Can't help you there, I got FIOS. They give you a special router for it.

Looking at your choices listed, I'd go for the EA 3500 myself.

Both of those are fine. Also check out the Netgear equivalents.

Any new router over the price of about 80 will be good. It's not really a big deal which model.

This.

I agree, Netgear makes good stuff too. I used to be a fan of D-Link but they had too many quirky hardware revisions for the last router I owned.

I got my hands on the newest Verizon-supplied router and am sticking with that for my FiOS service. It's got GigE ports, and 802.11n wireless. I don't need anything fancy.

I don't trust netgear from personal experience but linksys/cisco is good. Also look into Asus (which I own and I'm currently loving because it can work as a print server and NAS) or any other router that can be flashed with DD-WRT.

The IT guy at work recommended a Cisco. Its for regular home use: laptop desktop, DVR, Internet TV, iPhone.

I was thinking the EA2700 or EA2500. Any tips, opinions, comments would be appreciated.
All the big brands (Netgear, D-link, Belkin, Linksys, Cisco (Which is Linksys) are literally all the same. Like Don said, get a decent wireless N router and you will be good to go.

Good thing you have that 1000Mbps port to help get your less then 50Mbps worth of bandwidth. :action-sm
