Linksys: HGA7T - High Gain Antenna Kit for TNC Connectors

Link: http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=33&scid=38&prid=643

Since I switched to using the WRT54GS with Sveasoft...instead of the BEFSR81 + Netgear ME102...I've been having trouble with my WiFi connection.

Things drop to 1Mbps randomly..other times it stops completely. I have AP watchdog set, but it is kind of a strange kluge. At least I don't use channel 11, otherwise it would break the law every time the watchdog kicked in. Of course, cranking the power or changing antennas also deviates from the rules.

But, since I found out that the WRT54GS has TNC connectors and sells an antenna kit....I became torn on whether I should upgrade the antennas or go back to a standalone AP.

Since I went to all the trouble of upgrading my laptop to 802.11g, going back to the old ME102 isn't that interesting. And, compared to buying a pair of new D-Link DWL-7100AP...trying antennas seems a cheaper thing to try. So, that's what I just ordered.

Though the reason I've been looking at the DWL-7100AP is that it purports to do WDS bridging over 802.11a. Which could help ensure my neighbors don't interfere with the WiFi bridge that my home media devices (ReplayTVs, Momitsu V880N...and perhaps someday the HTPC HD-DVR I'm thinking of building) are on.

Of course, the other alternative is to let my laptops access the 802.11g WiFi bridge that I currently use. :lalala:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
