What would be the best option for me?

What is the benefit of having the ability to plug in a hard drive or printer via USB?

The newer Technicolor modem routers should have Wi-Fi built-in.

OK it has taken a while but I have replaced my modem with a Linksys WRT1900AC, and am happy with it.
Thanks for all your help.
