    Does any body know a firmware to increase the range of this router?

    (I found an excelent firmware for my WAP54 v.3. Its like the official but has the option increase "transmit power")

    Im using the wap54 as reapeater, but when I use DD-WRt on the wrt54gs they do not connect... thats why I need the offcial firmware with a light modifications...

    Lots of posts say that increasing power also increases noise AND it's a two way conversation. Increasing the routers power helps the laptop hear the router (with the increased noise), but, doesn't help the router hear the laptop -- it takes two.

    Most suggest hi-gain or focused antennas.
