http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-WRT54G-Wireless-G-Router/dp/B00007KDVI would be the router I'd recomend

http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=linksys+g+access+point&cid=11637259245834031999&sa=title#ps-sellers would be the access point


With that budget..... I'd set the router up on channel 11 & run patch cables to the access points in different parts of the house.

N mode is better but even good router is not enough to get coverage for wireless signal, you should have better setup:

Cisco products have always given me the best combination of range and throughput. Might be able to find this product cheaper elsewhere and if you find you need 2 of them to give you the coverage you require then that puts you just above the $300 mark.

Sorry I misread your original question. Cisco does make wireless routers as well but the price rises quite a bit. See here for a 802.11N based or here for a 802.11G based. Actually the G based is not that bad price wise.
On that note though you could go with the WRT54G that Wantabe2 suggested  if the first post as a starting point and then this  as a quick and dirty way to extend and fill in any dead spots
