I have a cluster of PCs hat can't feasibly be connected via ethernet and I don't want to run 3 wireless clients when only one is necessary. I could get a second AirPort Extreme base and configure it for WDS, but I'm wondering if that will reduce the throughput drastically.

I used to run a WRT54G with DD-WRT in client mode to achieve this, but I want something N-flavored now. Anyone know what the best 802.11n routers are that support client mode?

Ended up buying a Linksys WRT350N v1.0 to use with DD-WRT and so far it's performance is virtually identical to a WRT54G at 50 feet straightline distance and a couple of thick walls in its way.

I think I'm going to end up using this in my basement where the XBox 360, Wii and HTPC reside, and get a second AirPort Extreme base after Macworld to use in a WDS setting.

After tweaking some settings, I've gotten the wireless throughput up to about 15 mbps, which is more than acceptable for 50 feet + walls.
