I have two routers with me. Cisco 1841 and Cisco 1812. I want only ethernet to be present for the requirement. No serial interface is required.
I am comparing the performance only to decide.
I am seeing in the datasheets of Cisco 1812 Router stating 100 Mbps forwarding traffic performance. Another Cisco Router 1841 having the performance of 200 Mbps.
How to choose which router to implement provided i have 50 users in the LAN.
Can you please help me to know this
Well for 50 to 100 users, i would say go for the 2801 to 2811.
Basically it will depend how will you use the router if your Internet bandwidth is 10 to 20Mbits 2801 will work fine with NAT, but at the mean time you will perform Intervlan routing with It between 50 to 100 users, its performance will degrade as more and more intervlan traffic will increase.
so As Joseph described it very well, you must plan your bandwidth requirments you need to route between router, then from pdf file of routerperformance decide which router should you go for, remember in your bandwidth plan you should consider all traffic which will be transiting router.
