TP-LINK TL-R860 Advanced 8-Port Cable/DSL Router, 1 WAN Port, 8 LAN Ports
This is a great wired router for small-scale LAN parties or for small businesses that need up to eight connections on a network. There's a single WAN port and eight LAN ports allowing you to easily connect between multiple systems on a network. TP-LINK includes excellent software for securing and managing your network, including DoS protection and remote management tools. You can also access IP-based bandwidth controls which let you adjust how much bandwidth is used by each system thus ensuring high performance for bandwidth-intensive programs. This is not a Gigabit router so keep that in mind if you want the fastest speed possible. The management tools with this one are pretty good, including access limitations based on IP address or even time of day, so parents and administrators can limit access to children or employees.
