I'm looking for a simple wired router I can get in the local computer big box stores. I don't want wireless capability in this case - just wired only. Connecting 3 PC's to Verizon DSL and one printer.

I see several online, for example the following. Can anyone recommend or not recommend any particular brand and model? Looking for under $50.

Thanks in advance

Most any brand will work in your case, just try to stick with a name
brand one. Is the printer going to be connected to the router too? If
so your choices will be severly limited unless you have a standard
networking printer. It will be easier to just hook the printer up to
one pc and then share it with the other pc's, if it is not a
networking printer with a standard network cable hookup.
