Anybody know what base station provides the greatest WiFi range? I want it for my post-MWSF iBook purchase, and I want to have as much room to move as possible. I have seen specs for various models from non-Apple manufacturers, does anyone use one?

I use a Linksys BEFW11S4 v.2 with my iBook. It works great and cost about $100. I haven't done any formal tests of the range, but I can get a good signal from across the house through several walls. Check out Linksys.com.

I use a D-Link 614+ that I am very happy with, but I can't tell you how good the range is since my apartment is small. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the major vendors, though - they are supposed to have ranges of 100+ feet indoors and up to 300ft. outdoors.
