Recommendation for router to replace Cisco 837

We are presently using a Cisco 837 unit to connect up to the Internet using Singtel's bizlink service. We have a new requirement to segment our office LAN into 4 subnets.

We are also planning to introduce VPN services for our laptop users.

Please recommend us a model that will satisfy the above requirement.

Re: Recommendation for router to replace Cisco 837

Hi,

the Cisco 850 Series and 1800 Series allows VLAN configuration and IPSec tunnels. Have a look at f.e. "Cisco 850 Series and Cisco 870 Series Access Routers Software Configuration Guide"

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps380/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a008045d273.html

"Cisco 1800 Series Integrated Services Routers (Fixed) Software Configuration Guide"

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5853/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a008045827f.html

You would then need additionally a LAN switch, which is dot1q capable, like the Catalyst 2950.

Hope this helps! Please rate all posts.

Regards, Martin
