    Hi everyone,

    On the market right now, what would you consider the BEST and CHEAPEST solution for my needs? We've had an old linksys since 2005, and it's chugged along well; however, the devices that we need it to work with (PS3, Apple TV, 3 laptops and ipods) are all very far apart from each other. thus, the signal isn't the greatest on the apple TV (which is a couple rooms away from the PS3, for example). as well, i wouldn't mind taking advantage of 802.11n technology!

    I know that I could just buy an airport extreme and call it a day, but to be honest that's $180 I don't feel like parting with now when I'm almost positive there has to be something (i.e. a netgear or another linksys) that can do the trick for $50. So, what do you think? it has to be fast and have great range!

    Thanks!!

    The Airport express is really nice, and in the .n-range it's actually not that expensive.

    Um, I'd consider the Airport Express double the price of the 'cheapest yet decent' N range routers. I can get a 'good' Dlink N router for half the price, which also includes 4 ethernet ports.

    However, I love the Airport Express for its simplicity.
