    Linksys WRT54G + a WRE54g if you need even more range. My WRT54g is on my top floor of my house (2nd floor) and I get good signal in my basement. I've been very happy with the range of my Linksys.

    Depending on what your looking for, you could also use cantennas on the AP or on the wireless workstation, or both.

    I'd recommend against the wrt54g because v5 sucks if ur gonna go wrt54g get wrt54gl. Thats fine because it supports linux firmware.

    I would also reccommend a WRT54G. (pre-v5) I have one in my basement and my parents get a good signal in their 2nd story bedroom. I like it a lot.

    Go linksys. Do NOT go Belkin, Cisco, D-Link, Netgear, or SMC (they're NTP spammers).

    slightly off-topic, but linksys is owned by cisco.
    Gave up messing with computers for a bit. It's just my Macbook and my iPhone. :)
