Depending on your internet you may need a specific router to work.
Some providers will only work with some routers.
You also don't state if it is wired or wireless you need.
Tigerdirect has routers starting at 20.00 USD for a 4 port type.
NewEgg has two different ones for less then 20.00 USD/
Both of these choices are for a wired type.

Who's Jim?
Higher priced routers will get some differences with programming them and options to control but in all you are mostly paying for the name, speed and controllability of the router.
Again I would suggest contacting your ISP and see what they suggest.
