LINKSYS WRT55AG dd-wrt overclock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've got this router at my work place and I kinda need to improve it's radious.

On DD-wrt's ip I can see that the default value for TX power is 70mw

What would be the maximun safe value to use without a headtink on the processor?
What about if I put a HS on it?

I also heard something about a value too high could make the signal even worse... so.. what can you tell me?

On my WRT54GS, I had mine set up to 120mw and it was fine. Just increase it a bit, and you will see a increase. Make sure you don't increase it too high or you will see a increase in noise.

I can't simply blindly increase it without knowing with I'm doing and what it means.

If I increase too much I can burn down the thing or distort the signal.
Besides, increasing the power too much may be useless, because I would still need to increase the receive's power to send back the signals

what's the default for the 54, 70mw too?
