    Hi all,

    Anyone know where I can purchase a Linksys WRT54GL near Albany, Auckland?
    It appears to have two antenna. Does this mean I can screw on an existing
    outdoor directional antenna while also supporting an internal wireless

    I have to replace a dead Linux laptop router that has a custom /sbin/route
    entry so the router may need to be fully programmable.

    Thanks for your replies to this newsgroup.

    Basically, any computer place can get them in - they are from the
    largest distributor in the country.

    And I believe yes re: the antenna, but you would be best to confirm it
    with the Linksys technical people via LiveChat first:

    Oh, and they are fantastic routers.

    I think the NZ stocks of the normal G's are still the good ones, so that should
    do you.

    And no, you cant use the 2 antennas like that.

    You could put 2 on, and then switch between which is active, but it wont let you
    have a client on each or mesh out one and have clients on the other.

    Great advice thanks Richard. With help reconfiguring my network it turned
    out I only needed a wireless access point to bridge the external network
    and my firewall. This also means two transmitters on the same device would
    be useless because other computers must connect though the firewall. If I
    ever want local wireless access I just need to install another wireless
    access point within the internal network.

    Many thanks,
