    Every access point I have used with a larger antenna, we just screw 'em in. Keep in mind that the weaker wireless cards might be able to see the bigger antenna, but not transmit back to it. Generally the fringes get a wirelss bridge, which is a wireless router or access point in bridge mode to receive the strong signal and send back to it.

First off, the EOC-3220 series comes in two choices: the ones ending in EXT, which require you to add an external antenna, and the ones without, to which there is no place to add an external antenna. So there is no decision to be made in the software configuration, because it's all handled above the software's pay grade.
Other Engenius models with "either/or" antennas come with a physical switch that allows you to choose between the internal antenna and the external jack. So again, there's no software contribution.

You need an app that will display all the wifi in the area, by power and channel. I'd suspect that you are getting interference on the same channel. Try a different channel, move the antennas around, make a directional antenna, reduce the shielding between you and the router.

Poor antenna

does this happen to other wireless devices you have as well? If so, there's no problem with the wireless capability of the laptop. what you can do check the wireless broadcast of your router. usually, it is set to max or to 10. you can check it by logging in to your router. you may also want to change the wireless channel of your router. if you can give me the model of your router so i can give you steps on how to configure your router..

Signal not strong enough can I boost it

The "Wireless / Advanced" configuration window contains a setting for transmit power. Be sure it is set to 100%.
Otherwise, your only options are to replace the antenna with a booster antenna, or to add a stronger wireless router as an access point to your current setup. Using a booster antenna requires the D-Link to have a removable antenna, which it may not have -- none of the documentation calls this out as a feature.
Keep in mind that if you are trying to use this router over excessive distances, boosting the router's own power will not necessarily improve your connection, because the broadcast power of the remote PCs is also a limiting factor.

Try a different antenna configuration.
I just read an article in last weeks Micro Mart magazine.
It was very surprising how the signal strength and range can alter depending on the type and angle the antenna are set at. If there are 2 antennas, angle them at 90 degrees to each other in a V shape, also try fixing them horizontal rather than vertical.

Getting ready to replace my 2WIRE router

The solution may be as simple as placement of the router/antenna, or it may be a configuration mismatch between the MacBook and the router. 2Wire is a fairly common router used by some ISPs, the router might be configured to use IPv4 and the Mac might be configured to use IPv6 (different address schema), or the channeling might be set different (encryption setting mismatch). Since the problem seems to occur mostly with the newer computers, I would lean more toward a configuration problem, but recommend checking the antenna first (this would automatically transfer to a new router), then check the settings. Depending on the environment of the router, the time may have come to get a new one (I have seen some last many years and some last only months).

Check that the following are set the same on the router and the Mac's:
  • IP Addressing schema
  • Encryption settings
  • Channel and frequency settings

If you are going to relace your hardware, I recommend a router with MIMO technology using the 802.11g standard. As far as the 802.11n standard, keep in mind that it has not been approved and published in its final form yet, this could mean that any technology using this "pre-standard" may become obsolete and unusable overnight.

Stronger antenna

unscrew the antenna, and buy an rp-tnc connector and an n-male, then get an antenna with female n-type connector. LMR240 coax is better than RG58 for 2.4. which ever you use get the connectors to suit. Then crimp or solder them to your coax and away you go. no need for other settings ... just ssid of access point.

Type in the address of your router - you say that is set to192.168.1.254 and you will see the config page( after logging in ) for your router. This is more usually though .
