    Hi there !

    I bought a 2.4 ghz 2w amp and modified the wifi extender.
    I'm using a 8dbi antenna and i'm getting half of the range that i would without amplifier!!
    I noticed that the video is very sloppy even at close range .
    What can be wrong?

    Thanks

    Jeez ... there could be so many things bro...

    Did you test your extender mod without the amp and with antenna plugged directly into the extender connectors?

    You say 8dBi antenna ... What type?

    What is the max input rating on your 2W amp? (It is possible to overdrive those if they do not accept up to 100mW input power)

    Do you have any pictures of your setup? Any pictures of when you were doing the extender mod on the inside? (that could help the experienced guys on the forum spot any potential red flags)
