I upgraded from stock linksys firmware to tomato firmware, boosted the x-mit power, and found an empty channel. The problem is, the wireless quality is worse than it was when I had the linksys firmware (poor signal, less than 24mbps connection). With the linksys firmware, I usually had a good/excellent signal with a 48mbps - 54mbps connection. This same thing happened to me with dd-wrt. Anyone know how to fix this? I really like the tomato UI, but if I can't get a good connection, then I find it pointless.
