That buffalo router does look like a good deal for $50. I am partial to my new Asus RT-N56U. It is about $120, but has the 1Gb/s support which gives you almost USB 3.0 speed between computers and a nice advanced GUI. It also has excellent range and increased my wireless n connections from 52Mb/s to 150Mb/s which is the max for my wireless computers. Signal strength at the same location went from 60% to 100%. I have had 3 other routers before this one and this is by far the best I have ever had.
