Router for home use?

pham0329pham0329 Member Posts: 556
I have a couple 3550s and 3750s at home, but sadly, they don't do NAT. What would be a good router for home use? Preferably something with wireless capabilities and would allow me to play around with IP SLA and NetFlow

    I use a 2600 series. I would like to get a 800 series router (so I can use my 2600 for labbing). 1721s also work well.

    I thought about the 871w since that's what Jeremy recommended, but it was a little pricey. I have a 1721 laying around somewhere...maybe I'll just get a fastethernet module for it and use that instead. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    For your home, 'production' network? Get some piece of crap Linksys or something. I leave the lab gear for the lab, so I don't have to worry about my 'playing' killing off Internet access for the wife and kids :)

    get a 877 adsl or 887 adsl2 or 877w or 887w

    877's go for around $105 on (or thats what I paid $125 with p&h last week)

    or get a wic adsl for the 1721 - adsl ones for around $25

    might want to check you have enough ram and flash for the required ios version first

    Get an SR520W they are pretty much an 870 series in a metal case that comes with rackmounts but run advanced ip servcices and are cheaper/same price as the 857w counterpart.


    For home use, SRP521 or SRP527 for ethernet or ADSL, they are small business pro range but work bloody well, do vpn's, qos etc and has 2x FXO ports for running analogue phones to a sip provider and 802.11N, i ripped my 877 out and replaced with this as it replaced my 877 + 1131 AP + Linksys Pap2T.
