Linksys T-Mobile@Home Hot Spot

Specs: Blackberry, XEON/1GB
I have a customer using 2 TMobile Blackberry curves making 802.11G connections to a Linksys TMobile HotSpot at Home router. The phones are having trouble with connections sometimes, probably because it's a very large house and I measured some weak signal spots.

Is there anything special about the HotSpot router that he has to use it? Could I use a more powerful MIMO type router instead? If I need the HotSpot router, could I uplink a MIMO or some other type access point to it and have the phones connect to that and still have it work? Thanks.

Assume that I already did an Internet search.

You're are pulling my leg funny guy that you searched the internet :-)

Check this out
WRT54G-TM
The WRT54G-TM (TM stands for T-Mobile) is also called the T-Mobile "Hotspot@Home" service. It allows calls to be made via T-Mobile's GSM network or via WiFi Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA), using the same telephone and phone number (a special dual-mode phone designed for the service is required e.g. Blackberry Pearl 8120). Additionally, once a call is in progress, one may transition from WiFi to GSM (and vice versa) seamlessly, as WiFi signal comes and goes, such as when entering or exiting a home or business. A special router is not needed to use the service, but the T-Mobile branded routers are supposed to enhance the telephone's battery life. This is the only known tweak to the TM version of the firmware. The hardware appears to be like WRT54GL however has 32MB ram and 8MB flash. Upgrading to third party firmware via software is now available!. View the DD-WRT website for instructions.

Might want to consider relocating the router to best wireless effect. According to this you can use a different router. But you really need to ask why they aren't using GSM when weak wifi signal.

Spank you, Wanderer. That's not the kind of specific info I would have expected to find on Wikipedia, but I'll keep it mind for future reference. 8)
