Best wireless router to use with Clear?

Now that I have Clear and am happy with it, I am looking to purchase a wireless router to hook up to it. I have two desktops and a laptop in the house that are all in use plus I'd like to add my HD Tivo to it to download movies. Any suggestions? I want to make sure the router will work with WiMAX without any problems and is easy to set up. I know that Clear sells a router but am not sure if it is the best solution. I have the home modem from Clear.

I have a Linksys WRT54GL that works flawless.

Linksys WRT610N running well here. shoplinksys.com has good deals on refurbished routers.

Netgear WPN824v2 here.

I have a desktop connected via ethernet, and a PS3 and a laptop via wireless.

For most home networks, it's hard to beat P11001's recommendation of the Linksys WRT54GL. This little router is the router of choice for many techies. It seems to be one of the most reliable offerings by Linksys today, as many of their newer models seem to suffer in quality. It is also very easy to flash this model with 3rd party firmware such as dd-wrt or tomato.

You didn't indicate whether you needed wireless N or could get by with wireless g. If all you need is "g", than get this router online for about fifty bucks.

Just FYI, the WRT610N is Linksys's top router with dual-band wireless N support and MIMO technology, is fully compatible with third party firmware, and only costs $100 refurbished. It's a steal.
