Looking for some router recommendations for a budget-minded K-8 school having about 150 students, maybe 250 total devices (when you add up access points, computers, devices/phones etc).  Most connections will be to one of 20 OpenMesh A60 access points that are gigabit wired to 5 new Cisco SG250-26P (Gb PoE switches).  They have Verizon Fios 150 Mbps service on the WAN side.  The current, supposedly business-grade, router that Verizon sold the school is grossly under-powered and buggy.  New router just needs to have basic features such as port forwarding, basic firewall, LAN & WAN management GUI etc.  Nothing too fancy (no AV)...
