    I did a search of this entire forum and can't seem to find my answer. I have a WRT54G 1.1 and loaded DD-WRT v23. I was told to put the left ant. to TX and the right ant. to RX and turn the TX power up to 84mW (the max?). In my DD-WRT config menu it says "Xmit Power - (Default: 28, Range: 0 - 251mW) and is sitting @ 28. How hight should I set this to?

    Suppose you can set it to the max if you want. The help text associated with that page suggests not more than 70.

    Unless you have a strange setup leave the settings alone or boost the tx power. Using only one antenna for tx and one for RX isn't usefull unless you have antenna that would dictate that (ie directional antenna's).

    Having two antenna reduces the amount of multipath interference issues you could run into.
