    Could anyone confirm with their own experiences if the WRT54G series routers will function with 2 different antennas at the same time?

    Preferably in a situation such as this: Directional/Omni antenna mounted outside for long distance link, while using the stock antenna for clients inside.

    I guess you'll have to test Steve.

    You know, although I told you that my setup works like that, I'm not so sure any more. My setup still works, but I seem to start losing packets when traffic is high inside and on the long range link, while no packets are lost with low traffic. It seems therefore, IMO, that the diversity switching takes place over seconds, and not over milliseconds as I thought.
