Will my WRT54G reach with new antenna - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I have a WRT54G that I plan to purchace or build a directional antenna for.
The planned link distance will be 5-6 miles.
Does the router have enough power to transmit this far?
What kind of antenna will be needed?
Datasheet says 15dB antenna by default.

I have been reccomended a 1/4 wave double biquad.
Will this work?
