My stepson currently has verizon DSL service and right now has a single port, Westell 6100 modem/router for a wired connection only. He's getting a new laptop and wants to continue to connect his desktop machine directly to the modem/router but wants to connect the laptop using it's built-in wireless "N" NIC.
The issue is that my stepson is VERY non-technical and I feel very stongly that the best direction for him is to go with a wireless modem/router that is provided by and supported by Verizon. Can anyone tell me what make/model of wireless modem/routers Verizon is offering and whether any of them are supporting wireless "N" vs. the older wireless "G" standard?

You are on the right track!
I just traveled this road myself. You're right if you don't use verizon equipment nothing else will work.
Contact verizon DSL support tell them based on your application you want a VersaLink Model 7500 by Westell
It's a 4 port plus wireless combo modem/router.
It will address all your application wishes. Tech support will assist you with the set up.
Trust me you are going to love this Westell hardware.
Hope this helps Good luck!
