ASUS Wireless-N Router and Repeater

I just bought this handy little device, and I couldn't be happier. I've bought D-Link and Linksys in the past, and they've always managed to introduce some annoying complexity that I shouldn't have to deal with. But the ASUS was plug-and-play. I'm using it as a repeater and as a bridged physical switch. I plugged it in, turned it on, pressed the red button on the back and the corresponding button on my primary router, and then plugged my TiVo into the back. Boom, all set.

My signal strength on my Droid is now much better when I'm on the second floor, and Netflix has stopped stuttering. All is well with the world.

A shout-out to the Micro Center sales guy that pointed me at this device. You made my day.
