	I've had good luck with Cisco Aironet gear running in repeater mode.

	I've done the cheap linksys thing as well and it just did not work
as well as using some equipment that was better designed.

	I have actually found the non-IOS software on the aironet 350/340 to 
be more usable than the IOS software.  You need to have your network be
consistent.

	You also have the obvious interference challenges with any unlicensed
deployment.
