Help me find housing in Rio de Janeiro!

I'm a student and will be staying in Rio de Janeiro for 1.5 months this summer and need to find an apartment! What are good ways to find a decent apartment (or room in a shared apartment) in Rio without being gouged?

I'll be staying for about 45 days and very flexible about location. All I need is a simple room. My only requirement is internet, as i need to do work while I'm there. I'm happy to not be in the Zona Sul (ipanema, copacabana, etc), and in fact would prefer somewhere interesting like Lapa or Santa Teresa. Do you have any tips on websites or bulletin boards to look at? Most leads I've found seem to be geared towards wealthy vacationers and charge a fortune. Obrigado!
