Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
When I have a neighbor willing to let me share his wireless network, the signal isn't strong enough where I have my computer. I've heard there are some routers you can configure as a relay, that aren't too expensive. I'd like to find a router with detachable antennas that has good range for connection to a wireless network, and at least two LAN ports, so I can wire it to my two computers, and network between them as well. I don't need a wireless connection between the router and my computers, as they rarely move.
Can you suggest a brand and model (other than Buffalo's, which are no longer available) that would be good for this?
Linksys WRT54GL with DD-WRT firmware. Now, DD-WRT will void the warranty, but it has been incredible for my uses when configuring WDS. A the WRT54GS has also been said to be an excellent router, but I cannot say.

I would also recommend a WRT54GL with DD-WRT firmware. Since I own one, I can confirm that's it's a very stable and flexible router. Flashed with DD-WRT firmware (BTW, on the GL, flashing with DD-WRT does not void the warranty because the Linksys firmware it comes with is opensource anyhow), this router if very customizable I use it as a server and internet sharing solution, though I have my own high speed internet ADSL modem hooked up to the WAN port, so I don't get internet through a wireless connection like you need to do.
