Default Need a new gigabit router

Ok so I have a Dlink DGL-4300 "Gaming" router. The reason I got it in the first place (about a year and a half ago) was because it was relatively cheap and had gigabit ethernet. I transfer quite a lot of data between my linux server, HTPC, and main desktop so I'd like to stay with gigabit ethernet.

My problem is that this stupid router has started rebooting itself when under a load. Sometime, even reboots when just sitting there. This is particularly frustrating because it happens every 30 min or so when I'm downloading torrents. The other day it completely reset itself, like everything set to factory defaults. I hadn't backed up my settings in a few months so I had to redo them all (port forwarding and stuff for torrents and my ftp server)

So, I need a new router. Something of good quality. It does NOT have to be wireless, I can hook up my old router and use it as a wireless access point for my laptop to use.

Is this one any good?

All opinions welcome. Thanks!
