I've used Netgear and found them quite satisfactory.

I've used both their wired and wireless.

(Note: on the netgear wireless routers
you can turn off the radio and just use the wired portion, holding the
wireless against the day when relatives with lap tops visit). I mention this
because the price with wireless is seldom any more expensive than
the price without wireless these days.

I too have had to replace a couple linksys routers and always did so
with netgear.

Biggest complaint: not all models support active ftp (or what ever non-passive
ftp is called) because they left that particular flavor of connection
tracking out of their iptables setup. They do support passive ftp just fine.
