Cisco, d-link, and netgear routers are my choices.

You're lucky. I wish I had Comcast (at least Verizon) here. MetroCast is an absolute ripoff. Anyways, Cisco (Linksys actually. Linksys is just a brand of Cisco but Cisco has some routers, modems, etc. under their own name instead of Linksys or Valet), D-Link (I had one but it was old and died. I've heard pretty good things about the newer ones), and the Netgear high performance section of routers. The WNDR routers (3700 standard, 3700 premium, 4000, and some others I forgot) are the absolute best.

I got this out http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124333 , although the casing and bezel on mine are black. This one works really really well for me.

Cisco E3000 is nice, WNDR-3700 from Netgear would work out well. I do like DD-WRT firmware so when I shop around I always check for compatibility there.

I just picked up a netgear WNDR3700 and my god is it amazing. I upgraded from a WRT54G and it makes a world of difference. USB storage, dual band N-class, DLNA certified, and a great UI. fantastic range, too biggrin.gif

If this is for home-use, all you need is Up to 54Mbps right? Also internal vs external antenna?
