The rpi is a little anemic (especially given "fiber" connectivity).  If
you're looking for a debian-based box, why not something like a Ubiquiti
EdgeRouter?  I've used them all over the place - quite solid little
units, most of them are a steal at twice the price.

Granted, they're somewhat geared towards "businesses", and so don't come
with wifi built in. You could add a UniFi access point, or if having an
"all-in-one" solution is desired, their more "consumer-oriented" AmpliFi
line may be a good fit.
