Re: Cisco router advice Hasn't been mentioned yet, so I'll ask -- how fast is the connection speed itself, and what type of connectivity
(RJ-45, serial, etc) is being brought in from the ISP?
For 50 users with services, I'd consider the 29xx as a minimum baseline, just be wary of the ISR G2 / IOS 15.x
licencing headgames Cisco is playing.
ZBFW plays pretty good with NBAR, so if you get yourself a 29xx with 3 interfaces, should be easy enough
to do a TRUST / UNTRUST / GUEST ZBFW config.
It's Comcast business class: 22 mbps down, 5 mbps up. According to Comcast, sometime this month it will be increased to 27 mbps down, 7 mbps up. Comcast's device is an SMC business class gateway. Coax (RG6, I think) to the SMC gateway, then Ethernet between the SMC gateway and our router.
