Hi,


Which router is better 891 or 892, what is the difference between them and which one is cheaper and by how much ?


My requirement is to run about 10-20 computers from each router.


Regards,



Mero

The difference between the two is the backup services.


892 has ISDN dial backup while the 891 is for V.92.


What to get depends entire upon what you require.

What are you trying to do?


My requirement is to run about 10-20 computers from each router.

890 has an 8-port switch so you'll need to buy a Layer-2 switch. 


If a router is what you need and you have a tight budget, try Cisco Refurbished.  How many VLANs are you planning to use?

3-4 VLANs only?  Try the 860.
