Hahaha...things like DD-WRT (which I use on my LinkSys WRT54G btw) are alot different than this. Sure, you can bump up your transmit power (the default on a WRT54G is 28mW) mine is currently set @ 70mW (the highest recommended setting for many many reasons, but you can go up to 251mW I believe). But THIS is about FOCUSING that energy, as opposed to having it go 360 degrees. Vastly different concepts. Imagine boosting your tx power with this and focusing it in a specific spot = amazing.
But yea, for anyone who REALLY wants to turn up the juice, do something like DD-WRT, OpenWRT, Tomato, etc.
