Look at a Cisco 2900. It's not the most powerful router in the router, but you're only looking for 2MB speed, and since you only have around 4 switches, it will be more than enough to allow for growth.

For 2M

1800 or 2900 works, unless you want some other features now or in the future you may need to check each Datasheet

Hi,

I would suggest a 2911 router works for you.

All onboard WAN ports are 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet WAN routed ports.

It have high-speed WAN interface card (HWIC) slots while provide maximum investment protection by natively supporting HWICs, WAN interface cards

The Cisco 2911 ISR is highly modular platforms with several types of module slots to add connectivity and services for varied branch-office network requirements.


See the below link for datasheet as well specifications.

For just 2 Mbps, another possible router option might be a 800 series router.

If you expect to route between VLANs within your LAN, most software based routers are not LAN wire-speed routing capable.  For such, you'll want a L3 switch.  (Some of the later 2960s, I believe, support very basic routing).

If you have need for both LAN and WAN routing, often you'll want both a L3 switch, for speed, and WAN router, for features.  (WAN routers tend to provide many additional features often not available on L3 switches, for example, for an Internet connection you might want VPN, NAT and firewall capabilities, etc.)

agree with leo

- consider of setting up additional server within your network and configure that to run as proxy. That will help you to manage users browsing internet partially without bying additional switches/routers.
