    I have recently purchased the wrt54gs and usb54gs to upgrade my wireless b linksys kit to increase wireless speed. I have also purchased the linksys hga7t 7bi high gain antennae. My network only goes through one wall and the wireless distance is less than 10m,however the signal is always low,and whilst my wireless b network never went below excellent. I have tryed changing the firmware to get the signal power option, but the poor signal remians.
    Any ideas?

    are you using the windows WZC service or the linksys one? for connecting to the ap?

    10m there is no excuse. is it on a laptop?
    if so it may be saving power which is what my centrin laptop does...
    after the connection is up it uses the lowest possible power.

    even still check power saving modes of the connected computer.

    Poor signal Strength

    I have same wireless hardware as you except for the high gain antenna. My router is approximately 50 feet from the Adapter. I am not happy with the speed or reliability of the connection. I did turn the router 90 degrees in relation to the adapeter which gave me some improvement. I was considering the high gain antenna as a next step but with your post resusts, I may reconsider. Hope someone jumps in this thread with a solution for both of us.
