My post may seem childish, please forgive me, this is my first attempt at Cisco.
I upgraded my home account to have 8 Static IPs, and my current NetGear router is only supporting NAT, thus it isnt a real router for more than 1 static IP. I would like to get an entry level Router, but dont know what to get. I am looking for used items at beginning, and later if I learn more, I may buy some nicer model.
So far I have been lookint at the 827 and 837. My questions are as follows:
I have a regulas ADSL at home which requires a regular PPOE signin over RADIUS. I do have a modem, so a normal router would be enough, or a router with modem feature would be also good. An 827 is a Router with ADSL modem, right? If I understood correctly.
My goal is to have my Internet come in, then the Router would have my first IP (after the Netword ID IP), and the rest of IPs would be going through the router, and land on my servers. I have a few Debian Mail, WWW, FTP, DNS servers at home I would like to start using. They are built, so only the router is left.
Please, if its not too much trouble, give me a few advices. I know I am not in the league yet, but I would like to get started.
