Recommend me a wireless REPEATER with BIG range

I'm shopping around for a new wireless 802.11g repeater before Brawl comes out. You see, my Wii is situated a fair distance from my current wireless router, with a couple walls in between. I can't move them closer together, either. The connection I get now with my Wii is shoddy at best.

Can anyone recommend me a wireless 802.11g repeater with the power and range to give me a good signal on my Wii?

    You could always buy a cheap router or access point and configure it as a repeater.

    I actually have another router laying around but I don't know if it can be configured as a repeater... else I probably would.

    You will probably need to repeater.

    I mean you can probably get your new router to send a strong signal but how will the Wii send a strong signal back?

    I did some digging around but theres no way to get my extra router to act as a repeater... so I'mma have to buy one.

    Any suggestions?

    I'd just get a wrt54gl, and install dd-wrt.

    Yep, this.

    Or just a regular WRT54G, you can use the mini-ddwrt install. It has an option to set up the router as a repeater or an access point.

    Can you keep current WPA/WPA2 security policies with this?

    Yep. I have an old WRT54G (something like v2.2) and DD-WRT supports both WPA and WPA2.
