Is this for DSL or cable?

If for DSL you need one with an integral DSL Modem. If for Cable you don't.

Do you want wireless facilities and where in the world are you.

Actually, cable requires a modem too.

The first question in this case should be, "Do you already have a modem, or do you need one?"

Most ISP's (in my experience) provide a modem, even if they charge the end user for it. Fortunately, my ISP doesn't, so if it breaks, they replace it at no charge to me. When I initially signed up with them after moving here I got a combo unit (combination Modem/Router/Access Point) but the wireless side of it starting to go bad (had to keep recycling the power) so I called them, got them to send me just a modem, and bought myself a good Linksys SOHO router.

If you already have a modem, I can recommend most anything by Linksys. You'll want a wireless capable one obviously as you have wireless only devices (iPhone, iPad). I would get something that is Wireless N and see if you can't get one with 1 Gig (1000 Mbps) LAN interfaces

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

True, but the difference is that DSL routers have a Modem built while cable routers don't. Cable Modems come as a separate device. DSL Modems don't.

If the OP buys a Router designed fro cable then needs a DSL Modem he is going to have to buy another router as I have never seen stand alone DSL Modems for years.

If he buys a DSL Router and has cable then her has spent money on something he doesn't need.
