I have a scenario where I have a PBX ( on the Lan of the router.

Wan 1 has an internal address of my customers network and is connected to his switch, his mail server is on this local network @ (

Wan 2 has a public IP in it and is connected to a DSL modem.

All I want to do is from my PBX ( send all the SMTP traffic port 25 directly out Wan 1 and to his mail server.

Everything else I want to go out WAN 2 to the internet (SIP Trunks etc.)

Linksys said I need a router that does Protocol BInding which the RV042 does not do and cannot achieve.

Any preference/recommendation between the RV016 or the SA520 Cisco? Both are Dual WAN. Do both do protocol binding or a form of it that will work?

Sombody must have experience with both and can give me a recommendation.

The SA520 definitely has protocol binding and it works great.  I don't have any experience with the RV016.
