Getting a new firewall
Posted on 2004-10-25
My home office firewall just died and looks like never coming back
I'm running off a UK broadband cable connection. I've just bought a Dlink DI-604 just to make sure I can get back on the net ASAP
I can get one of the following:
CISCO PIX 501 3DES Bundle (Chassis, SW, 10 Users, 3DES)
I thought I could put the DI-604 onto the cable modem and then untrusted users onto the DI-604, and isolate the development computers with the CISCO firewall for added security, so the WAN on the CISCO will plug into the LAN on the Dlink, and the WAN on the dlink into the broadband modem.
1. Any reason why this setup wouldn't work ?
2. Any reasons not to use a CISCO PIX in this configuration ?
