I currenty have a pix with a single wan. We have 7 Vlans going into the pix. I need a new router/firewall that supports multiple WAN links with support for Vlans On a signle port and least cost routing so we can use the appropriate wan link most of the time per Vlan but have traffice switch to the backroute in the event of a failure.

I have not used cisco equipment for 5 years but the customer prefers cisco.

Since your network is a small one,cisco 800 series router should be able to support the WAN and the LAN connections you want.

Most users prefer cisco equipments basically because of its operatabilties and support.

Cisco equipments are good, use them.

Be aware that 850 routers don't support vlan at all while the 870 series routers requires the advanced IP services images for support of up to 4 VLAN.

A more balanced choice whould be a 1800 or 2800 series.

Hope you will be an happy customer back to cisco.

Hope this helps, if so please rate post!
