    Linksys WRT54GL. Great router and there are loads of options for 3rd party firmware if you want to do things like setup OSPF, increase wireless power and so on.

    As it's cable and if money isn't too much of an object then why not go draft-N? Something like a D Link DIR-655 or a Netgear WNR854T?

    I'll put a good word for the Linksys router. Have used them before with no problems.
