Router brand is just personal preference....I use and prefer the Linksys brand, just for the simple user interface and ease of installation...very user friendly. If you think your router is about to go down on you...a new wireless N is the way to go...and relatively inexpensive. You can pick one up at almost any retail store for around $50 to $70.
