Updating router can be done by logging in to the router's internal settings (GUI). This will allow you to upgrade your hardware's firmware up to the latest version. This does not guaranteed better connections but at least, it'll be compatible with the newer wireless adapter and it's software components.

Logging in to the router's GUI by opening up your browser, then type the default's gateway of the router.
 
An example of router's GUI is shown in the picture below.
Linksys

 

Go to 192.168.1.1
Log-in with the use of router's credential
Once log-in, go to Administration
Then you can upgrade the Firmware version.
 
This is the process of updating the firmware. This will only eliminate possible incompatibility issue between router's wireless connection and the wireless adapter's latest version.
Linksys WRT54GL

The newer and one of the best router available is Linksys WRT54GL. This is compatible with Linux operating system and it has wider bandwidth of wireless signal. This newer modem can be emphasized in making home wireless networking, easier access and easy set-up, can be done in five minutes.

You should first know that process of upgrading the firmware of your router is risky, and it may void your warranty. Besides that, when you complete that process, you are not guaranteed that you will have better speed, quality of connection, etc. Check firmware update details on the web-site of manufacturer of your router to see is it worth of updating.

Other top home wireless routers are:

Asus RT-N66U (Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router) 

D-Link DIR-645 Wireless N Router (with SmartBeam™ technology that extends the coverage of your wireless network)

TP-Link TL-WR1043ND (300Mb/s wireless N 2.4Ghz firewall router)
