The new openwrt kamikaze port is quite nice -- 
nice new build system etc, makes for a LOT of extra packages available.
It's worth a look.  And don't worry too much about the web interface ... 
look at a good command-line to get you through -- it'll be much easier.

As others have eluded, the most important aspect is RF .. good sensitive 
receivers with good antennas ... don't just turn up the power and expect 
to get results

btw: if anyone else may have noticed -- if you're part of FON 
(http://www.fon.com) they came out recently with a push of external 
antennas on sale .. if you have a fon router, you can get a directional 
(7db?) antenna for $2 with $5 shipping ... as oppossed to their $20 
price tag .. still, $20 is a good price for a 7db 2.4GHz antenna :-)  
Got mine yesterday and have yet to try it out ...
