Hi,
Can someone tell me a general comparison between Cisco 877-M and Cisco 837 series router. They both are meant for ADSL connections. But is there any performance catch or any other benefits of one over the other ? Thanks,

837 is at the end of its life:

The 877 replaces the product line with current technologies:

Wireless is just one additional feature, later software, more memory etc...

K8 Product bundels have weaker DES encryption.

877 has more memory, handles 802.1q on its ethernet ports, generally much better (well, newer) router. 877 also supports adsl2  the 877 is a faster router, but unless you are doing any ethernet<->ethernet routing or planning on using adsl2 you probably aren't going to notice there.

"k9" routers support stronger (AES/3DES) encryption, are restricted in countries that have encryption laws like china. my cisco price/part list doesn't even include the non k9 part.
