Before making any investment on new hardware may you consider made some troubleshooting:

- Are ISP working fine?
- Maybe some internal equipment are failing? switches, maybe any wire between devices...
- There is any firmware update for this equipment?

After doing this and determine your routers are failing, make first list with requirements:

- How many tunnels require.
- How many traffic flow on tunnels
- That ISP and technology uses, this may vary your final decision.
- Do you require any additional features? Cache, full inspection packet, filtering content...

With this list may help you on a better way.

Assuming that the checks the other experts suggests pan out, we have had great luck with Cisco VPN devices at the remote end coming into a Cisco VPN concentrator at the central office location. We are starting to move away from the VPN concentrator to our ASA, but we are keeping the remote devices. Cisco has different devices depending on the connectivity at the remote end, but we typically use Cisco 800 series devices.
