good brand: netgear and no ebay they will give you one with bad firmware. people do it all the time as a prank. a freind did this and she got burned and it couldn't be returned.

Netgear? It's one of the highest selling companies for wireless equipment. I personally run Netgear now, but I ran Netgear and Linksys for years without a hitch.

Wireless N is expensive. Heres the best N router you can get for the money:

D-Link DIR-655

if you want top tier stuff like cisco, nortel, juniper and the like be prepared to take a class on it and drop several thousand dollars on it. not worth it for home use.

Linksys, Netgear, US Robotics, I don't think it even matters if it does what you need it to.
