Which router 827 or 831 ???

I have a Windows 2000 network with 1 Server and 3 workstations. They are all connected via SBC DSL line. I want to get a router that will work with the SBC DSL and I was looking into the 827 or 831. Am I correct that the 831 is just the updated 827 and if so will either of them work for this setup?

Could you please offer any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi

I believe the 827 has an ethernet connection for your inside network and one ADSL WAN interface (usually an ATM interface).

Whereas the 831 has an ethernet connection for your inside network and another ethernet connection for your WAN interface (this then would plug into a secondary router (ADSL capable.)

The 837 is the update of the 827.

Hope this helps

Also, could I possibly use a 2505 with the DSL modem? Please help.

Has anyone used the 827 or 837 before and if so how do you like it?
