Router Throughput with ADSL2+

Answered Question
Mar 8th, 2010

I've got an ADSL2+ Annex M broadband connection from which I'm currently getting about 18mb down and 2.2mb up.

I've got a series of routers/PIX which I want to put behing the ADSL modem and wondering which set-up will give me the best throughput. I'm predomintly going to be using the modem for static NAT and occassional EasyVPN Server connections.

I'm going to be connecting about 4 computers and a Slingbox media streamer.

1. 1721/1751 or 1760 with WIC-4ESW.

2. 2651 with 2900 switch.

3. PIX501

I know the 2651 is the better machine, but want to keep the components to a minimum, so one of the 1700 series or PIX501 would be my preference provided they dont throttle down my ADSL connection - I'm aware that this will probably happen when using the VPN facilities of the routers.

PS, the 1700 series have a MOD1700 VPN card installed and the 2651 has a AIM-VPN/EP card installed.

Does anyone have any experience or give guidence.

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

See the attached PDF for the actual numbers. The 1700 series can not handle 18mb of traffic, but the 2651 can. I doubt a PIX501 can either.


Hope it helps.
