Hi there,
I'd like to know about WAN accelerator

1. Can we actually implement them in a cisco router (Cisco 2800 Router) ? Is there anyway I can get the relevant config for it ....
2. Are there any extra modules we have to purchase for this, etc
3. If we can implement WAN accelerator on Cisco IOS, then am i better off using QOS or WAN accelerator ?
