    I want to connect two networks via Wlan to share one internet connection.
    For this I used two routers Linksys WRT54GS.
    To connect the routers I need WDS, for this I made a firmwareupdate to Satori-4_0GS.
    After that I was able to get connection between the routers on short distance, but on far distance it worked verry bad.
    So I messured the output-power of the WLan. On one router I messured about 25mW, which is ok, on the other I messured less the 1mW.
    First I thought the second router is defective and I ordered two other routers - same result. So only one of four routers worked properly.
    I don't think that the three routers are defective.
    Since I have no normal WLan client I am not able to messure the WLan power with the original firmware.

    What could have happened?
    Is it possible that an internal parameter got set wrong with the firmwareupdate and deaktivated the amplifier of the WLan?
    What can I do?
    Is there a possibility to check all the parameters?
    Is there a possibility to reactivate the WLan?

    Thanks for your help
