RV320 and/or ISA500

Hello all,

We currently use a RV320 router with dual WAN (Fiber and COAX) to connect to the internet, this same router also functions as DHCP/DNS for all the LAN clients and connects everything to the internet fine.

Now I was looking through all cisco products and also saw the new ISA500 security appliance series but what i fail to understand is what the difference is between a ISA500 and RV320 router? Looks to me ISA can do about the same as the RV?

And if it's not the same, how would you use both in a environment? What do you use as what and connect what to what?

Thank you!

The ISA500 series has been discontinued :-( despite being terrific product line.

How many LAN clients do you have and do you intend to do VPN?  The RV320 is basically a new version of the well proven RV042/RV042G so depending on the # of clients you have I'm betting you'll have a good experience with it.  There are references to a larger cousin to the RV320 on so I'm guessing that's coming shortly.
