Default Any Tips on a Wireless Repeater?

Hi All!

I need to procure a wireless repeater for my office, but I've never had anything to do with them before.

Currently, we have a 2Wire 2700HGV-B router in one end of the office, which we can't move (several levels of provincial gov't IT hell) and ideally we'd like to throw a repeater in the middle to pick up the signal and expand it into the other end of the building. It would also be handy if there was some signal on other nearby floors, but that's not mandatory.

The building is a concrete tower, with modular metal frame & drywall walls.

Currently, I'm looking at something like this: NCIX.com - Buy EnGenius Wireless G Access Point / Repeater with Embedded Antenna 108MBPS 600MW - EAP-3660 In Canada.

Would that serve the purpose?

Thanks all!
