Boosting Signal - Transmit Power and Distance

    I've seen people say it is ok to bump up the Transit power to around 70 or so, but I've also read that will only make the signal less stable. Also read how some will input a number into the Distance/ACK Timing setting in the Admin>Wireless setting.

    I've put my Belkin N300 up to 60 on the Transmit power with no problems and it actually seem to extend my range in some corners of my home

    I'm planning to set up a repeater type router with a second loaded TomatoUSB router, but i'm not ready to do that just yet.

    Can someone help me understand if it is ideal to bump the Transmit Power, and if the Distance setting can help as well? Or if I should just leave them at the default 0?
