Define "cheap".

What kind of throughput do you want? What kind of WAN is going to be connected (xDSL, Cable, leased line, frame relay)?

For a typical home DSL installation, you can get by with an 887, but for nowhere near as cheap as, say, a Linksys or Billion or DLink consumer grade device.

Define "3 fastethernet ports"?

Do you want 3 Layer 2 only ports (with or without PoE) or 3 Layer 3 ports?

Low end Router with 3 Fast ethernet ports

Hi all,

currently i have router with 2 fast ethernet ports

1 port connects to cable modem.

Other has connection to layer 3 switch.

I am running HSRP  on 2 layer 3 switches.

But i have single connection from layer 3 switch to Router port.

I need router with  3 ports so that 2 ports can connect to 2 layer 3 switches.

Currently port that connects layer 3 switch to router is routed port.

Thats the reason i am looking for Router with 3 fast ethernet ports.

Thanks

Re: Low end Router with 3 Fast ethernet ports

If you want want Layer 2 only ports, then the 860 and 880 are starters.

If you want Layer 3 ports then 1900 ISR G2 has two routable FE ports, you just need to get an HWIC-1FE to make it the 3rd routable FE ports.
