Which wireless router for windows 7?

Hi all, newbie here. I will be getting a new dell laptop soon with a "intel wifi link 5100 802.11n wireless minicard" in it. I would like to know what the best read (easiest) wireless router to get from walmart or radio shack or some place like that to set up. I want to set up the laptop with windows seven to the router wirelessly and my desktop (XP) wired to the router as well. I will also need to be able to get my son's wii and dsi onto the router wirelessly. I have dsl and am familiar with the modem and how to set these up but this will be my first attempt at wireless. Price is really not a issue so gimme what ya got...... thanks in advance. Dave

Have a look at the D-Link DIR-655 mate.
Im running one now. Ive got 2 PC's and an Xbox 360 connected to it with ethernet cables, and my Wii with the wireless N feature.
Since your card supports the 802.11N technology, I think it would pair great with this router. One of the quotes on the box says "Xtreme N Gigabit Router".
It ran me somewhere around 100 dollars, but I would spend it again on a router like this. Search it up on google for some reviews to see if it suits your needs..

I have an old linksys wrt54g with modified firmware running as an wireless access point. It even functioned great as a router before I got my new one.

for ease of install, probably go with any linksys Wireless Modem or Access point by Cisco mate. The newest "Linksys" look good and perform well (remember to get a new modem with "802.11N" - the N for fastest speeds, u dont really need to know about dual band) check out some reviews online though.
I myself, have a Billion 7800N, and a Cisco 800 series. Dont worry about Cisco, think about Linksys, Billion, Dlink, maybe Belkin or TP-link?
They are all pretty similar, but I have setup all of those at one point or another, so I would probs say a Lynksys or a Belkin for ease of setup

Yes it does, but check all the reviews first before you pull money out of your pockets... reviews arent that crash hot for that model.. 5.5/10 here for the majority of people here in Australia

Correct me I am wrong but cisco and linksys is the same company.

But as a router suggestion, I would recomend the Asus RT-N56U, I belive its their only wireless router they have, but its so simple to set up, just plug the router in like anyother machine and then just put in the cdrom and it will tell you step by step, you will have a wireless and fully functional router up in about 1-2 min
