Currently have a BEFW11. Brought home a WRT54Gv8. I did some testing at home. My BEFW11 shows around 80 outside my house, the WRT54G shows 22 at the same location, and I could not log into it! I can't even get a wireless connection at different locations in my house (while the EEFW11 shows almost 100 signal in all rooms of the house). Maybe I have a bad unit? (its going back anyway). Does the WRT54GL have a different wireless chip set? I have read several posts on other places where the Broadcom 5000 series is much better then the 4000 series, but finding a location that shows which chipset is in which router has been a PITA. Better yet, Where can I find which Wireless router is best? My requirements are as follows Support DD-WRT Removable antenna so I can run attach jumpers without opening up the case. More power. I qualify for part 97 FCC rules if needed :biggrin: This is sitting behind a checkpoint/Nokia firewall, it does not really need a WAN, but it would be nice if I could get the repeater function to work while out in my RV. What should I buy?
