Need wireless router with LONG range!!

At first I had a Belkin wireless G router, the area that needed to be covered was 4000-4500 sqft, the belkin did good on the ground floor but in a room on the second floor (my room) the signal quality goes down drastically, the connection gets dropped often and I have to angle my laptop in certain directions to reconnect.
So, I search online for a new wireless router and I bought the D-link 2750 U, which I thought would be sufficient, but I was wrong, it gave me the same signal quality, if not worse, in the second floor like the belkin.

So, now I'm at loss, I need a router that has a long range, budget is upto 3.5k.
also, can range extenders help?

thanks man, will probably go for this one.
also, I checked tp-link's site there are two models that look similar

TL-WR1043ND (the one you suggested)
TL-WR941ND( similar to above but doesn't have USB)
TL-WR940N (doesn't have USB, looks like the above two, and is the costliest among the three :-?)

the TL-WR941ND looks similar to TL-WR1043ND (except for usb), also its 1k cheaper. or is there something better in the TL-WR1043ND, other than the usb?

btw which router are you using?

Congrats! How is it dude? Tell me the performance and your satisfaction?

hey man thanks for the link :doublethumb: . and its really awesome. USB streaming is really good, range is much better than the dlink 2750u, but I might get a high gain antenna to cover a little more area:p (good thing this has detachable antennas), and the best part is that there have been NO connection drops, the up time is 5 days now ;)

Your welcome bro! what do you mean by USB streaming? you mean USB modem dongle internet? Are you able to download torrents with USB?

no dude I meant sharing content from an external hardisk (movies,songs etc) to different laptops in the house.....like a mini-NAS, I don't know if 3g dongles will work. and there's no inbuilt torrent software, I never understood why anyone needed that :-?
