Yeah, dumping trash on Ebay is always fun and rewarding... heh.
I don't know about the best, but the LinkSys WMP is only 32mW if you were curious. I don't know about the WPCv3.
If you need more than one AP, carefully consider your options. HostAP won't likely work with any other APs except OpenAP stuff. There is no standard for communication of MAC information between wireless APs when a station moves and reassociates.
