    I'm looking to get FIOS with 25/25 and iIm currently running a Buffalo WHR-G54S with Tomato using QOS for my VOIP ATA, SSH for remote tunnel/proxy, CIFS, and some custom scripts to filter out ads. I do alot of torrent DLs and will be using the DMZ port for the Verizon router for the STBs, VOD, guide data, etc.

    Knowing I won't get the throughput on the Buffalo, what's a model with a good CPU/RAM combo that could handle this load? Thanks

    I'm using a Linksys... WRT54G-TM with Tomato Firmware v1.25.8515.2 RAF ND...
    I'm on Verizon FIOS too, with 20 Down and 5 Up... Have install many with the 25/25 connections no issues...

    USE... OPENDNS, it will become your friend too!!!

    OPEN a DMZ STATIC IP on the supplied router from Verizon & TURN OFF their wireless device...

    Check out my signature... It says it all:clap2:

    Your Buffalo router will get NAT'd (LAN-> WAN & WAN -> LAN) maximum throughput of approx. 55 Mbps. This should be plenty to handle your current connection. However if you're jones'ing for an upgrade, the Netgear WNR3500L runs Tomato, has gigabit LAN & WAN, and a 480Mhz processor with 64MB RAM that will achieve NAT'd throughput of about 300Mbps. If you want to research other routers, try the following link...

    There is also the ASUS RT-N16, but a friend of mine got it and it had bad overheating problems, he sent it back.

    I also second the opendns suggestion above.
