Help me choose my next wireless router.

We have had a D-Link DIR-655 for the last three or four years, and have been reasonably happy with it. Over the past week, it has been dropping connection at least once an evening, sometimes more. I've checked the D-Link forums, and it looks like upgrading the firmware has a low chance of fixing the issue (and comes with its own set of possible problems), so I am considering buying a new wireless router.
Our previous router was a Linksys, and I wasn't very happy with the reliability. D-Link has been rock solid until now, but I don't know if there are any other brands I should be considering.
We don't have that many systems connecting - typically only a couple of laptops and a tablet, but occasionally we have more folks over to the house and may run up to 5 systems at once.
Thanks for any recommendations -- both pro or con.
