I've had several dlinks as well, all crapped out after about 6 months or so. Linksys has been more reliable for me. You shouldn't need more than a wireless-g model. wireless-n is nice, it has added speed, but really unnecessary unless you game a lot on a pc. I think last linksys wireless-g I got at best buy, I got for around $50.

I am going to put my $.02 in.....

 

Now I am partial to LinkSys. They have really good hardware but their firmware is not the greatest. The good thing though is that there are 3rd party firmware's for wireless routers that is GREAT!!! Tomato and DD-WRT are two. The other good thing is that those firmwares can work on other brands too like D-Link or Buffalo.

 

I would stay away from NetGear!!!

 

D-Link and Buffalo have good equipment too.

 

With your requirements I would look in to something like this.

Now it will be more then your $60 BUT with 5 devices, I don't know what is wireless, you need the extra ports a switch would provide. If you don't need all 4 ports then you can do without the switch for now.

you need an N router. I got a netgear N router for 120 bucks, but that goes over your budget :-\

I have the cheapest D-link made. I paid $30 for it ant Target. I've had it for over a year now, and I haven't had one problem. (knock on wood...literally) I know people who have $150 Linksys who are always having problems. Now don't me wrong, I'm not recommending any of them. I'm an idiot when it comes to computer shit, but I think the whole picture has a lot to do with your wireless router.

It seems like with every router brand out there, for some its lasted years and for others, only a few months. Guess it all depends on luck. Hopefully, you'll get a router that will last you a long time!

Linksys has worked great for me for over 6 years.. i have had 2 of them due to my kid getting to the first one.. but all in all WRT54G has been extremely nice to me.. and i have had to help friends w/ other kinds.. d-link, belkin, etc... some have ended up working while others were returned... all in all a router should be a router.. but it seems as though some are a lil easier to configure then others.. good luck and let us know what you get.
