    Get anything that supports OpenWRT: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/start

    Once you go OpenWRT you never go back to stock junkware. I just got into using it this month, and it's amazing.

    Problem being, the "attackers" may be the ISPs themselves, sometimes as proxy for government snooping requirements, and/or for marketing purposes. And they do not necessarily allow replacement of their routers, so that installing your own (however nominally secure) in front only partially addresses the problems involved.
