cisco firewall/router for an network with an adsl connection?

Hi there.

I want to buy a cisco router for a network of pc's linked by a hub to an adsl modem. I'd like to have a firewall on this router
so as to allow specific ip addresses from the outside world access to the network on certain ports but to deny all other's access.

_not_ too expensive. (100/200 quid range)

any ideas please?

thanks

Linksys will be an option for you: http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=34&scid=29&prid=142

Price is ~30 quid

Cisco starts at $600-$700

I would suggest Cisco PIX 501, but I'm not sure how much it costs in quid... about $500 USD new. Might be able to find one cheap on ebay..

Cisco GPL (Global price list) price for PIX 501 (bundle with 10 simultaneous connections) is 595$ = ~ 300 GBP

For 200 GBP you can probably get one second use ...

For the office LAN I would agree with lrmoore, PIX 501 will be the best option ... but if price is an issue - go with Linksys
