The brand of router shouldn't matter, you'd probably be safe buying the cheapest one you can find.

I'm not sure if you can buy a router that has both wired and wireless connections, wouldn't hurt to look.

The speed you get depends on your setup. There are many things that can interfere with a wireless signal, cordless phones, wiring in the wall, microwave, etc., so it's hard to say what speed you will get. Also, your speed won't necessarily be cut in half just because you've got 2 computers sharing a connection, if both are online at the same time, and both are downloading large files, then you'll probably see your speed affected, otherwise, probably not.
