I am looking for a hard wired no wi-fi router but I do not know what specs I need to look for, I will get the 50 meg Verizon fios to start and I will run cat 6a to the ont either port. I use bittorent so I will have a lot of simultaneous connections maybe 250 or more and watch vids. I am looking at these units but I do not know what is the most reliable and easiest to configure.
