I may be changing ISPs soon and thought it would be a good idea to upgrade to a new router. This is for a home network with probably no more then a dozen devices active at a time.
There is lots of detail on the ZyZel web site but I don't see any sort of comparison chart.
1) New ADSL service will probably be 6-10Mbp/s 2) WAN connection is DHCP not PPPoE 3) Router is in basement and I have a standalone AP upstairs so really don't need built-in WiFi but my guess it may be less expensive to get a router with Wi-Fi. 4) Have an external switch so single port router is OK but extra LAN ports are always useful 5) IPv6 support is not a near term issue but will likely need it during the life of the router. 6) Some sort of QoS would be nice.
I'm looking at the P-660H family but am having a hard time identifying the differences between the various units.

I do not have a link to a comprehensive comparison chart.
I suggest that you consider the ZyWALL USG50 -- IMO its best to leave out the integrated wireless stuff. Disregard the UTM stuff as the USG50 does not have the horsepower -- but otherwise the product is very good. If UTM is important then the USG300 is where I would start. In view this is for your home and no more then a dozen devices active at a time the USG50 will serve you well. -- David Mozer IT-Expert on Call Information Technology for Home and Business
