I have a Netgear C3700-100NAS. It is ok. I bought mine used. It was pretty
inexpensive. I see them for $30 or less, used on Ebay. They claim they
support up to 600Mbs on the WAN side.

I haven't used the wireless on the C3700-100NAS. I don't use many advanced
features on the router. As I run a secondary router behind it. Still it
seems like a decent unit for the price.
