What is wrong with your current Netgear?
The AE is an excellent router.
I use my TC as my router - works far better than the Netgeat N600 I have also. The Netgear is just being used as a modem for the TC now.
I have the DG834 is it? Needs to be PPoEE or summin, which it isn't
Oh, you have a modem/router combination. If you're getting fiber to the home you'll probably get some kind of modem from the provider which you'll then connect to whatever router you get. The AEBS is fine, but pricey compared to routers that'll give you essentially the same performance.
