The $199 one. it's a little genius with an omni antenna but i haven't had to use the omni much. It's the one on the site I initially posted.

A buddy of mine swears by his Netgate. But before I put out that kind of cash I plan to see what I can do with a $40 Buffalo...

In principle, Salty Dog’s focusing reflector (Bowltenna) should work as described.
Given that it would be a virtually free experiment, I wouldn’t hesitate to try it (if I had WiFi)
If it works as needed - great.
If it doesn’t - you’ve got a nice bowl or wok.
