That sounds like it might be a good "First Thing To Try" as, if the existing setup is sufficient but just needs adjusted, I might be able to fix things up with what I have...
On the other hand, the chance to play with some new high end hardware is pretty tempting.
OK, lemme see if I can lay it out..
I believe the DD-WRT equipped routers can be converted to straight AP mode..
The current setup is this... There are 3 DD-WRT routers (192.168.1.3, 192.168.1.4 and 192.168.1.5).
.3 is hardwired to .4 and .4 is hardwired directly into the Cable Modem/Router. They both have stock antennas...
.5 is also hardwired into the Cable Modem and has an 11dBi antenna and a stock antenna.
All three point to the 192.168.1.1 (Cable Modem) as the Gateway..
So, if I understand you correctly, your saying keep the .5 as is and set .3 and .4 as APs pointing to .5
That sounds right???
