I've looked at the maps of Ohio that Connect Ohio has put out and they are at the very least grossly optimistic. Just looking at them at first you would say that 99.5% of the state has access to broadband from more than one provider. In my county it's the same way. The map shows that most of the

What's what we normally do... I almost never run an AP at it's full power. In fact these days I never do. Someday when I get bored I'll fire up the analyzer and see if there is any difference in the signal shape between max and min power levels. marlon - Original Message - From:

The last time I did some searching on this, I figured out that many laptops are actually dual-pol. In realistic testing, I've taken the laptop to some of my vertical and horizontal AP's, turned it sideways, upside down, etc etc and really get no difference in db. Now, this is on my Dell Latitude
