It looks like a regular router. But inside, it's got the most powerful antenna the FCC will allow. Thinkgeek claims that the Extreme Range Wifi Router will reach a quarter of a mile.
Maybe you don't need that in your 200 square foot apartment, but we've had signal problems before, even in small spaces.

However, it's not the cheapest solution, at $285, but who could put a pricetag on that much power?
