what is the best router for a small academic department
Posted on 2004-03-20
I'm working at a new academic department at university. My supervisor would like me investigate how expensive and what kind instrument we should buy if we want to run our own network. The university has a gigabit Ethernet backbone. I'm thinking that we need to have a router (gigabit) and at least one switch. All the rooms are wired with Cat 5 copper cables.
Any idea what router and switches we should buy. 255 ip addresses should be enough for us.
Many thanks in advance.
