What Router Should I buy

I am trying to determine which router I should buy.   The router will  be connected to a wireless controller that is managing  about 15 AP’s spread throughout the building.  It will be the DHCP server  for the guest network configured on the controller. It will also transport the wireless traffic from the controler to an NSA 3600 SonicWall.  from the SonicWall  traffic goes to the internet.   Network traffic is internet based with very little  video.  The average number of users is about 60 but can go as high as 150. Devices are mixed laptops, Smart phones and Tablets.   Any suggestions would be appreciated.

For 60 users, NSA 3600 is good enough to act as a router and as a firewall.
If you still want to have a route go for basic cisco 1900, because most of your traffic is filtered/controlled already by Controller, and your router does not do much other than acting between 3600 and the controller.

One thing that you will notice on 3600 if used as router is lot of dns and dhcp requests causing most traffic (when you look at the reports, the solution for that is to have a small linux based dns caching server that would offset all the traffic hits on 3600)
