Checkout the Easy Tomato and the Asus RT N16. I don't have the link handy (on 
a plane), but my browser history has a link to the blog article I wrote about 


But I will echo Michael. I ran a 400 ft wireless G connection between my house 
and a neighbor's. It worked for browsing, but couldn't handle streaming video 
or phone calls. Speed was fine, but it was jittery and had a lot of loss. That 
was done with line-of-site and directional antennas.

Good luck,
