I am looking at moving to a Full T-1 connection.  I need to deside on a router to connect with,  Phone company recomended cisco 1721 with VPN option.  I only need for multible VPN's to be able to pass through the router to my windows ISA server that will terminate my VPN's,  What routers does someone have experiance with that can support my many vpn connections at one time. 6 connections now but should grow with time.

Unless you need your router to actually handle the VPN connections (which clearly you don't), you shouldn't need a VPN option on the cisco.  Just get a 1721 or equivalent with a T1 WIC that will pass TCP port 1723 (standard VPN) through to your ISA server.

Jeff, I have had problems with some of the cheaper DSL routers at my remote offices not passing but one VPN through, How do I assure that I can get multible vpn's to pass through.?

You may want to consider using a static one to one NAT for your VPN server.  This would require a second registered IP address from your ISP but would probably be worth it.  This would ensure all ports are correctly forwarded.

It should not be an issue with a cisco 1721.  Cheap DSL/Cable modem routers aren't really the same thing.  You're comparing apples to oranges.

In any event, I am certain you'll be fine with the non-VPN cisco route.  We used it at my former employer's office coming into our firewall, which atually handled all the VPN connections.  The cisco router passed 8-10 through at a time with no problems.
