RT-N56U. Insane throughput on wire and really good 5GHz performance. 2.4GHz is average/great.

Dlink DIR-655...... Best Buy should have that in stock. As fast as Wireless N plus gigabit switch ports

That's what I'm running myself. Seems like it works well.

I realize that the wrt54gl router is older teck but it's one of the most reliable router's out their and flashed with latest dd-wrt firmware makes it a formidable beast. However, not sure if Best Buy still carries it.
