    I was hoping Tofu's latest release would help me w/my low connection issue but it hasn't. I cranked up the Transmit power to 100% but still no go. The wireless pc is only about 30-40 feet away and I even built a homemade reflector antennae but I still dont get consistent strenght. The strongest signal I received was about 26%. I did the other tweaks found on this website (ch. 11,frameburst, could't get WEP to connect. Using wpa2,etc..)
    Using a WRTG54 V4, DLink Airplus Xtreme G PCI adapter.
    Any suggestions? Not sure about the TX/RX atennae settings in the router.

    have you done anything on the PCI card end?

    do'tforget this is a two-way connection, the WRT54G transmits, but so has the PCI card as well to an extent. you could try an internal bi-directional antenna like the Dlink DWL-M60AT. i had to use this on a PCI card downstairs, without it and even with a strengthen signal from a WRT54G i still got disconnection problems, but adding the DWL-M60AT solved my problem.

    "you could try an internal bi-directional antenna like the Dlink DWL-M60AT"
