Need recommendation: 2 routers with good vpn capability and can handle multiple static IPs

I am looking to buy 2 routers for 2 small offices, hopefully in the ($200-299).  1 Office will have 5 static IPs the other will use a Dynamic IP and will be conected via a VPN/ipsec.  I dont need anything fancy just something easy to set up and can handle multiple static IPs on the internet interface.  In the past I used Snapgear sme530 and found that was a good router.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I really think you should look into SonicWALL. I've had great experiences with them in the past.

I've been using the SonicWall TZ-210's lately.

Configuration of these devices is super easy IMO. The GUI is very easy to use, and I think the price point on these is very good.

thanks, I may do just that -  I have a client who uses sonic wall and is not very happy with them.

Any particular reason why? I was using the Cisco ASA5505's, but had 3 of them DIE on me under a year!

there were 2 reasons..firstly the interface was confusing to him (networking is not his strength).  secondly, and I am vague on this is that he tried to set up multiple IPs on one of the Sonic walls with a  tech on the phone and they could not get it configured.  He also said he got conflicting configuration guidelines from the,  As it satnds with him the sonic wall he is using is not in production.

Interesting. Well, that could be the problem if it's not his forte :)

I've configured many of them with multiple public IP's. Actually just set one up for a client with a Verizon T1 in 2 locations, and then using VPN between the 2 locations (nj and fl). WOrked like a charm!
