Extending signal strength of a Linksys WRT54G router

To extend the signal strength of a Linksys WRT54G router (all versions excluding v8 – they no longer let you replace the antenna) you can use this adapter & antenna combination:

Ideally you would also install DD-WRT and boost the power setting up from 75mW or whatever the default it. 110mW tends to be a safe number.

If you are starting from scratch, or have extra funds, I would recommend using the Buffalo WHR-HP-G300N. You can use the same 9dBI antenna without the adapter.
