I have the following setup.
Netgear Gigabit Switch -> Gigabit N/C's for all local computers.
Netgear WG602 (802.11G) Network access point for the network.
At the other end, I have the adsl modem/router hooked upto a netgear wireless bridge.
Works great and has for over 18months.
And I also picked up 2 new WG602's for just $45au a piece
And a WG111 (usb2 802.11G) for temporary computers so I don't need to hunt around for cables/etc.
