Windows 7: Suggested WiFi Repeater?

Suggested WiFi Repeater?

Hey everyone.

I used to have an old wifi but it's that old the software I used to use to set it up doesn't even run under 7. This isn't really my problem though since I was pretty sure I'd have to update anyway. It's unlikely it would be able to repeat a signal from an N router let alone use anything better then WEP.

Anyway. I was looking for suggestions on getting a good repeater. I saw this one: Best Wireless Repeater | Wifi Repeaters Boosters and Range Extenders which looks pretty good. I've never used anything from Amped before though so I'm kind of tempted to go for a Netgear or something instead.

I was also considering buying a router and setting DD-WRT up but I don't know how they compare?

Cheers for any advice.

I can't say I have heard of Amped before (besides the drink...), but at work we have had good success with Hawking range extenders.

I recently fitted a TPLINK WA730RE Range extender which worked very well, was easy to set up and connected wirelessly to a router.
