    I have a wrt54gx and would like to get a version 2. The vendors don't seem to know the difference so where do I buy a version 2. Can I disconnect one of the antennas and add a high gain outside antenna? Would I have to add 3? I want to send the signal 1.5 miles from land to a boat swinging at anchor. I have found a 15db omni antenna to buy for the boat. I just need a usb notebook adapter with a external antenna connection. I can go 1000' now with a version 1 to my wpc54gx notebook adapter but would like to go farther. There are 3 of us boats that would like to do this. anyone got any ideas? I tried an existing net gear wap hooked to the wrt54gx hooked up to a directional 9db antenna on land but it blocked the signal from the router. I need the router as there is another computer hooked up wired on the land.
    Thanks for your consideration. I am in the bahamas so getting stuff takes about 10 days.
