    Now that I have two WRT54G routers setup in a WDS, how do I know my signal strength between the two routers? I would like to position my second router in the best possible position from the first router to extend my signal. Is there a way to measure signal strength, quality, and speed without a field strength meter? Can each router report any metrics to help me? if so, can someone please help?

    There are UNIX command line level commands to determine your signal strength. I dont have the command reference in front of me here but if you telnet into your router and simply type 'wl' - it will list all the parameters for the command. There are a couple command subsets in there for reading the signal strength for the connected MAC addresses

    Unless I don't have a complete list of WL commands, I don't see anything I can use for signal strength. Any help on this?
