    I have a few WRT54G's in WDS mode running on Alchemy Firmware and I got 6 Airlink indoor 7dBi Omni directional antennas [good deal on $5.99 couldnt pass up].

    Anyways how should I do it; replace both factory antennas with 2 of these 7dBi's, or leave one factory antenna on and add one of the new antennas, or remove both factory antennas and just leave one of the new antennas on?

    My concern is that in the manual it looks like the front projects a better signal then the back, but if its omni it should be the same all the way around right? I was almost thinking using two of the new antennas and having one face forward and one backwards.

    THe product link is at


    and I found this image [​IMG]

    What would be the best usage of the antenna's?

    Thanks, im still confused about the antenna's.
