Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

For basic 300Mbps N capability and Gb LAN the D-Link DIR-655 has the best reviews I've seen at Newegg and it's only 64 bucks. Highly recommended, I'm still using this router as my gateway.

If you want really good performance and reliability Draytek's are a good router to buy.

In addition, I have luck using Buffalo Dual band router with Gig ports. I've recommended this to some of my friends and also Posters in different forums and seems to work for them, quite reasonable too. Feel free to check out this Netgear Dual band router as well. Buy from a reputable Vendor for a hassle free return just in case there's an issue. I use Amazon for business and personal stuff.

Netgear does have some good products I had a N300 modem+wireless/ Small home and it worked very well so the N600 I'm sure is very good as well,
Switched to U-verse so it's sitting in a box
