About 2-3 months ago I got an Asus WL-520GU, and it has
worked well so far.  It is set up with little or no tweaking (lazy guy)
and worked well out of the box.  According to the forums, it seems to
have good compatibility with DD-WRT software and has builtin a,b,g
WiFi.  Around 40 bucks at New egg.

Good luck, HH
