I need a wireless Router... all I know is that I'd like an N router up to 300 mbps.

Right now its just the one computer but i'll soon be connecting multiple computers. I also just got a new printer that has built in wireless. So once we buy a laptop we will like to be able to print wirelessly.

Do i need a certain router to be able to do that. B/c i know on the belkin routers it says on the box i need the "share N300" model for wireless printing. but the belkin routers haven't been getting good reviews.

The printer and the computer are the next room over from the modem and where the wireless router will be. We have an xbox 360 hard wired in and will be keeping it that way.

My computer right now is running on only a g-adaptor.. although i will eventually be upgrading that.

Also i'm in an apartment right now but will eventually be getting a house where i'd like the router to be able to work across the entire house as well as outside. So range is an issue for me.

Is there any specs i should be looking for?

I'm looking to spend around 50 or 60 on the router.
