Default Good Router?

Hey guys, I recently switced my computer network usb adapters from D-link to Linksys and my signal went up 1-2 bars instantly. I still have the old Lynksis G router and I'm looking to upgrade to an N router?
After doing some research this is the router I have in mind
STAPLES | BUREAU EN GROS

I called Lynkssys yesterday and they said if I buy an N router my speed and distance will be significantly stronger? Is this actually true? And is the router above any good? OR are the any better ones you can recommend?

Thx In advance,

PS: I did a lot of research and I really could not find any high rated lynksis routers, all routers had mixed reviews on them.

If you upgrade your router to an N router, you have to make sure you also have an N wireless card.

Well you can use a N router with a G card but you will not get the highest speeds of 108. You will be capped at a max of 54. For Internet the speed difference will not matter. For file transfers it will.

I cannot see the router in question as it is asking me for a Canadian postal code to ship to.

D-Link is my favorite brand at the moment.
