Cisco Linksys E4200 or Apple Airport Extreme, both very easy to manage (UI-wise) and have excellent throughput. Excellent throughput for both local network and toward Internet.
I currently have an Cisco Linksys E4200 with a Netgear WN2000RPT wireless--to-wired bridge for some non-wireless stuff. Stable and smooth. I get 50-60 Mbps on my MacBook from downstairs, even though it's behind reinforced concrete walls and floors. Highly recommended.
