Title says it all. I checked Amazon, and was overwhelmed with all the choices. The faster wireless the better. If you know of one that is currently on sale, I will send you a cookie through my mind powers!

Do you (or someone) have a model number? They make a lot of stuff.

Thank you Dark Shadow.

While, LOM was feeling smug about himself, I went through the list, and found only one router that had 8 lan ports and wireless. It is:
D-Link DIR-632 Wireless-N 8-Port Router

I have to say, I am pretty surprised with a market this huge, there is only 1 product with that configuration!

Reviews are pretty 50/50 with 5 start or 1 star... makes me hesitant.

The D-Link DIR-632 is also 10/100, not gigabit as specified in the initial request. Let's start by reading, then move on to being smug ;)

For sub-60 bucks, I'd consider downgrading LAN bandwidth in my place just to consolidate devices.

I'm interested why it has to be 8port..

Is it the lack of power plugins?

Coz you can get pretty decent router with pretty decent switch..
