Wi-fi

Hey guys. Were currently messing aound with the wireless router trying to see if we can get better reception in corners of our house.
I was wondering:
1-If anyone has any hints at what some of the stuff in the router does and if it could be changed to make the range better.
2-If anyone has tried add on antennas and has recomendations.

We have a Linksys Befw11s4 router

You could try playing with the angles of the antennae. A tip, dont put then perpendicular to each other, that gives you the worst (and best) reception due to the way the waves hit each other.

Radioshack.com sells a pair of 5.5dbi gain linksys specific router anntenas. they are over twice as powerful as the ones that come with the router.

also you should hook up your router to your tv antenna (its fun, trust me) if you have one. you know those giant ones on the roofs of houses. doesnt get as much range as you may hope but you can go further outdoors.

there are also some powered in home and out door antennas you can purchase with prices ranging from small puppies to a pure breed rotwriller.

SO like which ways should they point. How much are those 5.5s?
