[Wolves] Cable Wireless Router recommendations

Virgin media always supply the cable modem (co-axial cable connection).  I have used (and still use) a Belkin cable wireless router (around £40) successfully but I see no reason why a Netgear wireless router should not be as good.
The Virgin technician installs the cable modem, then either connect the PC using ethernet directly to the router (I do) with the wireless connection for the laptops.

Have you considered a switch and std wireless access point.  In my
experience these wireless routers dont last too long so a long term
option may be use the existing virgin modem (they used to supply that)
coupled with a switch and access point or a good quality cable router
and firewall (may be netgear?) with a dlink access point or something.
Draytek is good kit for home / small business use.
