Im looking to buy a better then average router for my office.  I would like it to be very secure and highly configurable.  Price under $500 new or used (ebay).  I would like it so that a virus/trojan/remote desktop/etc.. cannot be initiated without opening ports on router.  Currently we do not have any remote connections into the office.  Could you recommend some makes and models for me?

Go with the Cisco 870 Series routers they have IPS and firewalling and can be had used for under $500. Configuration is also super easy using the SDM http://www.cisco.com/go/sdm These are the most "feature rich" routers I have ever seen. You also get Cisco's legendary tech support

While it is possible to put two routes in place with the secondary having a higher metric, this may not always work. In the event of a failure that does not bring down the physical interface on the router the primary route is not removed. There is a…
