    I am thinking about sharing my net connection with my neighbors and have been trying to come up with a good access point to mount to my roof. I thought the WRT54G was a good solution until a friend wrote me and said they had poor radios and suggested using a netgear or dlink instead.

    I looked around the web a bit and couldn't find anything proving that WRT54G's have poor radios and figured I would ask in here if anyone knows about this? Thanks you.

    If by poor radio you mean weak radio transmission power, then Linksys is no different from other brands like Buffalo and Apple. If I understand it correctly, radio emission is regulated by the FCC, so there is a limit on how strong its radio source can be.

    Here is a list of routers and Access Points and their radio power. The list isn't very extensive, but you can see Linksys is pretty much the same as everyone else.
