Fon, the Spanish company that's giving away free/super-cheap routers with the goal of creating a global Wi-Fi network, is planning to release their new Fontenna, a signal extender for their routers.

They claim the Fontenna can extend the Fon router's range by five to ten times, which ain't too shabby. Now we'll just have to wait and see if they can guarantee that the Fontenna won't melt when used. Then they'll have a winner on their hands.
