Need Advice on Purchasing Modem/Router

I am interested in purchasing a dsl modem router with wireless N and gb ports built in. Also must have wpa-2. This is for home use. I prefer Linksys but was unable to find anything on their website that meets these requirements. I did find the WAG320N... but, it seemed like it may be an older model. I want something that will be reliable with fast speeds and secure.

Any suggestions and/or feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I'd suggest getting a modem, and a separate wifi router. My current favorite dual band wfi gigabit is the buffalo wzr Hp ag300n.
If your budget allows, the Draytek Vigor 2830N 's are very good. Failing that, the netgear N600's are worth considering
Expanding on Aaron's comment, I use this Buffalo router and love it.

There is not much difference between the 2 routers, I'm basically just second'ing his recommendation.

DD-WRT is great for intermediate - advanced users... might be a bit overwhelming for novice users, but even then shouldn't be discounted.

My request was specifically for a modem router. I know that there are other modem/routers on the market. Only James addressed my specific question. But, I'm also giving points to the others because the suggestion to get a separate modem and router may be the way I ultimately need to go to get what I want. I gave points based on usefulness of their answers. Thanks guys! I appreciate the input.
