I am at a satelite office and currently have a Cabletron SSR 2000 which I am looking to replace. The SSR2000 has 16 10/100 slots and 2 small form GBIC fiber connectors. The layout of the SSR2000 is like this

There about 8 other switches which connect the different floors/users to the SSR2000 via ethernet (8 cat5 cables going into the 8 ethernet ports)
One fiber connection out to the main office.

There are 2 VLANs setup to join the two subnets that exist.

What I am looking for is a Cisco router/switch to replace this device which is the CORE device at this location(the last hop before going to the main office)

You may want to look at the 3560 or 3750. Both are layer 3 switches and capable of what you describe. 3750 is more robust and has stacking capabilities for future expansion.

Hope this helps

someone recommended the 2821c router, is there any reason to go with a switch then a router?

Not unless you have some need to support different line types or software. The router would need the switch module added and would get pricey when a switch will take care of the functionality you described.
