Hey guys,

Can anyone tell me what the maximum possible range of a router (802.11 b/g) is? And by that i dont mean the ones you normally buy for home use, but the ones that could be used for heavy duty industrial usage. Im essentially looking for something that could : 
- support a lot of multiple connections
- have a massive range
Im a telecomm student researching into wireless communication, hence any information at all would help...

Thanks

It basically depends on the amount of power you put the signal out with, ie check this out from DSE http://www.dse.co.nz/cgi-bin/dse.storefront/44e6fa630c774bbc273fc0a87f99075a/Product/View/XH8348, to boost your off the shelf wireless routers.

An amplifier will only help clients hear you, but will not help them get traffic back in. Before you jump into putting a amplifier on try increasing range with antennas, an antennas gain is reciprocal, ie it applies to both the outbound and inbound circuit. A 12dB gain antenna can increase the range by 3-4times over a standard antenna. Hint buy AP with connectors on the Antenna circuit so allowing higher gain antennas to be deployed.
