Didn't see anything else about this but anyone have a recommendation for a decent router?

Main use would be for gaming, mmo's and such but the fiance would want to connect her gaming rig as well as her laptop. I will not be using the wireless component for gaming. I don't want to go over $200 if I can help it.

Looking at the following:

D-Link DGL 4500

Netgear WNDR4500

Linksys E4200V2

Any other suggestions or personal experiences would be helpful.

Honestly, when looking for a wireless router, the biggest thing to look for is 802.11b/g/n compatibility and can read both 2.4 AND 5 Ghz. Past that it's almost always brand name. Not much difference in installation and configuration between brands. I bought a Netgear WNDR3700-100NAS and I absolutely love it. 100 dollars well spent.

Another great option that my cousin has is the Asus RT-N56U.

I'm worried more about QoS and maintaining a steady connection through the cables. The wireless on this will be used only for the fiance and her gaming laptop, we have a separate router and data connection for normal use.

I see what you mean though, I was a little turned off to the WNDR3700 but that Asus RT-N56U is pretty nice, that may be the one I go with, it has everything I need for a decent price.
