Recommendation for a good Wireless Router

I'm looking for recommendations for a good Wireless router. Preferably a wireless N router.

Setup:

2 desktop computers will be physically plugged into the router.

2 laptops will be wirelessly connected.

One laptop is running Windows Vista, one is running Windows 7. So the router needs to be Windows 7 and Vista compatible.

Both laptops support Wireless N, one has a Intel wireless card, the other an Atheros wireless card.

I'm currently using a Linksys WRT160N V3 router (completely updated and setup) and I'm losing connection wirelessly, it'll just drop the connection. The router has a lot of bad reviews talking about connection drops and not working with two different OS's at the same time.

I'm in Canada, so my options might be a bit different. I would also like to keep the cost reasonable, some of the one's listed below are rather expensive.

Here are some options available to me:

Belkin N150 Enhanced Wireless N Router (F5D8236-4
Belkin Wireless N+ Router (F5D8235TT4)

D-Link RangeBooster N Router (DIR-628)
DLink RangeBooster Wireless G Router (WBR-2310)
D-Link Wireless N Router (DIR-615)
D-Link Xtreme Wireless N Router (DIR-655)
D-Link Xtreme Wireless N Router (DIR-825)

Linksys RangePlus Wireless G Router (WRT110)
Linksys Wireless N Router (WRT120N)
Linksys Wireless G Router (WRT54G2)
Linksys Wireless N Router (WRT310N)
Cisco Wireless N Router WRT400N

Any suggestions, thoughts are appreciated.
