What wireless router to get?

First I have to say I have no idea about routers. None. Did not need one till we got another PC in the house and I am tired of waiting to take my turn.
Here is the situation. During the day I need to be able to stream data without any interference. So I am thinking about dual band router. One band for streaming, one for the rest: email, etc.
I have one PC running XP; the other Windows 7. Security is very important, as is speed and ease of use. The router will not be on all the time; I will use it just like my modem and turn it off when not in use.
I have read the "Welcome" email, but it does not select top 3 for example. Checked CNet Reviews as well; just too many choices. Went to local stores (BB, OD, S, etc.), but the usual recommendation is what's on sale / what they need to clear out.
Local Costco has Belkin Play N600 HD Wireless Dual-Band N Router under $90, but checking user's review stopped me from getting it. Any suggestions?
