Recommend a wireless router (xbox 360)

I will soon have my xbox 360, and am getting the wireless adapter for it as well. Since my PC is on the 2nd floor of my home, and the Xbox on the 1st - can someone recommend the best wireless router for this? I need ideas for family christmas presents, and this may be what I ask for.

I'm running a cable modem (Comcast) if that makes any difference.

Thanks in advance.

I believe that MS reccommends using a 802.11a not "b" or "g" but "a"

IIRC, the wireless adapter for the 360 supports "a", "b", or "g".

you should be able to pick up a linksys "g" router for a decent price -- check the best buy or circuit city circulars. they usually are having weekly sales on these.

I picked up a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router .. got it all hook up and I can use the internet without problems. However, I can not connect to Xbox live. It sees my wireless adaptor, but then fails on the 2nd (wireless network).

Any suggestions?
