    Currently I have a Belkin router that is awful. It locks up randomly and needs to be rebooted daily to get a connection.

    I am in the market for a new wireless router and was thinking of the following

    Currently use the following devices:
    2 Airs, 2 PC's, Xbox, and wireless IP camera

    I would like to use the USB port to add a network drive until I can add a Synology NAS.

    Any thoughts or suggestions on a new wireless router?

    Should be fine. The only thing you might want to check is if that router offers QoS or if it is flashable with DD-WRT to get QoS controls. You'll probably want it for your XBox.

    Get a netgear modem/router and then an apple airport extreme, works fantastically for me

    The linsys one on your link should work fine to do what you want and they're not hard to set up. I have set few of these up with out issue, for a mid range device they are ok.
