D-Link supports longrange Wi-Fi
The latest firmware (v2.5) for the D-Link DWL-900AP+ Access Point apparently now supports variable transmit power, which is great for long range wireless links. The Access Point already supported repeating, and point-to-multipoint links. Looks like D-Link want to compete with the high end Access Points at a low end price.

The firmware is available from ftp://ftp.dlink.de/dwl900ap+/DWL-900+AP_V2.5.zip .

Confusingly, dlink appear to use different units for transmit power in the Access Point Manager and the Web Manager.

Thanks to Chuck for the info and pictures of the new firmware functionality, and to D-Link for pushing the price/feature envelope.
