Ok, I have already succesfully loaded my wrt54g v5 with the dd-wrt firmware. I have my v2.2 running hyperwrt also. Both of them are configured for WDS and my neighbor is connected to my wireless network. Here is my situation: I have a 2 story house. I have just the stock antenna's on both my wrt54g routers. The main one (v2.2) is upstairs in my office, while the secondary one is downstairs on my entertainment center for my ps2 to connect (wired to the v5 router). I need to find a way to increase signal strength to the neighbor. Right now they get approx. 40-50% signal running 802.11g. Not bad but I know I can get better. Are the 7db gain antenna's worth it? And can I just put one on each router or does both have to go on one router? I was also looking at purchasing another wrt54g and placing it in their house with a super "cantenna" on both their side and mine. Would I need 2 antenna's per router or just 1 suffice? And lastly, I could put a router in my attic (highest point of the house). But I would worry about the heat and cold. What would be the best way to do that? Leave the router in the house and just run cable to the antenna's? Also I have searched but have conflicting stories on the type of antenna connector on the wrt54g. What is that thing? r-tnc? Thanks in advance for the help.
