Upgrade path from Linksys BEFVP41 router
Posted on 2004-04-09
We want to expand our 3 locations VPN network to 12 locations that use the VPN feature of Linksys BEFVP41 routers for our VPN network over DSL. We do not know whether the BEFVP41 router can really support the load at the center of this "star network". I am seek suggestions and opinions about our plan. The conditions are:
1> This network is for daily internal email and a burst of "end of day" data transfer. (a few MB per location)
2> No real application run over the wire. There may be VNC session to administer the system.
3> We have limited budger.
1> Do we need a better router at the center of the "star"?
2> If so, what is the upgrade path? (not limited to Linksys, other vender like CISCO will be consider)
