If it works for your ISP and is cheaper, get 6 meg connection. That will almost certainly work perfectly for you. Since you say it's available you can always go to a higher speed if necessary. Most home routers come with wireless connection anyway and they are fairly cheap. You should get a wireless version because it means you can add wireless later, etc. That being said, if possible, anything you can wire directly to the router, you should. Wireless connections can be flaky some time and using a wired connection takes away that variable. The Cisco-Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router should work fine for you. You don't really need a N router, but it is the current latest thing. Wherever you buy it, make sure you can take it back, no questions asked, if it doesn't work.
