Hey everyone. My sister (through my mom as proxy) was bitching that she doesn't get wireless from the second floor, to the basement. Yes, she's that dumb, but that's another story for another day. Currently they've got wireless running from the Verizon FiOS router. It's already turned up to 100% power. And there are tiny (2-3") antennae already on there. So, either they want me to extend the network with another, same model FiOS router (from previous residence; I have no idea why they didn't just hook up the old one to the new address). I suggested otherwise, with a smaller, but better router (WRT54G). I found one (a GL, actually) for shipping (such a nice guy!). I promptly slapped Tomato Toastman on there, and went to work reconfiguring it. I have since swapped out the GL for my Gv4, but the setup is basically the same. Now comes the hard part. How do I set this up with minimum hassle for my mother, should she need to get into the router? Let's say I just turn wireless off on the Actiontec (FiOS router), and plug the 54G into one of the LAN ports. I assume it has to be in the same subnet (192.168.1.x), and obviously static, and not int he DHCP pool (I think that's set way too high, too, but another problem), and voila? Also, regarding antenna alignment. I understand these are omnidirectional, however, it being basically at the top of the house, and we want some signal all the way to the concrete-encased basement (only the 'roof' of it is not), how should I position the antennae? Relative to a level table, should the antennae be pointed up, down, split (left points left, right points right)? Should there be diagramming or extra information, please feel free to demand it!
