No.

As you mentioned you have some 2600 routers.  That's a good start.  Otherwise you need to fork out some cash for 850/870 routers.

The 2600's are 4 x serial units with one 56k card. What would you expect to pay for used 850? Thanks

What would you expect to pay for used 850?

1.  I have no idea what you plan to do but do you know that 850-series do not support multiple VLANs?

2.  This will depend on what WAN port is.  851 is a 10/100 WAN port and the 857 is an ADSL 2+ port.  The latter is very expensive ... above AU$300 .
