Default wireless router question

ok, im 16 and my bedroom is in the basement. So i need to know which wireless router is good enough to feed to the computer upstairs and the one in my basement. So it has to beable to go through 3 foot of concrete. I use my computer for gaming so i need one that has a good signal and feed rate. So can any one make any suggestions?

Linksys makes great routers. If you have a problem with reception, you can put a repeater somewhere between the PC and the router.
