Just to begin, I apologize in advance for my noob questions as I have no idea how to shop for a router...hence why I came here ;]
I currently own an AT&T Motorola NVG510 router and am using a Netgear WN111 wireless USB adapter. Lately, I have been experiencing constant signal drops and slow speeds...I'm ready to upgrade my router / modem and my wireless adapter. I just don't know where to start!

Any tips? Sorry if this was vague and I can answer any questions to the best of my abilities.
Thank you!

Depends on how much you want to spend, amount of users, bandwidth speed, support for peripherals and other features.
All i can say is if you've got a medium sized place and more than a couple people using the WiFi avoid the N150 routers.

If signal is your issue, look for something that can have a couple or more antennas attached.
Make sure you know what youre buying too, a Modem Router allows you to plug the phone line in it, however a Router will require you to bridge a modem.

Personally, ive got a crappy Netgear N150 modem router from my provider, but ive turned the WiFi off and bridged it to a TP Link N750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router, which handles all the Wifi, file server, print server, etc..
