Just moved to VF 130/10, however my existing router has 100mb ports and the new one has GbE, the new one works OK but falls over every week or so.

Any recommendations for a replacement? No voip needed.

Stable with a tonne of traffic, wireless traffic is heavy as there are multiple cameras on the network.
GbE ports (4+)
Port forwarding
Wifi N or better

Any opinions on Linksys WRT1900AC?

If you've got heavy wireless performance your best option is to forget about using WiFi in the router for a start - multiple WiFi APs are always going to be the best approach.

The hardest thing these days is finding a good router. If you have VFX with WXC you could get their Audiocodes MP264 - mine goes months without a restart and it's pretty solid. Not the easiest to configure but once done, it just works...

Mikrotik RB951G-2HnD. IIRC they're about $100 and are very high performing, just a bit to setup since there are so many options.
