Best Wireless Gateway for HPE-210y?

I was hoping that someone could help a noob. I'm trying to find the best wireless solution for my home HPE-210y. I use this machine as my media center: I have it connected to my HDTV and I'm strictly watching internet content (Hulu, Netflix, ESPN3, etc). I have cable internet a 8 mbps through Charter. I also have a blueray player hooked up downstairs over LAN for streaming Netflix, Pandora, VOD, etc. Range is not an issue as my house is pretty small.

 

I'm looking for something that will allow my wife and me to stream at the same time, so I assume I'm looking for bit-rate, but i'm not super knowledgeable. I've had good success with my current gateway (Motorola 48400) but I want to be sure I've got the best hardware possible for now and into the future. Any advise (or constructive criticism) would be welcomed. Thanks folks.

Thanks Dave. I've read a lot of reviews where people are recomending a seperate modem/router setup rather than an all-in-one. WOuld you (or anyone else) recomend anything one way or the other?

I use a wireless router and it works well. Most also act as a "stateful"  firewall.  My broadband modem is supplied by my ISP.
