Can anyone recommend me a wifi router/LAN splitter, with LAN ports that can hit 1.5Gbps?

    So, I just got a new apartment, and I was able to get a new ISP that offered 1.5Gbps, so I upgraded my package to 1.5Gbps. However, for some dumb reason my Asus RT-N66U routers can only hit 800mbps over LAN (I have read it's a problem with them), so I'm looking to upgrade. What is the new hot wifi router/LAN splitter that can hit 1.5Gbps over LAN? What are you guys using?
    I have already upgraded my NICs and ran Cat6, the new router is the last step in my new network.

    You want a >1Gbps router?

    How is the connection from the ISP provided?

    Well any consumer firewall these days might get you 1Gb, but not higher. You'd need a 10Gb or Multi-Gig interface to go above that. I've never seen an ISP offer that before.

    Sounds like a perfect time to build your own pfsense box with dual 10gbe ports (supermicro makes some good boards in mitx format / 1u rack size).
