Today I downloaded the EeeAP asus_range_maximizer using the Add/Remover Application and was wondering how is this program/application used and how it works.  Thanks.

Yep, I got this, too.  Have no idea what it does.  When you run it it seems to search to search for some hardware that I haven't got.  Something to do with the mysterious 3G card?  Have no idea...

Could this be an app that allows two eee PC's to communicate on a AdHoc like network?

Some 600 users have seen the question, but we do not yet have a clear response. Any offers please?

I went to the software update site with my wife's eee pc today and the eeeAP ASUS Range Maximizer is no longer being offered as an installation.

Edit - Well, after I logged onto software update about four additional times the update did appear plus an additional one for internet radio. Not sure why updates didn't appear on earlier log ins.

Doesn't anyone from Asus read these messages? Surely they will know what the software is for!

Reports from users on the EeeUser Forum (http://forum.eeeuser.com/index.php) suggest that this piece of software boosted 'obvious' WiFi signals while at the same time diminishing lesser ones. Consensus seemed to be that's all well and good, but what if you want to connect to the (now) weaker one?

Yet another ASUS update I gave a pass to.

ASUS would do well to include more useful software in its repo (GIMP, etc) and fewer dodgy patches (see this Range Maximizer and SCIM as examples)....

John, based on the message I have to "Agree" with before I create a new forum topic or reply to current ones, I would say that "no, they don't follow this board."

Here is the first line....
"As this is an open user to user based discussion forum, there is no ASUS engineers online to provide direct support via this forum."

This is the direct quote.  The grammatical error in the verb tense is theirs, not mine.  :-P
