Dear Bruce Rockwell,

Okay, as per my knowledge it will work fine, but requesting you please consider the feature expansion, if required. Also suggesting you before go for that please consult your local Cisco Vendor / sell partner.

Hi,

You can match the requirement to the bellow link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps5855/prod_brochure0900aecd8019dc1f.pdf

&

http://www.ciscowebtools.com/productadvisor/routers.asp

Please note if you think for Gigabit Eth then go for Cisco 2821[Integrated services router with AC power, 2GE, 1 NME-X, 1 EVM, 4 HWICs, 3 PVDM slots, 2 AIMs, and Cisco IOS IP Base Software], else can go for Cisco 1841[Modular router with 2 WAN slots, desktop form factor chassis, IP BASE Cisco IOS Software image, 2 Fast Ethernet slots, 32-MB Flash, and 128-MB DRAM]. Also Cisco 2801 and 2811 matches your requirement. Check your budget before you jump. J

Thanks

Hi goutam,

thank you for the first link that was very helpful.

now i am just trying to make sure that the 1811 can sufficiently handle 50 internal users with up to 100 remotely logging in. do you have any advice?

Re: 1811 vs. 1841?

hi goutam it looks like i'll need to pick up the 1pt fast ethernet card if i was going to go with the 1841. I'm thinking the 1811 looks like a better choice, sounds like it can do load-balancing much easier. still having trouble identifying how many users it can support though

Re: 1811 vs. 1841?

Hi, Is that site-to-site or remote? Connection or tunnel? Please come back with more specific details. Thanks Goutam.[pls rate helpful posts]

Re: 1811 vs. 1841?

hi there are 40 tunnels (remote branches that have only 1 computer each and a basic linksys router/firewall)

internally there are 35 users.

looking at the spec sheets i think I will be OK with the 1811 but please confirm and let me know if you don't think it will work.

thank you

Bruce
