Hello all, I have a weird problem with Tomato firmware. My set up is: WRT54GL v1.1 with 2 linksys hi gain antennas (7dB) located at the window. 1st laptop via wirelles in my house - signal "Excellent" or "Very Good". 2nd laptop in next house, distance cca 35 meters, signal usually "Low" or "Very low", most of time usable however connection sometimes drops. Used firmware was DD-WRT v24-sp2 which showed signal strength of 2nd laptop around -79. Ping from 1st PC to 2nd was about 3ms, packet loss during few hours was below 1% (ping -t). Now the problem: I decided to upgrade from DD-WRT to Tomato 1.28 because of great QoS capability but result was that 2nd laptop could not connect from its usual place at all. When I brought 2nd laptop into my house there was no problem with connection. After 2 days of manipulation with antennas and router position with no success I had to put back old DD-WRT and the weak client was back again. I tried to use TeddyBear modification based on ver. 1.28 with the same result as original Tomato. Question: is there any limitation in Tomato fw. for lowest acceptable signal strength ? Or what might cause this problem ? I suppose it must be in firmware cause nothing else was changed. Thank you very much for your help or advice.
