Should I ditch Buffalo Repeater kit for two WRT54GS's?

    I just purchased a WRB2-G54K Buffalo router/repeater kit. Basically my goal was to fill a large house with a single SSID that would not cause any IP address change when moving from one side of the house to the other.

    It seems to achieve that goal, but performance is not so great. Looking at some CNET reviews, I noticed that the WRT54GS has very good performance. I was wondering if anyone has experience using two WRT54GS routers with hacked firmware in repeater mode, and if so, what kind of performance they are seeing. The numbers I am getting from the Buffalo kit, in G-Only mode with WDS repeating enabled, range from 500KB/s to 1500KB/s.

    If someone can confirm that the WRT54GS performs better than this in repeater mode, I will return the Buffalo kit for a refund and pick up a pair of WRT54GS's.
