Re: 831 is a good one
looking around and i can pick up a 831 from z-buy.com for about 400.00.
Get Smartnet contract as well
Don't forget to also purchase Smartnet contract. Once you have it, you will never forget how much your life depends on it ...
How much does the smartnet contract cost???
Do i purchase that with the router or after the fact?
Get them in a bundle
Smartnet contract price highly depends on the feature. Check out the z-buy.com for more info. You might want to call the z-buy.com cust. srv. to help you choose the proper Smartnet contract.
You should buy the contract together with the router. This way you don't have to wait till disaster comes to buy the contract ...
granted that the bandwidth is available, would the 831 be able to support 40 some users wan traffic?
How's your WAN traffic characteristics?
It all depends on your WAN traffic characteristics. Are those users only browsing and downloading? Are they also uploading alot?
Anyway by seeing your condition, the 831 should be more than enough for you.
