Thought we had this discussion a couple of weeks ago. You aren't
"routing" or "firewalling" anything at a 1Gb unless you are dropping
lots of dollars, or dropping a multi-core PCI-e box with a few Gb of RAM.
For *routing* 1 Gb at line speed, and SG300-10 switch will forward 100
IP addresses in hardware at line rate. I suspect from the rest of
your question you want a NAT/WiFi integrated device. I generally
recommend separating your device functions. Use a *wired*
firewall/NAT/Router device and use an Access Point. Expecting 1Gb
routing/firewalling/NATing throughput on a "consumer broadband router"
is kinda like expecting that 1908 Model T to get on I-75 and get up to
