Look on the bottom of your router, on the sticker that has your s/n
and mac address, it should have you hardware version. (WRTG54g vx.x)

If your version is 2.2 or greater you will probably have to subscibe
to for $20/yr and use the Alchemy release as I have. If
your version is 2.0 or lower then you should be able to load the older
versions like Satori(available without subscription) or openwrt(only
supports through v2.0)

The signal power increase does work, but so do better antennas
