Well as an example, I have 2 of the linksys routers, hacked them both with DD-WRT and run in WDS mode, one in my house, one in my in-laws garage 300 feet away, and then was able to get 4-5 bars in the airport menu of an original airport equipped ibook in their house which was about 200 feet from the router. That was running in mixed B/G mode, if you force the router to G only, signal strength just about doubles.<br><br>That's the nice thing about the DD-WRT firmware though, you can put the routers in WDS mode which lets them talk router to router and use one as an access point.<br><br>Also, my wii is on the opposite end of the house from the router, on the same floor.. but it's going through about 8 walls and the signal meter in DD-WRT is telling me 42% on the signal. <br><br>If I'd put high gain antennas on it, that would probably increase dramatically. I think the airport base has an antenna port, but I'm not sure.<br><br><br><br><br><br>Hey I'm an F'n Jerk!®
