Default help needed

i need to replace my wireless router(meraki brand) with a new system.
the meraki died.
i use this system for email and web surfing.
the router needs to have a range of 150 feet outdoors.
my internet service is DSL at 1.5m/sec from my local telco.
i would like to hear from other with similar requirements.
recommendations also welcome if accompanied by "facts"
please reply to:

what does the meraki not do? Perhaps the hardware isn't faulty?
Frequently, this is the case.


150 ft. outdoor with line of sight, near-line-of-sight: most any 802.11g/n WiFi router will do, assuming the user device is works properly. At lower speeds, still greater than your ISP's low 1.5Mbps speed, the range will be double or more, depending on line of sight conditions.

An outdoor WiFi device should be something packaged for outdoor weather. Often, it's an Access Point (AP) that connects by cat5 cable to an indoor commonplace WiFi router. Such an AP can be found on eBay from Engenius, among others. About $75.
