Recommendation for WAN router

Unanswered Question

I'm looking for a recommendation on the best (cheapest) router for connecting 2 offices via a LAN extension link (10mbps). Obviously the router will need 2x 10Mbps ethernet ports and also needs to support QoS. I was thinking of cisco 851s, but before I spend the money I was wondering if these are the best routers for the job.

Any thoughts much appreciated!

You can use an 871 or a 1801 for this.

The 851 does not support QoS as well some other features that are useful for professional results.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
