From customer: I have used the same signal booster on wrt54gl with excellent results: However, you must use an antenna on the booster of higher-gain than the 2-dBi antenna that comes with the booster: It should be 5dBi or more. We have compatible antennas here:

I currently have a Alfa 500mW from you… I’d like to find another solution so I can have multiple machines use it.
I’m looking at your signal boosters.
If I setup the wrt54gl in bridge mode to connect to another wrt will this signal booster provide the same power? Will the linksys wrt54gl be able to reach access points at a further distance like the alfa can?
wrt54gl connects to -> a access point 1/2 mile away to get it’s internet connection.
My local machines in the house will then connect to my wrt54gl that is in the house to get to the internet.
Please let me know if this will work. Thank You, Justin
ANSWER: Yes – this will extend the range just as you describe.Author: George Hardesty
