    I would like to know which will be the better for tomato between my Buffalo WHR HP 54 and my WRT54GL 1.1.

    The Buffalo got an amp for wifi and i'm sharing mine with some neighbors and i don't really want to lose distance. On the linksys there's two visible antenna which i'm able to manage for in/outcoming.
    I have to make a choice, i'll give one of my router to a friend of mine as i don't need to have both of them (the linksys was a gift at work as there's going to gigabits).

    the WRT antenna just unscrew and there are heaps of high gain antenna you could replace them with off ebay like these: http://cgi.ebay.com/Linksys-HGA7T-H...5|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1318|301:1|293:1|294:50

    assuming you're in the US, but you get the idea, ebay uk etc. also have plenty of them.

    if you're sharing with a neighbour, you might even want to consider something a little more directional between you if your signal isn't great, but it will depend on distance.

    I'm not but thanks for the advice. I'll keep the linksys even if I prefer the Buffalo because i'll be easier if I want to buy Reverse TNC antenna. :tongue:

    For those whom concern.

    I'll keep the Buffalo.

    I bought the gain antenna and make some network stumbler on channel 1/6/11 in G only and B only (didn't touch the transmit power) and the results were quite the same as my buffalo (which is smaller). I found an extra gain antenna for the Buffalo and after a little DYI to make it fit in the plastic it's even better than the WRT with 7dBi antennas.

    Linksys good bye, Buffalo welcome back. :)
