None of them.

Wireless is unpredictable in terms of actual speed of throughput and latency.

Agreed if seeking low latency for gaming, avoid wireless in the first instance.

You need to use the virgin device in its modem mode, i.e. to do the cable to ethernet conversion, but otherwise the Asus RT-N66U is a fast popular device and has various firmware options available. e.g. Merlin Firmware adds DNS based parental controls that you can enable for specific devices.

TPLink kit can be cheaper for a similar spec, but the web interfaces are not as slick or as well featured.
