You don't mention if you have cable or ADSL so I can't really advise on 
specific models, but I have not had any problems with Netgear routers I 
have a DG834G v2 which I used for 3 years or so without any problems 
which was recently retired and replaced with a BT Home Hub, and I also 
have a Netgear cable router (not sure of the model number off the top of 
my head) which was provided by Virgin Media for my cable broadband and 
this also works fine although I found the firmware to be a little bit 
more restrictive on it (I also found this on a newer Netgear ADSL router).

I've also had pretty good results with Buffalo and Linksys but had no 
end of problems with a Belkin router when I first invested in a wireless
