Frontier FIOS problems. Service, router, or...?

We recently moved and chose Frontier (formerly Verizon) FIOS for our Internet service since the other option was Comcast. The service is the lowest tier (50/50) but we were coming from DSL with lower speeds and it was fine so we were expecting it to be OK. And it is. Sometimes. Other times it is really slow to unusable. Like, the airport on my Mac won't even connect to the router sometimes. Sometimes it will connect but I have to wait 2-4 minutes for an URL I typed in to load. Sometimes it goes up and down, disconnectng and reconnecting our wifi devices every few minutes. And other times, like right now, it's absolutely fine. [more inside]

How do I monitor net usage in terms of GB/month?

I need to monitor the bandwidth use at home, in terms of GB per month. The trick: I have a TV that has built-in wireless Netflix capabilities, and I think streaming HD shows are eating GB/month more than I realize. [more inside]

Can my ISP force me to buy their branded router?

I currently use AT&T as our broadband ISP at home. Our five-year-old modem/router just died, and since it's so old, AT&T tells me that it's no longer under warranty, and I have to buy a new one myself. Then they directed me to an AT&T Wireless retail store to go buy the equipment. But can they force me to buy one of their routers? What if I can find a comparable one cheaper somewhere else? Can they refuse me customer service or deny me installation help (which I will need - I'm hopelessly n00bulous in this department) if I don't by an "official" AT&T router? [more inside]

All sorts of WiFi connectivity issues. I think it's my router.

After 4 months of smooth sailing, my WiFi has started acting up and (first temperamental page loading; then lock icon disappears when connecting to my secure network; now work computer won't connect at all). Is it my ISP, router, computer, or something else? [more inside]

To match modem/router vendors or to not match?

Is there any advantage to having a router and cable modem made by the same company, or is it better to go best of breed in both cases regardless of maker? [more inside]
