the name so that buyers in search of a very flexible 802.11b/g Access Point that also supports WDS-based bridging and repeating don't pass it by!
