$30 for a Netgear WG602v3 won in my last search.  I find their signal
quality better thatn the Linksys units I've used.  I've a few in place
that have never been rebooted since being installed in April.  I do wish
it had WPA-RADIUS support though but we're not there yet.

One note, I'd avoid picking up a router/ap combo unit (sometimes they're
actually cheaper) if you are just going to use the AP part.  At least with
the Linksys combo units I've dealt with, disabling IGMP and some other
noise isn't possible.  My mono logs were jammed with firewall messages
about blocked traffic from these units.
