I had a couple of 802.11b LinkSys wireless routers on the same channel and my laptops were cleanly passed from one AP to the next when movinng around the house and I consistenly had the maximum 11Mb/sec transfer rate; then I moved to LinkSys WRT54G wireless routers...
Keeping them on the same channel just caused problems and I didn't want to change channels because my neighbors are using 1 and 11 and I am using 6, so I turned off the wireless on one wireless router.
With the 802.11b wireless router, I could move from the office where the AP was located to the living room about 20 feet away and still keep 11Mb/sec transfer, but with the WRT54G, I can't move more than about 10 feet before the connection is dropped.
I added the LinkSys HGA7T 7dBi high gain antennas with no change in reliability.
FYI, I have now tested with 3 different WRT54G wireless routers and all have the same range problem when compared to their 802.11b counterparts.
Can/should I use coax to separate the antennas and place one of the antennas in the living room and another in the office?
Is there a better solution, besides scrapping LinkSys (since I have a substantial investment in equipment) and moving to Parker Vision?
