New wireless router recommendations

We have an old D-link DIR-655 wireless router that has become kind of flakey lately (dropping connectivity fairly often) and, after reading a few other Asks on routers, I think we probably just need a new one.

My old router with Tomato firmware did it very simply: there was a blank for the external port, and a blank for the internal port behind NAT, and external traffic sent to the external port gets forwarded to the internal computer on the internal port.

Can't Connect both Windows Latop & iPad to VerizonFIOS wifi simultaneously

Annoying Verizon FIOS wireless router issue: if iPad/iPhone are on the wireless network, Windows laptop machines will not connect to wireless network. If I turn off WiFi on iPad/iPhone and restart the router, Windows machines get on WiFi right away. But after Windows machines are connected to WiFi, starting up WiFi on the iPad will almost always cause the Windows machines to drop their connections. More after the jump... [more inside]

Netbook from Verizon - use with current WiFi setup? Monthly charge?

I live in Los Angeles and have Time Warner for my internet connection and Verizon for my cell service. If I buy a WiFi-capable netbook from Verizon, will it pick up the the signal from my wireless router I'm already using at home? If so, does this mean I don't have to pay any monthly charges for having the netbook?
