    Hello @ all,

    I have a little trouble with my wlan concerning signal range and transmitting power. I use WRT54G-D2 and WAP54G-DE in combination with official firmware and thought of changing to some kind of other firmware like DD-WRT or Hyper-WRT to adjust and increase transmitting power. What is best to choose?

    Thank you!

    That is going to depend on which your device will support and what you want. They are both good firmware but also are not the only ones. The best thing to do is test the ones that support your device and then decide which works best for you.

    I have used DD-WRT, HyperWRT and Tomato. HyperWRT is great if you just want to enhance the stock firmware. DD-WRT if you want to completly change the way a WRT or WAP operates. DD-WRT is loaded with aditional festures and settings. I would use Tomato if I was using the WRT as a router, DD-WRT works fine in router mode, but Tomato gives you some graphing features that DD-WRT does not have. I use my WRT as an AP only with DD-WRT.

    First of all thank you for your quick support. I am not yet very familiar with wlan configuration and only want to use WRT as router and WAP as wireless repeater to get the signal from basement to second floor. The point is that internet access doesn't seem to be very stable. Although signal strength shows to be good I constantly get disconnected from SSID. When I connect again everything seems to be working but I get access nor to www either to WRT and WAP. Only thing I can do then is to unplug WAP from current and plug again.
