    I need to boost the signal strength and range, now I'm ordering 3 HGA7S for my WRT54GX. But it seems that it too costly (@53 USD) total $159. The router itself only cost $180.
    How much gain I would expect from these tiny pricey antenna? :grin:

    Can I use one 7dbi and used stock antenna for the rest?

    Not worth to buy. gain is *very* little (<5% if there is any gain :shock: ), measured with net stumbler.

    ping timeout even with 2-3 bar@54mbps.
