Depends on the features you're looking for.

I'm using the Netgear WRT834 [1], which is nice for home use, since it 
contains a built-in 802.11b/g access point and 4-port switch as well. 
Runs linux on the inside, so there is a chance that Sveasoft [2] 
firmware can be used on it.  Can be picked up for <R1500.
