Do I need a new router?

I have an HP Slimline s3700y, with 2.60 GHz dual core processor, 3.00 GB RAM and running Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit). My desktop is hard-wired to internet through Comcast high speed modem (DPC3000), which I just checked for connection speed (download 35.55 Mbps / upload 6.43 Mbps). I'm currently using a 5-year old WRT54G v5 Linksys wireless router (802.11g) for my home network which I use only for peripherals (laptop).
My question is whether or not I need to upgrade my router? Would this improve wireless internet connection for my laptop. I've also got an iPad(WiFi) on the way. Is my current router sufficient for this device?
