I have a USB wireless network adapter that i want to overclock. I just want imoproved range. I heard of a program that regulates power to hardware to cut down on elecricity consumption. But i heard it works the other way too (to increase power to increase proformance).

Whatever you heard in relation to Wifi in relation to power is wrong.

There is a world of difference between electrical power and RF power.

Overclocking is not possible and overpowering a wi-fi adaptor will do absolutely nothing, in fact you will most likely destroy it if you over power it with electrical power. I don't know of any electrical equipment were performance can be improved by over powering it.

The RF power output of wi-fi equipment is fixed and regulated by your countries Radio Regulatory Authorities. It has to be otherwise it would be chaos.

The only way to improve the range of wi-fi is to install a more efficient antenna. Do a search on Google for hi-gain wifi antennas.

An external antenna would be better.

Opps but now I see that posted already.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
