i ended up getting the wrt54g, i was at target of all places and they had them for $34.99. It seems to work for my application, the only wireless i have is my laptop, and it gets 2-3 bars even in the furthest room of my house. Now if i could just get it to work fully on my network,. I can see all my other computers from the laptop but can not see my laptop from my desktop computer. Xp pro on desktop and vista on laptop…not really a big deal just have to fiddle with it more to get it to work i guess.
