Cable and DSL VPN

Answered Question

We have 2 office networks connected via Cisco 827 DSL routers. We are using IPSEC and 3DES. The networks are connecting privately through the VPN. We are going to re-locate one of the offices to an area that does not have DSL available, but does have Cable Access. My Question… What is needed/recommended at the new location that will allow us to re-connect the office networks and still use the Cisco 827 DSL at the other location? We would like to continue the same type of connectivity via a VPN solution.

You can use Cisco's UBR 905 cable modem which supports IPSEC now as well. Here is the url for more information on that

You may also wish to use the 806 broadband router which is a dual ethernet solution in case you decide to switch to dsl once it is available in that area. Or even the 3002 hardware client.

I suggest this because of lot more broadband providers won't support you if you don't have their cpe on the line.
