Hiya Jason, Why not just buy ISP grade product? Then you don't have to worry about all of this. AND at 2.4 the CLIENT side isn't limited to 36 dB. It starts there with a 30 dB radio with a 6 dB antenna. For every one db of radio tx dB you drop you can go up 3 dB of antenna gain. Marlon

From what I have read they are not fully upgradeable because there are some hardware differences between the light and the normal units. I also remember reading that you have to have the advantage AP to use the light versions of SU's. Chadd -Original Message- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Hello all, Thought I'd share a bit of real world experience with the listers regarding amplifiers. We recently replaced three RF Linx amplifiers (indoor, 2.4Ghz, the non-tunable units) with three used YDI (Breezecom labeled) amplifiers. The difference was significant. Signal strength

 I will add that many of the high end rackmount server boards such as SuperMicro have standardized on some of the Intel NIC chipsets, and they have operated very well for us on our Linux servers. So I second the Intel vote. Or you can just buy NICs with Realtek chipsets from ICIntracom for
