I'd say go with a linksys. They've never failed me or my friends. If you want to get into networking go to www.dd-wrt.com and check the list of linksys routers that will run DD-wrt. It'll make the router much better than it is, but it will also work just fine as is.

To secure you're network will be harder. You can't run encryption on your network if you want to get online with the xbox, but you can setup MAC filtering. This will make so that only PC's (and xbox) you've specificed can connect to your router.



--------

Additionally. If all you want to do is network your XBox to one PC then you could just buy a wireless card for your PC. As long as the PC and xbox aren't too far apart the PC and XBox can connect to each other this way (much cheaper since a PCI wifi card is about $15.00). The xbox will be able to stream files and get online (Live) like this. Router will give you more optioins and more room to upgrade in the future however.

Can't buy Buffalo.... there is a court injunction preventing them from selling in the US

they are the best though.
