    Well, it is that time again. Just went through another crash on my network, and it is time to switch.

    There are many options out there, but I am quite limited (work at best buy). DLINK is no longer sold in our stores, so I can't get any of those, but if you know any other router set-up that would be good for my unique set-up that would be great.

    Overview of my current set-up.

    Brighthouse modem > DLINK DIR-628 Wireless N
    -1 Wired computer
    -6 Wireless computer

    ~300-400 feet away going through 4 concrete walls.

    > LINKSYS WRT54GS w/ DD-WRT w/ 9DBi antennas
    -2 Wireless computers
    -3 wireless gaming consoles.

    Now what I hope to do is do away with the repeater bridge for N compatibility. And then just use the repeater bridge with a dual-band router to connect my gaming devices...

    Another option would be powerlines, but I have had mixed reviews about those, and wouldnt want to get them home and then return them.

    But seriously, and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
