I have a WRT54GS running Tomato. I'm trying to get on a network that is available across the street from me. It is being broadcast by a large, old stone building that is literally across the street from my place. There are a few large trees in front of the building, but nothing excessive.
If I go outside and cross the street I get 2 bars. If I walk up the street about 50 metres I get 4 or 5 bars.
I would like to simply unscrew the antenna from my WRT54GS and put on a more powerful one that will allow me to get on that network. The way I envision it, this method of improving my router's range would be tidy, simple to install, and wouldn't result in signal degradation due to transmission through a cable.
But I don't know which antenna is compatible with this router (ie can be installed by just screwing it on) and which model will provide good bang for the buck.
Anyone have an idea?
I did search this forum and found a relevant thread, however all the links to recommended products are dead.
