Wireless Router with range limiter?

Can anyone recommend a decent router with a wireless range limiting facility, ie an option that allows you to adjust the wireless signal strength so I don't end up broadcasting beyond the bounds of my property?

Thanks

I would recommend better security on the router - I have done some work with IT security consultants on our companies wireless and they had wireless kit that could connect to very weak signals or at long distances. Theres no stopping it. If your really concerned get powerline plugs.

I can't help but wonder why you would want to do that?

As has been said before, for security, just use strong encryption. Current encryption (WPA2 with a long random key) will defeat anyone but NSA or GCHQ. (So unless you live in Maryland or Cheltenham I think it unlikely that any neighbours will have enough kit.)

As others have said, unless you live near an airport or somewhere that requires you to lower signal strength, then don't bother, just use the correct encryption and you'll be fine.
