You might consider looking at Intertex


which IMHO is pretty good. The support is excellent too via their forum


the product manager often answers questions

They are designed for SOHO use so the price is not bad, although it is 
higher than US Robotics, Linksys and D-link. But it is a lot cheaper 
than Cisco.

When I had a problem with my Intertex IX66 ADSL modem/router/firewall 
(which was actually a telephone line problem, not the Intertex product), 
they agreed to send me an advance replacement, which then sent by a 
next-day couier from Sweden to England.

Of course it did not cure the problem, since it was a telephone line 
issue, but I thought it was pretty good of them for a SOHO priced product.
