I didn't get a reply to this the first time, so, I try again.

I've been roaming the countryside and detecting access points with my 
770 and it occurs to me that a directional antenna would be useful.  
Any one have suggestions on connecting an external antenna?  Or maybe a 
reflector that would increase signal strength and still allow physical 
access to the 770?

I haven't had much time to sit down and play with my 770, so all the 
questions below are still outstanding.  Though I've resolved to flash 
to the new image.  When time allows.

Someone asked about installing packages; I've been downloading to an 
internet connected computer, then copying via USB over to the 770's 
RSMMC card, then installing from the memory card.  Is that a reasonable 
or best way?  If I ever get to the point where I can SSH into my 770, 
then it might be more convenient to download directly to the 770.
