    I've been considering starting a WISP. All the major details aside is this router going to handle the job? Are their any firmware's that will help with this?

    I've read pages and pages but i'm just not geting anywhere. Thanks in advance.

    starting a wisp using linksys

    Linksys routers are too weak they have 60mW radios about enough power to light up one acre or so. Look for a radio that has 200mW of power. With the right location and antenna they will shine for about 4 miles. They have some good deals on ebay. Make sure you get one that does bandwith measurement, you don't wanna spend 1000+ bucks on a router and then lay down another $750 for a Bandwith Measuring Unit (BMU).

    Just cos the access point can radiate up to 4 miles doesn't mean that the client can reply back.

    It's all in the antenna design which is why a good antenna is gonna cost you $1000+ to do the job properly
