Default Repeater for use with WNR1000?

I have a WNR1000 N150 router that was installed by Comcast; it is working great but does not reach one area in my (large) home, no matter how I position it. Is there a repeater that can be used with the WNR1000 to extend the range to this one area? If not, what would be a good and reasonably inexpensive solution for me to get wireless-N that covers a wider area than the WNR1000 covers?

I don't think WNR100 has WDS support.

look at WNCE2001, WNR200RPT

Would the idea be to use one of these as a replacement for the WNR1000? Do they have a higher transmit power? ... Also, is there a wireless-N router option that has a replaceable antenna (I have a higher-range antenna but it cant be attached to the WNR1000 which has a small fixed antenna). thanks!

Great, thanks. One more question (the last one, I swear!) - I had found the Engenius ERB9250 listed as a "Universal Range Extender" that is compatible with "most wireless b/g/n routers", and gets very good reviews. Would this work with the WNR1000?
