For those of you who don't know the difference between a Dual Band Router and a regular: The major difference is the performance speed. Most devices are only compatible with the 2.4GHz band, however, some devices such as iPads, newer wireless cards, are able to use the 5GHz band for faster speeds.

I have a Linksys Gigabit N router, but not the dual-band one, and I've had good luck with it (had it for approx 1 1/2 years now); I'd recommend it so long as you don't need software to setup routers for you (half the complaints for it were related to software complaints, but you really don't need software to setup a router).
Mine's nice and speedy, but occasionally I'll have to do a reboot (like every 3 months or so), seems to get clogged with cache buildup (common for routers). It can also handle a ton of connections, great if you do torrenting (I had a belkin that was garbage, the thing would freeze if there were more than 50 connections total).
This is a pretty good deal if you need dual-band since its full retail and not refurb, I'm thinking about getting one since mine is getting a little old and was refurbed to begin with.

Oh, and they get hot so they have to be ventilated, it works best to stick some felt feet on the bottom to prop it up a little more for extra airflow (vents are on the bottom).
