Hello. I live in a 3 floor house of about 2000 sq. ft. On the top floor at the West end of the house there is a WRT54G running hyper 2.1b1 thibor 15c. In the basement on the East end of the house, I'm using an Intel wireless network card. I was getting between Very Low to Good ratings at under 24mb/s with Linksys firmware. I upgraded to hyperwrt and boosted the power to 100%. Now I'm almost always in the Very Good rating between 24 and 54mb/s. The problem I have, is that usually at least 2 or 3 times a day I'm losing my connection for arbitrary amounts of time (anywhere from 5 seconds to 2 hours). So my question is that if my connection is so strong, how come it cuts out so often? Please let me know if you need any more info. TIA for replies.
