    300% is just a marketing thing. Well, try it and let me know if it still 300% capable.
    Just boost output power to 50 mW and enjoy.

    300% increase means volume coverage increase and not distance. Distance increase is claimed as 30% when reading Broadcom specs. I think that reference antenna is dipole.

    Actually they've increased 802.11g sensitivity (i.e. it would negotiate higher speed - "coverage") and bundled new power amplifier, which is capable of doing 80 mW (19dB) transmission.
