    Verizon Fios Quatum Gateway Router: is it worth $150?

    Not sure if it's better to post this here, or in the Blind Leading the Stupid forum:   At any given time, we're running wifi on four iPads, three laptops, three Roku, and a desktop PC or two.  We do have existing hardwired ethernet going to a number of rooms (I'll run the HTPC hardwired, as well...
