I've only used 3 brands so far. Trendnet, Netgear and my current is an ASUS N65U-RT. Of course I like my current better in terms of feature and I am quite familiar with the interface. But to answer your question, I find the Netgear the easiest to setup. Have a look at this. http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/netgear-netgear-wireless-n-dual-band-router-n600-wndr3400-100pas/10168301.aspx?path=a9a8f2b6adcf8d02657dff4ddb0958eaen02


This is the one I had before. I like it. I just upgraded to ASUS because I wanted gigabit speed. There might be something out there at you price range with dual-band and gigabit speed, but to find something like that below $75 is questionable to me. 


The Pros about this Netgear:

-Easy setup (just pop the CD in and follow the step by step prompt, Done in about 3 to 5 minutes)

-It's dual-band N-speeds  (most mobile devices and newer laptops are dual band)

-it has USB for sharing portable hard drive and printer over your network

-network map is awesome

-it has a mobile phone app for monitoring and setup


The Con:

It's not gigabit. But it may not be important to you at this point.
