I have two WAP54G's set up as a wireless bridge between two buildings at a church. This church sits in a lower income residential area with no outside Wi-fi activity detectable by Netstumbler running on my laptop. I've had occasional complaints from the remote building that their Internet access is slow and discovered that the connection loses about 1 in 15 pings sent across the bridge. If I get out an extension cord and get the two APs about 20 feet closer I can go ten minutes without losing a ping so I am guessing I am right on the edge of the built in power level's capability. I am about to install the HyperWAP firmware which will give me access to much greater power outputs. Given these options, is there any reason not to crank it up all the way? While I suspect that a minimal increase in power will probably get me a better connection, will I suffer if I keep going up?
