Cheap WAP?

I just went wireless and have wonderful signal strenght throughout my entire house... except for our game room, which is above the garage. (Only room not on the 1st floor)

I wanted to get a cheap WAP to put near that room to boost the signal strength in that part of the house. It works great until you are about half-way up the stairs, then it just poops out.

Any advice?

They prefer the term "Italian-Americans." "Goodfellas" is also an acceptable alternative.

Oh well, I ended up moving the new gateway router and using it as a wireless router, only. I'm using the old one as the gateway.

Now it works find everywhere in the house, AND outside.

Wireless networking is, by far, the coolest thing I've seen on computers in a long time.
