  No, the PRIOR rebate did. 

The current rebate is good from April 1 till June 30.

Is this a good router if I'm experiencing range problem with the old WRT54GL in my house?

Perfect for me...was looking for something that would work as a wireless bridge and this apparently has the necessary capabilities.

  Maybe. That router if I remember right actually has pretty good range. This would definitely be an upgrade though to wireless-N, and if you can eliminate all B and G devices it will benefit even more. You should also consider putting inSSIDer free version on one of your computers and scanning your network. Depending on the density of your neighborhood/building, you might have lots of competing signals. I could barely get 5-10mbps throughput until I found the router was auto-selecting a main channel that had at least 3 competing signals nearby. Working through a few select channels that fit in between the crowd got me up to 50-60mbps, which is a pretty typical limit for many people on Wireless-N / 150mbps connections. The same effort will likely increase the effective range too.

  Good advice, but unfortunately inSSIDer hasn't been free since version 3.0 (Mar 2013).  If you can find it , version 2.1 still works fine.  I just used it on my laptop the other day.

Don't support Netgear, they're suing a fatwallet member for reselling a few routers below market value!
