I have a Linksys wireless router and don't have the noise problem you  
are experiencing.  Based on prior posts on here, you might considering  
removing the wall wart and using a non-switching power supply.  I  
myself use the wall wart, and I haven't experienced any noise problems  
on the 2 meter downlink.  You might also consider building a cage for  
the router, if you have determined that's your source of noise.
