    can someone eplain the meaning of:

    RTS Threshold:
    AP Isolation:
    TX Antenna:
    RX Antenna: ?

    I have a 14dB antenna on the left connecter (when you look in front of the WRT54g)

    what should I setup?

    RTS: The range is 0-2347 bytes. Should you encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications are recommended. If a network packet is smaller than the preset RTS threshold size, the RTS/CTS mechanism will not be enabled. The Router sends Request to Send (RTS) frames to a particular receiving station and negotiates the sending of a data frame. After receiving an RTS, the wireless station responds with a Clear to Send (CTS) frame to acknowledge the right to begin transmission.

    ap isolation: this stops all file sharing on the network. it stops your clients from seeing each other

    TX Antenna: this is the left antenna if you look at it from the front

    RX Antenna:is the right antenna when looked at from the front .

    since you have the 14dB antenna on the left connecter (when you look in front of the WRT54g) you should set the RX Antenna it to the left

    Turn off Diversity?

    Others may be more conversant on this matter, but my understanding is that using the left antenna as the receive antenna increases reception gain while retaining the stock transmit gain on the stock antenna. Another option is to move the antenna to the ride side without changing the settings.

    I am concerned about the function of diversity when antennas of different gain are used. There may be no affect, but inquiring minds need to know.

    I thought RX means receiving antenna and TX = transmitting?

    This would be more logical...
    because I can set left and right in menue.

    Should I enable "frame burst" or not?

    where can I find a manual?

    btw: I have not made a hardware reset or Restore Factory Defaults after programming. Because all is working. Was this wrong?

    I think you are not right. I have set RX Antenna and TX Antenna both "right" and now I have a much better signal . That means : sending and receiving from the right antenna (if you look it from the back(where my 14dB antenna is connected))

    14DB Antenna

    calimero, What is the 14db antenna you are using?
