you may also want to try some of the US Robotics 100 Mbps products. I bought mine from Tigerdirect.com, 40 bucks for the router post-rebate, 23 bucks for my pci card. on the other side of my house, on a different floor, through maybe 5 or 6 walls, i get a "Very Good" or "Good" signal all the time. Computer tells me it is connecting at 54 Mbps, but it is going faster than my hardwired computer ever went. When using my wireless network to transfer files directly over the wireless network, from one computer to the other, i have gotten speeds well in excess of 1 MEGABYTE per second. Excellent products.
