Buy a router compatible with both Windows and OS X. Now a days most of the routers have built-in firewall, which gives you extra protection against attacks, especially for the Windows PC. Consider buying a router with both hard wired(100MBits/s) and wireless(only 54Mbits/s) capabilities. That way you have option to change from one to the other depending on speed demand.
Airport express(fom Apple) is a nother possibility but in my opinion it is still expensive for what it offers.
