Trying to expand my network!

So here is what I am trying to accomplish.
Right now I only have a DIR-655, a have computer, my PS3 and a printer connected to it wirelessly.
Only using the DIR-655 creates a few dead zones in my house. I thought about placing another router/access point and bringing a network cable from the 655 to this new device in my living room, that way I would be able to eliminate the dead zones and connect my PS3 to network using wires instead of the wireless.
I am also planning of adding a NAS to my network for backup and streaming, I had a look online and the Synology 213 so far is my pick and I also might add a WD live hub so I can stream it's content (.mkv) to multiple devices.
From my researches I found that a DAP-1522 would be a good choice, however another DIR-655 would be the exactly same price! So, which one should I go for? Other alternatives are always valid as well! I just never had problems with D-Link!
If you guys have any other idea or tips, please let me know! This is what I am trying to accomplish:
*Eliminate the dead zone
*Connect my PS3 to the network using wire
*Add a NAS (Synology 213 probably) to the network for backup
*Add a device so I can stream form my NAS (Maybe a WD Tv live hub)
