The firmware is very easy to use and I just loaded a pre-built one in as 
I really have no clue how to compile things etc.

I have 2 WRT54G's currently (both with Sveafoft firmware) and to get 
them to talk to each other one has to be set to client and the other to 
AP, there is also other modes available like adhoc etc.

  I'd really love to have just on AP with one of the diverse antenna

Not sure if this can be done, but you can specify right/left/auto for 
the antenna, you can even turn the power up if you want.

The new firmware is capable of doing heaps of stuff and apparently you 
can even SSH into the ones with newer firmware.
