    Depends on the amount of coverage you need.

    You can get a basic for about $40 for minimal coverage or go into a hundred or more dollars with more powerful units that have multiple antennas.

    Linksys, Netgear and D-Link are the top brands.

    I would do an Amazon search for routers. Look at the prices and read the reviews. I would love to recommend something specific to you, but models change all the time.

    This is a highly rated basic router:

    If you have money to burn and need something more powerful, these are the best-rated routers at this moment:

    Another thing to consider is that where all the ethernet cables converge is often not the best place to have a wifi access point. A standalone access point gives you that flexibility.

    I just installed the almost-identical TP-link C5 V2 router, purchased for $30 on a pre-Xmas sale at Newegg. See my review on a new thread. It's great.
