I'm setting up a wireless network for a friend, which consists of an older desktop, Inspiron 6400 laptop, as well as a new desktop I just built. The old desktop is in the study room which will be hardwired to the router (also in the same room). The desktop I just built is almost on the other side of the house; its on the same level, but is 4-5 rooms away, with a corridor alongside each of the rooms. Between the 4-5 rooms, on the OTHER side of the corridor (seperated by a wall) is the longue room, where the laptop will be used. Im pretty sure the walls are not brick, just gyprock. What I need is the wireless card for the desktop I built, as well as the router itself. I pretty much want full reception for all the computers, so it never drops out. The person I am doing it for was going to spend $200 on a Belkin Wireless Pre-N Router (802.11g) but its pretty old, and I am pretty sure I can get a better deal for her. I dont really have a budget, but the cheaper the better. Basically, I really dont want to spend more than $200 on the router and card, and as I said, the cheaper the better. My current router is an SMC WBR14-G, and that gives me full reception (with the Inspiron 9300 laptop) down two flights of stairs with double brick walls between...and thats only $60. (Got it two years ago on ebay for $45 posted ). Hence, something cheap and reliable should be good .
