N300 router that doesn't drop connection

I am looking for a wireless router with the following features for less than $80.

Gigabit Ethernet
802.11n 300Mbps
Open source firmware support (optional)

I found a few of these on newegg but all of them have reviews which claim that these routers drop the wireless signal every so often and need to be reset. I have a router that has the exact same problem but it is very old now and so I understand. But a new router with this problem is not acceptable.

Is this a problem with all routers? Or are people simply doing something wrong?

Anyway, here are the routers that I found. Please give me some suggestions on which one to buy.

Thanks in advance
