    Question new router ? wired/wireless combo

    Well, it finally happened, my old Linksys BEFSX41 wired router died. It was a couple years more loyal than the previous exact version, but I guess it's time to give my laptop wireless access in my house. I would like at least 3 wired connections on the new router with also wireless capabilities. Not sure if it matters much, but two of the wired computers are still WinXP and the third is this laptop (Win 8.1) when it is wired instead of wireless. I sometimes have visiters with an ipad also that need wireless. Any ideas on new router? Thank you.

    EDIT: ok, so thinking about this one just to change over to wireless, but might not be fast enough for newer applications; apparently, all the newer Linksys ones are crap. Any other router brands I should consider? What's this wireless adapter for that doesn't come included with a lot of routers?
