Recommendation of wifi AP

Our current WiFi APs (D-Link DAP-2553, and Linksys WAP4400N) are the kind available from the local Bestbuy store and are for home users I believe. They will intermittently shut down by themselves. They are cheap and at low end.
In our office the WiFi is for mobile devices and a small number of laptops. Even the utilization is not high but we just cannot stand the unliable AP shutting down by itself. Can you recommend some higher end of WiFi APs with more reliability?

For business I recommend:

1:  Cisco WAP321 Wireless Access Point

2:LG-Ericsson 802.11n Dual Band Dual Radio Wireless Access Point

These are business quality AP's,they are not cheap but  both very reliable.

Hi Castlewood,

For business I'd recommend SonicWALL SonicPoint - they are robust & very secure they have PoE options when they are in locations where electricity does not or cannot exist. https://www.sonicwall.com/us/en/products/Clean_Wireless_Series.html#tab=Compare

NETGEAR is another option. In my opinion a distant second: http://www.netgear.com/business/products/access-points-wireless-controllers/access-points/default.aspx
