Best cheap Wireless router?

Hi guys.

Since my Datel/ZyDas/Atheros WifiMax USB dungle seem to don't work with any OS that is not XP and older. So, I need a new cheap WIFI router for my Nintendo DS Lite. Budget? 50$ BIG MAX.

I'm sick and tired of getting to my bro's place to get on WiFi for 2min.

So, can someone point me to a simple, cheap and best WiFi router around?

P.S I don't want any NetGear or no name.

EDIT

F- a router is hardware but also Internet related... meh. Move if needed.

Im assuming you dont want a re-certified router, so linksys makes a decent router see it here Newegg.com - LINKSYS WRT54G2 IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless-G Broadband Router - Wireless Routers

Cheap and best dont go well together but linksys makes a decent line. Im using one now.

Hope this helps

^ You make me cry ;_;
Newegg.ca - LINKSYS WRT54G2 IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless-G Broadband Router - Wireless Routers

I'm from Canada and NewEgg.com doesn't ship to Canada... I need to go .Ca to have it to be shipped in Canada.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

You want cheap? How about free?

You could reflash your existing router with dd.wrt instead of buying a new one.

I did it to my old bricked Linksys, and now it works great. Its not too hard to do... I know little about routers and yet I got it to work.

Go to the link and see if your router is one that can be converted. For the price (nothing) its worth a shot.
