Power ?

    Has anyone checked with netstumbler if the power change to 84mW gives a better signal, because I cannot see a difference (even if I put in 1 mW)

    Should I do a full power down ?

    I'm having the same issue.

    no matter what value I put in the transmit power I get the same levels in netstumbler. what am i doing wrong?

    if you are close enough you will not notice a difference.
    so walk about 40 ft away. and then change power levels.

    one more power question

    I'm using wap54g with mustdie right now. at a distance of about 20 to 25 feet with 1 wood/drywall wall between me I get a signal level of -57 to -50 with a noise level of -91. That is with the power all the way up. Does that sound like good values. Also, I have one the linksys wireless amps if I use this with the WAP at the higher power will it get amplified more or will it make it worse? Also, does anyone know details about the linksys amp. It has two inputs and two outputs so I assumed they were seperate. But when playing around it actually appears that they are connected. For exampled. If I have the WAP on diversity and have one side unconnected and the other connected to the amp and just one antenna on the amp I have one signal level. I then connect the other side of the amp to the wap and my signal increases even though there is now antenna on that side. I've also noticed that the input/output sides on the amp might be flipped. for example, right input on amp with antenna connected to left output gives high signal, but right in on amp with ant. on right side also gives a lower output. anyone have any comments? thanks!
