[Best Buy] D-Link Wireless N300 Router (DIR-615) $24.99 + tax + free ship!
It may not be the greatest device, but for $24.99(!) it would make a great wifi repeater in your home. A repeater can extend your existing wifi coverage if there is poor reception areas in your home.
Looks like DD-WRT supports this device. I plan to follow rayman575's post on this thread: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic. ... sc&start=0
The steps to install DD-WRT and configure it to run it as a repeater might be a challenge for beginners. I recommend reading the forum post (above) and judging if you feel confident. If so, it sounds like a cheap way to improve your home network!
EDIT: according to the forum post (above), some hardware revisions of this router might not be supported by DD-WRT (yet). So, YMMV. I'm still going to order mine and take a chance I can install DD-WRT.
EDIT: using this router with the stock firmware is NOT RECOMMENDED. Bad reviews regarding stability and reliability. General consensus seems to be that DD-WRT will fix these problems and make the router pretty good for use as a Repeater.
EDIT: nanodollars says: Ordered online and received the next day. For those who care, it is H/W rev I1. I installed dd-wrt without a hitch but have not tested...
EDIT: I also received H/W rev I1. This is probably the right firmware for me: ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/others/eko/BrainSl ... -dir615i1/
