Site to Site VPN, Cisco 501 and third-party router

Posted on 2006-10-25

I need to create a site to site vpn between two offices. One already has a 501 in place; the second office is not yet open. There are 35 users at the main office, and they will never need to access to new one. The new office has 4 users; they will access a database in the main office through this vpn. I would just as soon place another 501 in the new office; the boss would like a cheaper solution, given the office size.

Can someone recommend to me a Dlink/Linksys/Whatever router that can establish a site to site vpn with a 501? Looking for a hopefully proven solution, ie This model will Work....
