billyblaxsta Posted July 6, 2011 Share Posted July 6, 2011 I found this interesting thread on how to increase the signal strength on the Fon: http://forums.hak5.org/index.php?showtopic=14093&st=0&p=140372&hl=range&fromsearch=1entry140372 So I edited /etc/config/wireless and changed option txpower '0' to option txpower '8'. The power (as shown by iwconfig) changed from Link Quality=55/70 Signal level=-55 dBm to Link Quality=64/70 Signal level=-46 dBm. I am wondering if any more improvement is possible? What would happen if txpower was set to (for example '12'? Also: this is a basic question but I seem to have lost the WRT GUI so I don't know what the acceptable values are for the signal strength settings. Where can I find the HTML file? Thanks.
