Or you could upgrade further than N
Netgear today announced its first 802.11ac-compatible Wi-Fi router, capable of delivering gigabit speeds up to three times faster than current 802.11n routers. Topping out at 1300 Mbps in 5 Ghz mode and 450 Mbps in 2.4 GHz, Netgear's R6300 router will launch next month at a price of $199.99.

Those are all good routers honestly.
Personally I'd favor the Asus b/c you can throw Tomato firmware onto it.. I'm just not a fan of the default firmware for any of these routers. Besides the Asus, the Netgear would be a good pick & supposedly will be able to support Tomato firmware in the future.
The Linksys won't support 3rd party firmware so I'd rule it out IMO, but otherwise should have good performance if you don't care about the firmware stuff. (For what it's worth I have the previous model of that one, the E4200 v1, & it does perform well).
I saw that Netgear has the new router coming out but like a lot of people here...not sure about getting the first generation of new products. I do like the asus one a lot...looks like dd-wrt would work like a charm on it
