Hello,

I want to use a E3000 in cliënt mode (together with another Wifi that would be AP).
Most of the access will be to 2.4Ghz networks. G mode.
(I use it on holidays, to have WiFi on campsites)
In order to improve reception, I would like to mode the E3000 and connect a Yagi antenna.

No the questions: as the 2,4 Ghz has 3 connections, to what connection do I connect?

If there is N networks available would 1 antenna also be sufficient? Are the 3 antenna's ever used at the same time?
So how to connect and configure?

Would it be possible to use repeater mode, with this setup? So I can carry just one device?

I have had a working setup in both client and repeater mode. Just a better signal over more distance would help.

THX!

Read the catfish thread and research Mimo. You should get a wrt54g router with removable antennas.

I have a WRT54G laying around, tried it, but its very slow, in connecting, so thats why I opted for the E3000 (more CPU). But if you think the WRT54 does a better job , I can try, with an external Yagi of course.

Understood load and clear the first time. All ready read it.

Still 1 question left: as stated
The E3000 has 3 connectors for 2.4Ghz:
1. TX/RX
2. RX
3. TX/RX

Allready been looking into MIMO, and (I think) just connecting an antenna to 1 and/or 3 would be enough. (FOR non 40Mhz purposes)
Nowhere I can find the function for 2 (RX) Neither can I find an option in DD_WRT that might be relevant,
The catfish tread is a nice one for making external antenna modes.
