Im pretty sure its letting me access the tower thats south-ish of me, maybe like half a mile away. Theres another one like 2 miles away and at a lower elevation than my house that i was connecting to before i did this. So as long as my signal isnt crap at work (which is very close to the second mentioned tower so it shouldnt be any different i assume) im happy lol. Even if the only place i have improvement is at home, im gonna consider it a success then just wait it out and hope for no long term issues
