I had a LinkSys 4-port hub/router that was satisfactory so I added
a LinkSys AP, PC card for a laptop, and USB adaptor for a desktop
in another part of the house (AP is in the office).

Setup was pretty straightforward, coverage is adequate (*very* old
house, plaster and lathe construction cuts signal badly for wireless
in general -- cell phones barely work inside -- but I can use the
laptop in the living room, or on the back patio).

So no real complaints, holler if you'd like any more specifics...
