Default New monitor and bridge?

I want to move my PCs up to my room instead of having them on the family KVM switch here in the family room.

I was looking for any suggestions on a nice LCD monitor (widescreen) between 19 and 22 inches, it'd be nice to keep it under 150$

Also, I need a wireless AP or a bridge to connect to my switch upstairs that way I can have wired and better wireless in my room and not have to put a wireless NIC in every one of my computers, and that I'm looking to spend about 100, I was looking at netgear, but I'm not sure exactly what is good or not, I know that my router here in the basement is broadcasting at 108Mbps.


I have products in mind of course, I was just wondering if you guys have any suggestions that might save me some money


Any suggestions are welcome

It's hard to find a widescreen monitor of that size under $150.

The cheapest widescreen at newegg is this 17":
Newegg.com - Hanns·G HW-173DBB Black 17" 8ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 500:1 - Retail

The cheapest good, widescreen 19", I could find:
Newegg.com - Hanns·G HW-191APB Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built in Speakers - Retail
