    Hi everybody,

    I had some problems at home, because my WRT54G signal didn't arrive
    with enough strength to my room (-80db or less).

    So I tried to change the antennas to HGA7T 7dbi gain antena.

    After replacing them what I realize is not only that the signal strength
    got any better, but it also got worst (-82db or -84db never better).

    Also when I got near the router it got lower (-22db instead -19db with
    the original antennas).

    I suppose I'm doing something wrong, antenna positioning, router positioning,
    but manuals didn't have any chapter called "trouble-shooting" o so.

    Any help will be greatly welcome.
    thanks in advance
