Default Hello Everyone !!! and i would like some advice for my new router

Hello Im Vik and Im a newbie

Im the IT guy in a small business with around 30-40 pc's, im gona buy a router for all my needs which are:

- Web filtering / blocking, p2p blocking
- Decent protection from the outside world
- Wireless connection for some laptops
- Im gona use 2 different internet connections, 1 is adsl and the other one i still dont know, and i want to split the network load betwen those 2, maybe assign some specific ip's to each internet connection
- May use some vpn's in the near future

I did some research and i found cisco 877w and fortinet 60b to be a good choice, but i still dont know, by budget is around 600-700 dollars.

So yea if you guys could help me and give me some advice that would be awesome and thanks !!!

here in this forum the craftsman 28084 or the bosch 1617evspk or the dewalt dw 618 seems to get better reviews.

just teasing , this is a woodworking forum

light travels faster than sound, this is why some people seem bright til you hear them speak.

I think you have the wrong router in mind there,

It scares me when professional college educated people join this forum and do not realize something is wrong. These are the guys who will be managing major business IT.
