      125 High Speed Mode
      54g performance enhancement that delivers the industry's fastest wireless throughput in real-world environments. It is designed for home networks that require high-speed throughput for multimedia applications, such as sharing digital pictures. See SpeedBooster.
      SpeedBooster™
      Linksys' brand of Wi-Fi products that use Broadcom's 125 High Speed mode, which increases the throughput of an 802.11g network.
      From Broadcom Corporation - Glossary of terms.

      I suspect from this that enhanced 54g performance will only work with Linksys Speedbooster products.
