Looking for a router with QOS (for VOIP) and multiple external IP address support

I'm looking for suggestions for a router that can do QOS (for VOIP) and multiple external IP address support.  We have about 10 units on our network so the use is not that high.  The cheaper the better but I realize these features don't come cheap so I am looking for the best value.  Any suggestions?

The Zyxel range of routers are very good. They support policy routing which you can configure to match VoIP and give it priority. This effectivly does the same thing as QOS.

Most all gaming routers support QOS - and they work great for VOIP - Check Linksys, DLink or others and read up on them

They support qos on signalling but, not media... also they only support egress QOS vs ingress... which requires TCP rate shaping and primarily only found in VoIP or video conferencing appliances...

also look into convergered access... depending on how important this is.

Since I already have a SBS 2003 Prem server I am thinking of using ISA.  Any one have an opinion if ISA would do a good job on QOS?

are you looking for egress or ingress qos? or bi directional?

I don't know the difference.  I have a new hosted VOIP solution, not vonage but business a business grade VOIP.  Does that answer your question?

whats the link size (your internet connection)?  who's the service provider? how many concurent calls do you want to be able to make at once, offsite? what handsets?

Welcome to VoIP... everything is a factor :)

Wow, ok here's our info:

5 phones, Polycom 501

Time Warner Business Cable modem, 1.5 down and 384 up

No handsets as of yet.  

Would like to be able to make as many as 5 calls at once.

Our voip provider is I-tel

Need anything else?

OK...first off a handset is the phone... just another term...

Localization is the main issue... a lot of the products I suggested are not available worldwide...

5 phones is relatively minimal... try a DLink DL-102

its only 69.99 and is passive...

If not the Intertex ix-67 would be my next choice for that size

intertex.se?

the DLink DL-102 looks like a great suggestion.  I think i will go out and purchase it right now.  Had i configured our ISA server would it have been able to do what I need it to?

I am not sure of ISA's handling of DiffServ... I would say it probally would work... typically MS is not very good a QoS.. it more linux apps...
