    They claim the power can be raised with a non-standard
    firmware, although most sites recommend using 250mW max, and using a
    fan if you put it at 400Mw.
    The firmware is from http://www.aprouter.com.br
    I have no idea if it works, but it appears to be quite
    popular.
    I was more worried about the quality of the components, some
    makes have gone very downhill. I have an ASUS-based router by my knee
    that's been working for 11 years, and a encore hub I've had to change
    3 times in the last 2 years.
    Do you have any idea on how Mw and antenna db relate to range
    ? It seems obvious to me that a 24db antenna will have more range than
    a 2db one, but there must be some kind of limit as to how much power
    it would be practical to use. And to how big an antenna can be, if you
    don't have much power.
    As far as I know, there are no legal limits to power where I
    live in Brazil.

    I confirmed this in a forum letter. Detachable antennas with
    standard connectors are always a good feature, even if it's just to
    stick a cheap 5db antenna on. My netgear WGR614v9 apparently does not
    have this "feature".
    Good. They all come with third party firmware, with all sorts
    of filtering , logging and load sharing built in here in Brazil. All
    included in the price. So a good buy.
