I have a Linksys WRT54GL right now, flashed with Tomato. It's OK, but the range is awful (and yes I've turned up the broadcast power) and I often have to reboot it. It also randomly decides to make my internet connection painfully slow. I actually kinda hate it now.

So what are some good wireless routers / APs? By 'good' I mean 1) reliable and 2) excellent broadcast power, not this pathetic stuff that's got less range than radio communications in the 1960s

Have a look at the Netgear WNR3500L, an inexpensive open source N router, haven't had any problems with mine.

I went with a D-Link DIR-655 when I moved into my new home. It isn't open source so you won't be dropping Tomato or DD-WRT on it but it is a solid router with great range/performance.
