Need help on deciding on a wireless router

Hey guys.
So, more and more, I find myself using devices that NEEDS a wireless connection. So, I was thinking of buying a wireless router. We already have a router, but it's wired only. The one I was eye-ing was this one :

Newegg.ca - Rosewill RNX-N150RT IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE802.11n Draft 2 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates 1 x 10/100M WAN; 4 x 10/100 LAN

Now, you might say "Why not go with this one? It has features x and y!". The thing is that I don't want any extra features... I only need those basic needs : firewall, wired network, wireless network + security and DNS settings (for OpenDNS). What the wireless will be for is... to connect my Nintendo 3DS. Yes, a Nintendo 3DS. Not a laptop or other computer. So I don't need Tomato or whatever other 3rd party firmware.

So, advices?

Thanks!

P.S Budget is 40-45$

That one is not true wireless N @ 150 mbps, you should look for one that is capable of 300 Mbps, especially for online game play...

Uh... OK... But, hum, can you find one under 45$ (tax + shipping incl.)? A reliable one?
At the same time, I highly doubt I will fully use a 300mbps wireless connection. My Internet connection is 30mbps :\
