Can anyone recommend a basic router that has DHCP and site-site VPN.

I also MUST have the ability to add custom DHCP scope options.

I use scope options at the moment with a SonicWall PRO3060, but thats abit overkill for this project.

How about a SonicWALL TZ 100, they are quite nice, cheap, and run the enhanced OS.

170 and 180 could run standard or enhanced OS but generally they had the standard one. The TZ 100, 200, and 210 all have enhanced by default I 170 or 180 would also be a good option if you already have them.

The TZ170 TZ180 and TZ190 have all been discontinued as they are Gen4 devices.  I would take into consideration the VPN throughput you need in deciding on a model.  I agree that the TZ series is probably still what you are looking for.  we have 22 sonicwall firewalls, from past experience I would figure out what model suits your needs and then buy the next best model.  I've run into problems so many times with a year down the road it's just not fast enough.

The Gen5 models (TZ100, 200, 210) all have great flexability with scope options.  You can create custom objects, object groups and apply either to a DHCP scope.
