wag54g upgrade to wag54gx2(srx200)

    Hi, I recently upgraded my wag54g to wag54gx2(srx200).
    I have a wireless network and have a wet54g in the garage to provide wireless internet to two PC's.
    The signal strenght between the wag54g and the wet54g has been ok, not great but ok. (40%)

    I was hoping that the wag54gx2 would improve this, but instead the strength is worse (20%),

    Why is this?, can I change some of the settings to make it work better?

    Pls help, as I feel I've spent £100 with no benefit.

    Thanks
    Amo

    It's A MIMO router, as far as I know you need MIMO adapters for your computers to get full benefit from it.

    No, the only ones that support MIMO are PCI/Cardbus from Linkysys at least.

    Before you go invest you could try and tweak some settings. Sometimes the culprit may be that the channel you are using is congested, so try channels 1, 6 and then 11 to see if it makes a difference.

    Is the wet54 v2 better than the wet54 v1 (which I got)?
    If I bought the v2 would I get better signal strength?

    thanks
