Those are all really similar and since I wouldn't personally pick a netgear or D-link router I'd suggest linksys (Linksys by Cisco WAG160N-UK 300Mbps Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem/Router [WAG160N-UK]) but if you want one of those in your list I'd go with the D-Link

It adds about 100ms, a ton of packetloss, and random dropouts.

Utter rubbish.

Try getting a second hand DG834GT for around £30, There was one on MM for £15. Setup a static IP for the PS3 and put in DMZ. Put on DGTEAM firmware aswell.
