Advice on wireless router please

I need to check my thinking with you networking gurus.
My current set up uses a BT Voyager 205 ethernet router/modem - it is connected via a long lead to the BT socket. I would like to dispense with the lead and connect via wireless to (I guess) a wireless router/modem which I can connect direct to the BT socket downstairs.
I would be grateful if some of you would validate my thoughts and suggest an appropriate device to accomplish this.

Belkin 7632 or 7633, 3Com or D-Link 604 series perhaps. All good. You'll need to keep an RJ45 handy for initial setup and subsequent configuration of any settings that relate to the wireless signal (security, ADSL settings, etc). Use a laptop for this purpose, rather than having a really long cable or moving the router.

(Note that in the current PC World Magazine there is a voucher for 10% off wireless networking products when you spend £60 - so I guess if you need anything else, like an extra ADSL filter - there`s only one in the above kit - you could save a bit)
