Hello Expert,

I propose linking four new sub offices
to head office using dedicated dsl connection.
I have negotiated favorable rates with my local telephone company.
The link will be from head office router to branch office
router ----  no  tunneling thru the internet.

Equipment I intend to purchase.

Head office                        Paradyne 6381 dsl modem and a cisco router

Each branch office             Paradyne 6381 dsl modem and cisco router
                                           1 nexxt        8 port switch

NOTE :    Paradyne modems will be supply by local phone at a discount once
                  Dsl link is  use for  at least 1 year.
                  Head office already has a full-networked infrastructure.

                  The above plan is only for the sub office connection


Question since I will not be passing
thru the Internet what type of Cisco router
would you recommend?


thanks

Cheap Range:

Cisco 837. This come with an ADSL port and a fastethernet port so you could get rid of the paradyne modems and have the Cisco ones do it all for you.

Or if you are using the modems and only have the Cisco routers for say RIP routing or even statically assigned routes a Cisco 831 would be the next cheapest thing.

If you want something a big beefer then I would suggest an 1800 series like the Cisco 1841. This comes with 2 fast ethernet interfaces and then you can get 2 additinal interface cards if required. If you are running OSPF or BGP then you will need an 1841 with the correct IOS. The 800 series don't support those routing protocols.

ALso depending on the IOS chosen all of the above routers support VPN tunnnelling if you wanted to do it.

Hope that helps! :-)
