    The router is independent from what OS you run. So there is no preferred router. Dlink is a good brand.

    I've always liked Linksys, though not a lot of people agree with me on that. :D

    If you provide some examples, we can let you know if they're "good" or not.

    Go buy a wireless router at an electronics store and ask for a WiFi Router. All further instructions should be inside the box of the WiFi router.

    Also when setting it up make sure DHCP server is enabled or it wont assign an IP to the connecting device.

    That's a wireless adapter for your desktop computer. You still need a router for it to connect to.

    If you already have a modem/router combo with wireless then nothing to do, just get yourself a wireless receiver for your tower.

    If you have a modem then just get a wireless router from any store (whatever you prefer) and a wireless receiver for your tower.

    All the instructions for how to setup router and how to connect your receiver will be there in manual.
