Hi! A distressing thought crossed my mind... I have a WRT54G... works fine. I download and install HyperWRT... which works like a charm. And then I boost the transmit power to the maximum reasonable value. Great... But... then what? My laptop which is at the other end of the house actually sees a stronger signal and is happy about it. It can see the WRT54G from a greater distance. Unfortunately, the transmit power of my laptop hasn't been increased... so even if I can see the WRT from a greater distance, the WRT itself can't see the laptop from that same greater distance... What have I gained? I've made my network visible from a longer distance by wardrivers... cool. What are your views on this? Does it really make sense? Gilles.
