Can someone recommend a wireless router with extra range?

Large house with twists and turns, 2 story, 3500 sq ft. Current router only works in half the house.

Looking for way to solve the problem economically as possible. Booster??

Thanks all for your help.

For a house that big you really need to install another access point, no router will cover every room in a house that big.

You can mess with those wireless extenders if you want but for a house that big you need at least two access points no less. The new standard 802.11ac is out with routers and A/P's up to 1.6Gb wireless speed.

Is this a 'g' or 'N' router. An N router has a much bigger range.
