850 or 870 series router is a low end model but will do.

Thank you for your reply ,i have seen the data sheet of 800 series router ,it is given that recommended number of users are 10.But i have 32 users. Can you please tell me other options.

The 800-series router is already End-Of-Sale. The 850/870 are the new generations of ISR's and these should be able to handle IPSec/VPN for 32 or more users without any hassles.

However, if you are still interested in slightly higher, please refer to the following links:

Your performance is likely to be limited by the bandwidth of your ADSL. As long as the router effectively supports that much bandwidth, shouldn't matter whether there are 1 or 10,0000 users. (Of course, the more users, less bandwidth each gets if fairly shared. So, for more bandwidth, for more users, bigger router. [If you wonder how much bandwidth should be available per user, "that depends".])
