Help me find the best router with some specific requirements

I currently have all my non-portable Netflix devices hardwired to my router, but I'm moving to a house where that won't be possible. I hate to say goodbye, but the trusty WRT54G will have to go. Help me find the best replacement router.

We have multiple devices that may be streaming HD content simultaneously. It's a single story house with a pretty open floorplan. Here's what I'm looking for:
- Simultaneous dual band capability
- VPN passthrough
- 2+ ethernet ports
- Reliable wireless (some models seem prone to dropping connections and/or constantly renegotiating speed)
- Some sort of guest/DMZ mode
- Good QOS
- Ability to flash Tomato
- Parental controls
Anyone have success with a router than meets these criteria?
