Two hundred feet is a bit much, especially since the router will be in your house, so there won't be an unobstructed line of sight between your game console or computer and the wireless hub. The most popular brands are Linksys and Netgear. I think the other manufacturers are second-rate. I have a Linksys wireless-G unit in my home, and the longest straight-line run is from the router in the front room on deck one to my daughter's room in the back on the second deck, maybe 60 feet. (I'll have to calculate that.) The signal strength is good, not excellent, but the throughput is still good. I recall reading a review of a Netgear model with a long range. I read it on PCMAG.com. It got an Editor's Choice, as I recall. Don't remember the model number. I don't think it was tested at 200 feet, though. If I recall, PCMAG tests up to 150 feet. You may be too far for even the best wireless hubs or access points.
