Transmit power increase?

    I'm looking to increase the range of my router without sacrificing latency or bandwidth.

    So far what I've done is set it to 84mW through tomato and bought a pair of 9dbi antennas and still waiting for them to come in.

    I think after installing those the router will not give a decent signal to the other side of the house. I've tried all the tweaks. Tin-foil, windsurfer, adjusting antennas at an angle, moving above metal objects, etc etc

    Any suggestions on increasing range?
    Also I was curious to know..
    84mW seemed to be the perfect balance for good range and good speed, but should I increase this when the new 9dbi antennas come in?

    Another question I had is that 251 is the max in tomato and also DD-WRT (due to FCC regulations), but there is a way to top over this through init commands?

    Cheers.
