    Linksys WRT54GS is a great router, never had a problem for 4 years of use.

    I take it you'll be getting an 802.11G router?

    Here's a few to consider:

    D-Link DI-624 AirPlus Xtreme G
    Linksys WRT54GL
    Buffalo WHR-54G (a cheaper alternative to the Linksys)

    I've had no experience with any of them, though I've heard some great things about them.
