A Good "Not Expensive" Wireless N Router?

Hello sevenforums! It's been a while since my last post. I'm looking to upgrade my Linksys WRT54G with SpeedBooster (Ver 6). I've been having stability problems with the devices (I believe it's because of the increased amount of devices in my network), such as my laptop with its crappy Centrino N2230 wireless card.

I'm trying to look for a not expensive alternative to a temporary wireless N router (Planning on upgrading to AC next year), and I wanted you to recommend me something around the 40$ range.

I've been doing some Amazon research and stumbled upon with these:

Amazon.com: Linksys EA3500 - Dual-Band N750 Router with Gigabit and USB (Certified Refurbished): Computers & Accessories

Amazon.com: ASUS 3-In-1 Wireless Router (RT-N12): Electronics

Any other suggestions?

Thanks!!!

Depends how far you want to reach. The ones with antennas reach a bit further.

I have this one which reaches throughout the house (2000 sqfeet). It's a good buy.

Netgear, Inc WNR1000 - Best Buy

Thanks. The reach shall be equal or greater than the WRT54g. It does not need to cover great area... but it does need to go through concrete.

OK. I wanted to give an update. Will any of the routers posted be able to handle: 3 Media devices (Xbox 360, Wii U, Xbox One), 2 cellphones, and 5 computers?
