Good Wireless Router?

I'm shopping around for a good Wireless Router to connect to my desktop + work wirelesslely for my Mac's, any suggestions? Right now I have the Linksys WRT110 - had it for about almost 2years now, been working good but looking to upgrade. I'm looking for something with the same N speed.

Any help - trying to get something that works flawlessly and doesn't loose signal. I find that the WRT110 that I have loses signal on and off consistantly, not sure why, I tried fixing everything on different channels that's wireless in my house, not even tech support helped me, so looking to upgrade

I am so pleased with my Belkin N1 Vision router that I would like to recommend it to anybody needing a good, reliable and stable WiFi router.

Just out of curiosity, where in your house is your router? Could it be that objects are blocking the signal?

I had a similar problem with the computer in the bedroom. I solved the problem by replacing the antenna on the back of the computer with an antenna I could place on the top of the desk. Signal strength increased and no more lost signal.

I hear quite good things about the Draytek wireless routers, not the cheapest but excellent quality.

In terms of price the cheapest N router (and most Mac compatible router simply because it is made by Apple) is the Airport Express which costs CA$99. I don't know whether or not you would even consider this because its only port is ethernet and thus does not support ADSL without a separate hub. I happen to have one as my secondary router (I have big, thick stone walls in my house) and it hasn't failed me yet.

If you are having problems with connectivity in your house, why not give an ethernet over power line adapter a go?
I currently use one as my main means of connecting to the internet and I have found there is no loss of ping speed or Mb/s compared to conventional ethernet. Also like me if you attach your Airport Express to this you could centralize your wireless router with no new cabling and only 3 more plug sockets used up.
