I second on the Apple AirPort Extreme. Don't get me wrong
I owned several Linksys routers in the past (before Cisco buyout); they were awesome routers and they were very customizable, especially with third-party firmware.
As have I. I still have a Linksys WRT54GS, WRT160N, WRT310N, and a WRT610N that all died within the same year. (I need to clean out that storage bin.) I kept buying more expensive models hoping reliability would improve. It didn't. I finally settled on an Apple Airport Extreme (4th Gen) and it's been rock solid for 2 years now.
