    new DSL router for 15-25 users

    Hi,

    we are about to upgrade our internet from adsl to dsl broadband and I am wondering what router would be the best for us. Right now we have a adsl modem/router(aztech router which has been working for 5 years now), 4 switches, a wireless router. and 15-20 computers (3 locations within the building, mostly wired and one location with wifi) and all connected to internet and our current setup is working fine. For this new internet connection, we will be using port range forwarding and ddns(for our cctv). Would the new linksys router be fine(e4200) or should I switch to cisco router? If cisco router, what would be best suited for us with sdm? (i am a ccna but havent applied my cisco skills yet)

    Your help will be highly appreciated. Thanks

    Look at the Cisco rv220w
    It's their small business series (so it's what Linksys became)

    Turns more into a "fanboy" thing when it comes to true Ciscos....IMO they're overpriced.
    For 15-20 users, a good small biz grade unit that is easy to setup/configure/manage would be my choice.
    Here's a review...

    I've installed quite a few of those, solid strong and fast units...great wireless range. Only complaint is the long reboot periods when applying/saving settings...but that should only annoy you during the initial setup. It's a solid as a rock after that.
