You could also get their new SRX router, 3 times the range, and not as much a dead-zone problem

I wouldn't try to illegally hack more distance into a wireless router. FCC protects the wireless capabilities carefully, and for good reason. If you send out too much power through a wireless access point, organic things around the signal will begin to cook, much like in a microwave. That's why those technicians that service metropolitan wireless Internet systems have to be very careful, incase someone decided to hack up the power.

Actually, I disagree. The main reason that the WIFI signal doesnt travel that far, is because it isn't NEEDED to go that far. If your not a hacker or wardriver...there is NO conventional need for a 1000ft distance coverage....None whatsoever...thats another reason the frequency is so high up, its cuz it wont travel through foliage as well and disrupt or be picked up by rogue cards

I doubt wireless is high enough frequency to cook things...

The range is limited so you have to buy an more expensive router.
