I like the Linksys better than the others, since the adapter is on a cable you have the option of moving it around. USB adapters ain't that flexible. If your going to be gaming run a cable.

In my household,there are many devices connected both wirelessly and wired -- three wireless printers, 4 TiVo DVR's (using TiVo Wireless-g USB adapters), 2 desktop computers using Belkin USB wireless-n adapters, a PS/3 and a Wii, both wireless-g, 2 laptops with USB wireless g adapters and an HP desktop with builtin wireless-n router, along with TV's and Blu-ray players, both wired and wireless. The Netgear router handles all with aplomb. Most use the 2 GHz radio, while my primary PC uses the 5 GHz radio and a Netgear WNDA3100 dual band wireless-n USB adapter..
Almost any brand of USB adapter should work for you, from Belkin, Cisco, D-Link, Netgear or TrendNet. To keep things simple, if your current router is wireless-g, then get a wireless-g adapter. If it's wireless-n, get a dual band wireless-n USB adapter (even if the router is single band,aa dual band adapter will work fine).

Or pickup a cheap re-furb N router that supports dd-wrt and make a bridge out of it.
