You need to use an older firmware...
`/usr/sbin/wl -i eth2 txpwr 48` is the string to be placed in the WRT54G ping test interface. Place it in, and hit ping. Your signal strength is now double, and you have successfully overclocked your router. Also, go to the advanced section on your WRT54G and enable "Frame burst." This is what netgear and several other 54G providers are calling turbo mode.
When I try this, I get the following message in the Ping window"
Invalid IP Address or Domain Nam
what am I doing wrong? could it be that I have set the router's IP address to 192.168.1.69? I did this, because i just added it onto my present BEFSR41 wired router. Any help would be appreciatted.
You can go up to 84, but that provides unstable connections. Max realistic is 68. Prepare to mod your router for that.
You have to compile a kernel outside on Linux and inject it, but you'd be better off modifying the GPLed code on Linksys's website. SeattleWireless has been working on modding the router's kernel for about 6 months, with only a little bit of success.
With the new power output, it puts it in the upper 30%. That is, 70% or so of existing WAPs have lower mW ratings.
I suggest, at this point, to get a copy of Sveasoft's Satori v4 firmware for the WRT54G.
Release 9/9/03 WRT54G v1.1 firmware
I have a v1.0 WRT54G, but ran into no problems flashing to this version.

Also, know any custom firmware for the WRT54GX4?
