Re: which router model ?

For that purpose you can use the 2600 series and also can use 1800 series router.

Re: which router model ?

The 3825 router will support your connections (the copper gig and the SM fiber) on the chassis. You will need to purchase the SM fiber SFP though. If you will be running any services on the router (ie QoS) you might want to look into the 3845 or the 7200 series router.

If you're not goingto be running any services, you might be able to go to a lower platform such as the 2821 or the 2851 which have gigabit on the chassis and they support the Gigabit Ethernet High-Speed WAN Interface Card for your fiber connection.

The 2600 nor the 1800 support gigabit interfaces, so they won't work in your design.

Hope this helps.
