You are probably going to get 1000 different opinions on this topic. I guess it depends on how much you want to spend, what kind of range you need, what kind of features you need, etc. If you just need a basic, solid, wireless router, I'd go with whatever NAME BRAND is on sale. If you don't mind rebates, there is usually a pretty good/cheap one at Compusa on any given week. Stick with D-Link, Linksys, Netgear. Another thing to remember is that you will see about 1/2 of the speed that's advertised. A 54 Mpbs router will have about 25-30 Mbps throughput, etc. That's more than enough for sharing Internet...
