Walked into Best Buy and saw the Linksys 4 port Cable/DSL router for $59 minus a $10 rebate. This is a really a great deal if you have been in the market for one. Even if you're not, this router makes a great hardware firewall for any high speed connection.

Absolutely, this is the same router I've been using for almost a year now (paid $100 for mine tho)

Very solid product
My Setup:

HR23 in Theater via HDMI to Mitsubishi HC1500 projector
H24 in Master Bedroom
(All above using whole home)
DTivo (6.2 with MRV) in Kid's Play room
3 DTivos "spare", unsubbed in kids rooms to pull from "thier" DTivo

It is the most popular router out there. They did upgrade it a little bit (added like a X to the model #) so that might be the original model, but at $49 you can't go wrong (unless you think you might want the Wireless Access Point with Router combo unit) :)
