I have a better idea:

SmallNet Builder Router Chart

This is to my honest opinion "the overclock.net of networking". I run a DGL-4300 and the rest Engenius products for my home network. 6 years and counting no problems whatsoever!

This place will not dissapoint!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833162033 - Slightly above budget but well worth the extra 10 dollars.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320039 - Asus is always a good choice and it works with DD-WRT which is a plus. Best value option in my opinion.

I'd stay away from D-Link to be honest. Have had 2 routers from them, both returned within a week and their firmware to me isn't all that great.
