    Does the 1.1 power level increase from the original 2.07.1 ?

    Has anyone checked to see if flashing to the HyperWrt 1.1 firmware increases the transmit power compared to the original 2.07.1 ( US) firmware that comes installed in the WRT54GS router? I know all the posts say that there is an increase from the new 2.04.3 WRT54G firmware and I'm wondering if there's going to be any gain in power if I flash my GS from the original firmware?

    Stock 2.07.1 firmware VS HyperWRT 1.1 for GS

    I just did a comparison between the stock US firmware and the HyperWRT 1.1 in my WRT54GS ( US) and the signal strength and S/N are exactly the same. This is with my HP ZD7168CL laptop with Broadcom wireless built in and my Compaq 1800T with a Linksys PCMCIA wireless card installed. The HP is about 15 feet away in the same room and the 1800T is about 40 feet away with 2 walls between the router and the notebook. Not very scientific but it would seem that the power hack based on the 2.04.3 firmware provides a boost that increases the power level back to the stock level that the original firmware ( 2.07.1) that the GS has in my case. Since there's no way to load the stock 2.04.3 firmware to my GS router it would be safe to assume that in the GS model there is no power boost with the 1.1 VS the stock firmware. I hope this provides a little help in the developement of this firmware. I don't usually experiment but my interest got the best of me and I had no issues during the upgrade/downgrade process.

    It should be a bit better then stock v2.07.1, but it was actually just created because most people wanted all the v2.04.3 features on their wrt54gs.

    Any plans to provide an additional power boost over the stock GS firmware ? I really don't need the new options that the 2.04.3 firmware provides but a power boost would be nice to have.

    I made an option to control Transmit Power from 0mW to 84mW in HyperWRT v1.2

    I just submitted it for a mirror to the admin, so it should be here in a few hours. When it's available I will start a new topic about it here. 8)

    Any idea what the stock power level output is on the 'GS with the v2.07.1 software? It would be nice to know so when the new HyperWrt version is out I can experiment with increasing the level above the stock level. I'll be going on vacation Saturday for a week so I may not have time to try it out for a while.
    Thanks for all the time you've spent on this!

    It's still incomplete. They will most likely finish it in the next official firmware.
