Does anyone have any recommendations for a wireless router/modem? I'm looking to get rid of my old Actiontec dsl router/modem. It has one Ethernet port hooked to a Netgear 5 port switch and I'm ready to get rid of that.

I've looked at a couple Linksys and trendnet.which look pretty decent.

Brand name doesn't matter so much. SOHO routers are a pretty basic device and one is going to be pretty much as good as another. If you stick to common brands, you'll have better warranty and service should something go wrong with what you purchase.

Having said that, I would highly recommend you get one that has dual radios and can operate at both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz concurrently. With some router's it's one or the other but you want one that can operate on both at the same time.

I would suggest you get one that has 4 LAN ports that are 1000 Mbps capable as well.
