1941 vs 1841

I have 2x1841 and 2x2821 in my lab. Do I need a 29xx or a 19xx instead (or in addition too)? And why?

    No. All major protocols can be ran on 1841.

    But more importantly, you don't need to worry about feature licensing on the 18xx series (security/ips/sslvpn/etc) as they all come built in.

    Cool. How many WIC-2T cards do i have to have. I have heard 4 in one device and one in each of the other so that would make:
    2 WIC-2T one 1841
    1 WIC-2T in one 1841
    1 WIC-2T in one 2821
    1 WIC-2T in one 2821

    Or do I need to mess with the 2821 since I am not doing Collaboration? I have a friend who can trade me 1841 for 2821... thoughts?

    yes that is right. 4 serial ports in one router or 2x wic-2Ts. and 3 other routers with 2 serial ports or 1 wic-2T

    you don't need to do anything else with the 2821's.

    They are just bigger, louder, and heavier. also have much more expandability. might think about putting a nm-16a/s or nm-32a/s in one and having it be a terminal server.
