OK guys, I sure hope someone can help me dig myself out of the hole I apparently am in. Background info - installed new WRT54GL router just before Christmas and used the Linksys firmware. Everything was working great but I needed more signal strength in the opposite side of our house (where my wife will be using her new laptop.) At best I only had 2 bars showing and at times the signal would disappear altogether. After reading I thought I would upgrade the firmware to DD-WRT so I could increase the signal power to 80 mW. I faithfully followed the information on the DD-WRT website including the much touted Peacock thread. Flashing the firmware appears to have gone as it should have but now I don't have any wireless signal but the computer that is hard wired to the router is working as it should. Reviewing the status screen for the router indicates the radio is working (wireless signal) with a signal strength of 79 mW. I have my wifes laptop sitting beside me (I'm on my desktop computer shown in my signature) and the laptop is about 3 ft from the router. Does anyone have any suggestions? If necessary, can I download the Linksys firmware and reflash it back onto my router? I've been working on this for about two days (6 hours in chat with Linksys people until they discovered I was using a third party firmware) and I would really like to get things going. Thanks for reading this long explaination and any help you can suggest.
