Looking for a possible explanation...

    I have a WRT54G v1.0 that I've had for a while now in the house office. I have a WET54G (yak) well over 100ft away in the house through several walls/appliances. I find that I actually get a better throughput dumbing down my wireless network to "B only" because the G radio sucks at that distance.

    My problem, like everyone else was moving from 2.02.7 to 2.04.3 and losing signal strength. Before flashing I was getting 75-85% and approx 2500-3000kbps (with additional gain antennae) and after flashing resulted in 30-40% and 750kbps.

    Avenger to the rescue! After flashing to HyperWRT, signal strength is now consistently 95-99%. However, it seems that my overall throughput is still reduced, somewhere around 1500-1800kbps.

    Is this due to the new driver? Or is the signal increase causing problems? Flashing back to 2.02.7 brings me back to the good ole days of finnicky signal strength and decent throughput.

    Any chance of tweaking the 2.02.7 driver for increased signal strength?

    Could be the new wireless driver. I will do some testing to see what the problem could be.
