I think you can use just about any.
There was a guy who posted that he bought 3 of these for a DGL-4500 and worked great for him:

It should be noted that both of those antennas appear to only offer a boost on the 2.4Ghz network.  The DIR-825 router 5.0Ghz wireless network radio "might" not benefit from those antennas.

It was noted by the user at that had put this on a 5 Ghz router and didnt' see any issues when using them on the 5Ghz range.  ;)
