Greetings, I have a Linksys WRT54GL, and patched it to the latest Tomato firmware. I have a few questions regarding boosting the transmission power on the router, and the range you might gain when using some other antennas. In september im moving to my new house that has a pretty big (read: huge) garden, and from my earlier experiences, Linksys' standard firmware wouldnt be able to cover it all. Therefore i upgraded to Tomato, and oh my! Turning up the transmission power is just a worlds difference. But several questions raises. - Does it decrease stability? - Or lifetime of the router itself? - Would I gain (even) more stability/range using a pair of HGA7T antennas? I wonder, because it seems odd to me that they lock the transmission power to 42, when you with the newest tomato can fire it up to 251? Hope someone will take their time to answer these questions // Yoc.
