I am looking to replace a Cisco 837 ADSL router for one of the newer 850 or 870 series ADSL routers and can't find a definitive list of features between the 2 platforms. Can some one point me to a URL that compares the features between the two or maybe just list what the 877 has over the 857?
After a bit more searching (I haven't quite got the hang of the new format website...) I did find that comparison page.
I have come to the conclusion that both the 857 and the 877 are very similar products (with some memory upgrade limitations with the 850 series). However the 850 series only has Advanced Security IOS available whilst the 870 has Advanced Security and Advanced IP Services. Adv. IP Services seems to have OSPF but Advanced Security doesn't. Can anyone confirm this?
Thanks for the replies. It's all clear now. I think the comparison between the Soho 9x and 83x summed it up. It would have been nice if Cisco would have made this comparison in the product descriptions.
I have ordered the 877 since this gives me the most flexibility.
