Is there something about the Linksys routers that will offer better coverage through the whole house?
Changing the transmit power.... is that safe? I mean, not just for the router itself, but interference-wise? Will it make wireless phones screw up?Oh yes, and more! With the linksys routers I have + DD-WRT, I can get to my Wifi from halfway down the block! With DD-WRT, you can change the TX (Transmit) power to whatever you want (keep it below 70 if you know what's best for you )
Right here I have my WRT54GS, as my main router on my desk. Downstairs and across the house, I have my WRT54G, which is set up as a Repeater Bridge, so that the downstairs computer is connected like;
WRT54GS --> Wireless Air --> WRT54G --> Downstairs computer via ethernet
But that's just my geekyness at work; plus I have two routers. But since it's a repeater bridge, it boosts the signal of my WiFi network, which is how my SSID can be seen for so far. (I use 65mW TX Power on my routers)
The antenna is included. We also have bigger and more powerful units that put out an even greater signal. The one I listed is just the cheapest one we sell... it's great for in home use.What can you do with DD-WRT anyway?
The EnGenius router looks nice. It even has a removable antenna. That would involve also buying an antenna though. Is it just a standard G router?
Don't be afraid to ask questions; that's something that I love doing, answering them.Does DD-WRT work on the WRT54G2? And is that router any good? It seems to have internal antennas or something like that.
I could have got the WRT54G today, but I want the WRT54GS for speedbooster (which they didn't have). Is Speedbooster worthwhile? ... or should I have just bought the one I saw?
Is MIMO unnecessary if I'm going to get a Linksys and use DD-WRT?
WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router (Compatible with Linux)
What is that router? Why wouldn't it be compatible with Linux? What's so special about it? (not that it matters cause I haven't been using Linux much anyway) It seems the same as the WRT54G.
And.... WTF is this?

How about this one?
Linksys WRT100 RangePlus Wireless G Broadband Router with MIMO
(sorry for asking so many questions)
Is that the same as the TX power thing....?100mW Output Power
I have a lynksys myself. From what a very smart computer guy friend of mine told me, the lynksys series are definitely one of the best.
One of the best or not still, the router always gets some sort of error eventually however, thats the hassle of havin' a wireless router.
I've got and would recommend a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. Mine is a fairly old one at this point (from a few years back) and it's pretty solid. I got this specific brand/model of wifi router for a couple main resons:I've heard rumors that those routers aren't as good as they used to be. Haven't actually used one myself though.
I need a new router because mine sucks. It sometimes screws up a few times a day and limits some of the settings I can change (can't set MTU past 1454). It was cheap though, so I shouldn't have expected any better. But anyway, I want to get a new one sometime relatively soon. What's better.... the pre-N routers or some G router with MIMO? Or something else?
I can heartily second that.I would prefer a linksys WRT54G or WRT54g with booster, i have owned one for two yrs and it has not failed me yet.
