Router Recomendation Multi Wan

Hi All

can you recomend a router for me?

WAN1 > Dynamic IP > NAT > LAN1

WAN2 > 81.2.78.xx (static) > 178.238.157.xx/28

both WAN links are VDSL (FTTC) and so link to modems via PPPOE - can this be done on one port with VLANs?

i have been looking at the 1921, what i want is for the lan (general traffic) to leave via WAN1 and VoIP/Severs etc to leave VIA WAN2 but i want both networks to be aware of each other ie LAN1 to VOIP would not get routed via the WAN at all.

both links are 80/20mbps

Thanks All

I don't think the 1921 will be up to the job with those WAN links. Have a look at the Cisco router performance page:

For up to 200 Mbps of aggregate WAN bandwidth, Cisco would recommend something bigger than a 1921.

I've attached a Cisco ISR performance whitepaper.

Definately 1921 will do the job but as they come with 2 port you would need a HWIC card to connect it to LAN.

use PBR using ACL's and equal cost routes towards ISP to achieve traffic routing.

1921 can provide the physical connectivity but it won't shift that level of traffic at that rate.

Re: Router Recomendation Multi Wan

The FTTC will not achieve the desired rates of 80/20 both at the same times and nor does any provider guarantee that.

Thanks for the input all,

I do agree that for the most part the lines will not be maxed out. you have given me some points to consider.
