I ended up buying a used Linksys WRV54G for next to nothing. I'm using it as wired, it has 4 LAN ports so I even have an extra port if I ever need it.

Holy Moly! The increase in my browsing speed is considerable. I had no idea a different router could make that much of a difference. That old D-Link dying on me was a blessing in disguise!
