Could anyone suggest a low end router that would be suitable for my company's needs? Here's what we're trying to do:
We had a sister company in a remote location initially but we're now in the same building. Both companies have their own ISPs and use IPCop as their gateways/firewalls for their ISPs. We used to connect both subnets via VPN, but now that we're under the same roof, it's become redundant.
We're looking for a small router that will be able to route interlan traffic while we maintain our ISPs. Traffic between subnets won't be very high as only a few users will be going across to each side. Any suggestions?
You can use an 871 or 1841 for that. Both have 1 FE and 1 set of switched ports. The latter is modular and you can put a card to connect your internet directly. Do not expect to be able to make copies at FE wire-speed with either models.
For that you could use a small l3 switch like 3560-8PC that is very small and smart.
