Miguel,

If you only want to use a fastethernet to be a wan interface then 851w is fine for home-use.Cisco 2620XM will provide you WIC slots and a network module.You can add any WAN interfaces in it but you have to separately purchase all of them.

for home use will i need any wic??? or module?? beside a switch module that has the 851w included...??

Re: 851w vs 2620XM

Miguel,

It depends on the media that ISP provides to you in your country. 851w provides you a fastethernet to be a wan interface. Just in case you want to change the media to be ADSL,Lease-Line then cisco 851w router will not give you to do that. Cisco 2620xm will do. That's why cisco 800 series give us many wan types.

Re: 851w vs 2620XM

Miguel,

If that's currently a wan interface type then cisco 851w is fine to be used.

Thanks for providing the important information

Re: 851w vs 2620XM

so in your opinion the 851 will be a better solution than a 2620xm? even though i has less memory?? is there any benefits buying the 2620xm for "home use"

pst: i have 2 servers inside my house...

Re: 851w vs 2620XM

Miguel,

I think that can handle for 2 servers and 20Mb of the wan link.
