Check with D&B Media in Mas Guerido. They're knowledgeable and their prices are fairly low.

Take care - you might buy quite the wrong thing which doesn't work.

As far as I understand it (and I might be wrong) there are basically 3 types - a plain wireless router, one that's designed to work with ADSL, and one that works with Cable. It all depends what you plan to plug it into. Then there's the basic 802.11g/n ones that work fine in most situations, or something called Mimo which has 2 aerials instead of the usual 1 which has greater power for longer distances or thicker walls.

I've always used Netgear routers and have found them reliable and pretty easy to set up.
