We have the DDWRT software in our Linksys and you can have one antenna 
for receive and the other for transmit, or you can have both tx/rx. We 
had one antenna run to a dish antenna outside and another dish antenna 
at my daughters house about a block away and shared our internet 
connection with her. If you have a two story or very large house simply 
remote mount one antenna for better coverage.

You can also crank up the power to a max of about a quarter watt for 
trouble areas in your house.

Life is what happens while your busy making other plans.
