    I'm using a D-Link Wired Router. It sucks now since in the last 3 months it hasn't allowed me to have a shared connection between my xbox and computer. Nor has it gave me a solid connection with my xbox online.

    Wireless is out of the question, I don't need it. I want to buy another router, and sell this one I have now. So if you have any suggestions that would be great, I'm also providing a link to a computer store that is close by and carries two brands (both crap, but hey something might work).

    You might consider buying a wireless router anyway. You may want one in the future. For now, you can just turn the wireless completely off if you're worried about people accessing your network.
    Here is the wireless I'd recommend:

    Or you could go with their Open source version:

    It doesn't have much advantage over the less expensive router for typical users.
