For speed I like the Netgear WNDR3700. I consider it my top pick for the moment, even though the Netgear brand has burned me several times in the past with DOA or partially defective equipment out of the box.

The Netgear WNDR3800 N600 has good support for external usb drives from flash to hard drives. It uses ReadySHARE technology which treats the USB devices as a sort of a private cloud server.

For customizable firmware I like the D-Link DIR-855 or the lesser D-Link DIR-655 Xtreme N Gigabit Router.

For a gaming router you could consider the D-Link DGL-4500 or the Linksys E2000, since both are known for minimizing in-game lag and boosting network efficiency and performance for an optimized online gaming experience.

I am actually a Linkys guy, but my favorite router (Linksys WRT600N) is not made any more, and I am trying to look for one that is close to it.

I would say a DLink or netgear N300 or better. This is purely out of experience

I personally prefer Cisco routers. The specific router will depend if you want your 5 devices to be connected by wireless or wired. You will be able to connect as many devices as you need over wireless, but you will probably want an 8 port switch/router. One port is usually used to connect to your previous connection, so you will have 7 ports left.

If you have wireless network, you can use Huawei E583C Router, just use one card

alt text If you have ethernet network, you can use Huawei B970, it has ethernet ports for more users.
