Hopefuly this thread will be used for any progress on an antenna mod for the WRT150N v1.1.

Despite the compatibility pages stating that only v1.0 works with dd-wrt, numerous other people have got the v1.1 version to work with dd-wrt,
including me(Tested with RC3,RC4, and RC5).
Alll which work to some extend, right now im running RC4 with no problems.

You can find a high resolution image of the router as an attachment, Im sorry its so big, but I know some of you are looking for a high resolution picture, and sometimes they are hard to come by.

Here is the area where the two antenna's are soldered.
I plan on adding a RP-SMA(I think) connector to this in about a week, and I will be posting pictures.
I'm unsure as to which connector to use. I have about an inch thick LMR-400 cable with an N-Male attached. It litterly weighs so much it pulls my laptop around, I will probably hook this up to my connector to the WRT150N in some way.

Alright this should start some discussion and pointers hopefully, i will be updating this thread in the next couple days with a detailed guide on how to take apart the WRT150, but seeing as this is the dd-wrt forums, it will only help the careful people/noobies.

I'm using my wrt150n to share with friends in the neighborhood and am interested in changing to a higher gain antenna. Could you use this cable to solder to the board or to connect to those test connectors on the board?
