comment VPN Router Recommendations?
Considering that the original poster is replacing a Linksys router for his home network, almost any router appliance that supports VPN is going to be more expensive. A quick google search suggests that the Draytek Vigor 2910 will run around $200, way above a replacement Linksys. Also, having dealt with multiple software VPN's (IPSec, SSL, and "other") on Windows, Linux, and OS X, and hardware VPN appliances from Ciscto, Juniper, and others, I would definitely not say that a hardware solution is necessarily simpler or easier to debug. It depends on the device and what you're trying to do.

It's true that OpenVPN isn't trivial to setup, but it easier than most of the alternatives out there (while still doing an excellent job of being secure). As for what to do if you're replacing your router, it's really up to you. I'd go with a mid-to-lower end router and either run dd-wrt or just setup the router to pass through a port to a machine on my netowrk and run OpenVPN on that machine.
