Netgear routers are pretty good. I have been running a Netgear DG834G v2 Since 2005 and it has been flawless so far, under heavy traffic with an attached NAS and additional network switch with numerous computers, its in constant use. The wireless side of things has been great, not put a foot wrong.
The v5 has a few improvements, including a negotiation LED and a button to switch the wireless on an off, which can prove useful.
The DGN2000 models seem very reliable also, and very very similiar in features and stability. If you are prepared to pay the small extra charge, you might as well IF YOU USE THE WIRELESS A LOT!! If you are usually cabled in, why bother?
