Modem to update Verizon Fios Connection

Having trouble with endless wifi buffering recently and am still using my 8-year-old original modem/router from Verizon when my Fios was installed. Verizon recommends their G1100 dual-band Gateway, that has terrible reviews on Amazon.

Is there anyone out there who has purchased a better modem/router that will work with Verizon Fios? I searched through the posts, and couldn't find any recommendations. I don't want to buy one (or get it from Verizon for $10/month) if it's not going to improve my connection. I currently pay for the 75/75 plan.

I would recommend seeing if they can enable the ethernet port on your ONT. Then go with an Asus nighthalk or if you don't mind some setup get ubiquity wireless gear with their controller.

This is what I do and I get 600-850MB/s all over my house.

Thanks so much for responding!

Will the Asus Nighthalk need special programming to attach to Fios, or does it come as a Verizon version?
