Re: [H/W] Home Setup - 50MB Cable Connection
Looking around it looks like one could pick up an 1811 used or an ASA 5505 (50 user) for close to the same price (within about $100).
Is the 1811 noisy? Is the ASA 5505 hard to configure (only have worked with cisco routers)? Can they both do about the same thing (i.e. keep up with high speed internet with firewall)?
I see the posts above about 1811 keeping up with 100Mbit/sec is that with normal firewall/NAT/etc. Nothing fancy?
Essentially I do not mind spending 500-700 for something, but if the speed on the connection goes to 100mbit I want to be ready (i.e. possibly a couple years from now).
I have an 880 in one location, but it has slow internet for now, so I cannot judge it. Is the 1811 faster? I know the routerperformance.pdf chart shows the 1811 between the 880 and 890, how does this compare to real use in the field.
I know the cisco chart says something outlandish like a 3900 series for this speed with all the stuff enabled, but I am not running 50 people behind it. I just want the firewall with 2 users able to go full speed.
I would even consider paying around 1100 for the 1941 if it blows away the others (although maybe 2901 is less expensive)
