It's likely the thing is physically damaged in one way or another, as the modem was killed, I'm sure it could have effected the router as well.

What's your ISP advertised and actual speed?

Could've, but give it a try. Who knows?

The only benefit of gigbit is
-LAN transfers
-If your ISP package is over 100 mbit

900 KB/sec equates roughly to 7.2 mbit.
Gigabit is 1000 mbit

Oh my yes.

Assuming your contracted speed exceeds the outside interface on your router (as another member pointed out). Fiber is capable of SONET (very, very fast) speeds, so we cannot answer your question unless you tell us what your contracted speed is.

You are going to have tradeoffs if all of your criteria need to be met. To get N, you will need to increase your budget.

For gigabit speeds, you will (probably) need to increase your budget.

Most routers now come with at least 4 switch ports so that should not be an issue, and wireless of some frequency is almost a given.

A little out of your budget, but you cannot go wrong with this, however as people have mentioned with just a little effort you can flash an older router with the same image. If it is too out of your budget, look for the same, or similar, model on eBay or Craigslist.

Are you really going to try to convince the guy he needs gigabit on the WAN and then tell him to get a router that can only handle ~50 mbps of WAN->LAN throughput?

Not at all, I simply stated we cannot answer his (if it is a guy) question if he does not tell us what the contracted speed is. Not sure where you perceived that I am trying to convince him of anything, perhaps if you explained yourself a bit more?

As for the router, it is a standard that satisfies most-to-all people who use it.
