    Not trying to add more to a "sticky", maybe theprez could move some of the off topic content, but if you search over at the netstumbler forums, I think there's a thread on wifi killing paint. Might be time to repaint the house.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    I take back my previous complaint about the $80 USD hawking wifi signal booster. Problem was..I was 2 close to my AP to notice any difference. While "war-sitting"..lol in my house, there is an AP that has always shown up as a 2 - 4 power level on my airodump screen. So...I opened a new airodump screen with just my 10dbi omni connected..and the APs power level is at 5. So I plug in my amp and connect my antenna to it..and lo and behold..Im reporting a constant 15-19 power level. The signal quality was a sketchy 50-85..and unstable...but now its constantly 100..seldomly dropping at all to the 90's. So it appears that it works and I am a moron. But keep in mind that I was doing this to get better signal in my house from only 1 room away..and not to "wardrive" for other peoples AP's. Whats the moral of this story?? Test it all out beforehand or else you could be taking back something that worked extremely well to begin with. This has been a learning experience for me. I just never really look for other peoples AP's because I'm not trying to hack em. Nice to know though that a product like this works so well that it could be very easily used for mischief in the wrong hands though. I mean someone could easily break into my WEP protected router from over 1000 feet away with this AMP and antenna setup I got. Now I just need to "shield" my AP from all sides except for line of site just to add an extra measure of security, and put WPA2 TKIP+AES back on my router!! But then again..I am a very paranoid individual when it comes to hackers.
    So you learnt a lesson, that's good, here's another one.

    Instead of trying to improve conditions on the client side, it would have been more wise to improve conditions from the AP side. To get adequate coverage in my house, I have 4 AP's scattered throughout. One in the detached garage, I have an WRE54G in the backroom that links to a WAP54G that's in the pantry, and then there's a WAP54G that bridges into the same WAP54G in the pantry.

    I have excellent coverage through out the entire house no matter where I go. When I get done wardriving for the day, I pull buggy into the garage and upload my data right from there instead of hauling the PC inside.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    I agree, but the device had only dual SMA connections and my AP has 2 RP-TNC antenna connectors, and I didn't have any converters to connect them to each other.

    Weird, usually Hawking comes with rp-tnc to r-sma adapters. Maybe it's just their antennas. Comp-usa should carry them.

    This one didn't, but its cool. I'm happy with it just as it is. I might go to Fry's electronics and pick up a coupler and play with it and my AP.

    Don't forget, you can take a whole bunch of 1W amps and plug them in in series to get some really killer wattage, as per Decadude.

    So it will just overload and burn out all of your amps in the series, and fry your nuts at the same time...Kool!! Who needs to pay for a vasectomy when you got free Wi-Fi radiation?

    I have gotten my hands on one of these...

    but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. I will let you know if I ever get around to it. Is this the same thing you are talking about Xploitz?

    Kinda like my coconut in the microwave experiment? I was really let down by that one. Microwave jumped a bit, but I was hoping the door would come off.
