    Looking for some input on wireless routers, something decent, but not super expensive. Something in the $50 range, Wireless-G or N will work.

    Needs to have good signal strength (my PS3 is hooked up across the house from where the router is, about 75' away) and hopefully last longer then 8 months like my last two routers have.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I have an Linksys E2000 that I like, but it runs about $70. Wireless N and gigabit ports.

    I was looking through routers a bit earlier and I came upon this one, lots of folks gave it good reviews. Appreciate the help all. Seems I'm going to be getting my hands on this in the next week or so.

    Click on the "See Price In Cart", it is $50. I've never seen them sell the WRT54GL for more than $60.
