    Iwe had two WRT54GS running for about a year now, no problems or anything. The WRT's are connected together via two 24dBi grid antennas, 4.5km apart. The speed is stable at approx. 19-20Mbit, 2.3 - 2.4Mb/s.

    a couple of questions:

    Iwe been playing with the idea of swaping the routers with the new 802.11n routers from linksys (wrt300n, wrt350n etc), but Im not certain it will work. From what Iwe read the, the 802.11n uses more than one antenna to work at "full speed", meaning my grid antenna would'nt be enough. What speed will the routers operate with, having only 1 antenna connected (they will ONLY communicate with each other, no clients connected)

    Does wrt300n still use the TNC-RP connector? Iwe seen the router has 3 antennas, 2 omni's and 1 "paddle".

    The antennas on the WRT3xxn are not removable...

    Keep what you have. You have a router is stable.

    If you want to increase your bandwidth, setup 2 or 3 more routers on each side, then put a cisco switch on each side and run ether channel over all of them and trunk them.

    Kind of a hillbilly approach but I think it would work!

    try using the repeater mode instead of wds.

    Does anyone know how to workaround support for wrt300n on XP x64 pro ?
