ISP (T1 connection) -> ASA 5505 -> 2 non-managed, basic switches -> 40 workstations (including a Windows 2003 Server that handles DNS)
ISP (10MB Dedicated connection) -> ASA5505 -> ? -> 40 workstations (including a Windows 2003 Server that handles DNS)
I have recently upgraded our internet connection to a 10MB dedicated connection. My previous setup using the ASA5505 firewall as a firewall and router works reasonably well, but I want to maximize the efficiency of this new higher-speed dedicated connection to its fullest potential.
My thoughts are to add a cisco router and a cisco managed switch or two.
I am looking for suggestions for somewhat older/used hardware (to keep costs to a minimum) but that would also allow me to utilize this bandwidth in the best manner possible.
Thank you for your time.
