wrt54g strange signal strength

    I don't get it.

    I just "upgraded" from an evil dlink wireless hub, and even with the HyperWRT firmware, my signal strength is not was it used to be. Sitting 10 feet from the WRT, I have (seemingly) a poor link. If I walk 30 feet away, I drop down to 11Mbps...

    Any ideas? I don't see why the d-link performed so much better... or why the boost to 84mW wouldn't outperform it by far...

    I read some crazy claims about some firmwares with an 8x increase in power. If it would help, I'd open the router and slap fans and heatsyncs everywhere. My ultimate goal is to provide free access for this entire (or a portion of) small town.

    Anyhow, help? ;)

    Thanks

    maybe there is interference from the dlink router.
