    whats the better way to solve connectionsproblems in my house?
    my router is the WRT54g and there are 4 walls and 1 ceiling between the router and the laptop. I get a very weak signal.

    - using the WRE54g expander or

    - usind the both HGA7T antenna ?

    I would suggest you use the HGA7T anntenna and use the hyperwrt firmware to enable you to increase the power output of your WRT54G router. I have the WRE54G range expander and it is difficult to setup. It also does not support WPA-PSK, and it halves the bandwidth, since it only has one radio and antenna. It also defeats MAC address filtering, since it re-transmitts the packets with its own MAC address. You have to ahve the firmware on the WRT54G updated to at lease version 2.02.2 to enable the WRE54G to function with WDS.

    By position your WRT54G at the highest position it the room, it will increase the signal.

    1) I have the firmware 2.02.7 at the moment.

    2)What is the "hyper wrt" ? Is it a own firmware or is it a addition to the normal firmware?
    Where can I find this?

    3) what do you thing about "access points"?

    HyperWRT is based on code from Linksys and can be found at

    There hyperwrt forum at this site. If you want more information, you may want to visit the formum and the hyperwrt site.

    The latest version is based on the code from the firmware version 3.01.3

    Official HyperWRT/WAP forum is here :wink:

    Have a small forum on my site, but that one will only be used for my other (non linksys) projects.

    in the case that something is going wrong, where will I find my old firmware 2.02.7. I can't find this version on the homepage...

    Is the hyper WRT a full firmware? or only a addition?

    and somebody wrote:
    There is a way to reflash the firmware to the old firmware if you make a mistake.

    but how?

    And what is the profit of hyper WRT, because of:
    the laptop has not more power to send....
