Router advice for small business traffic
Posted on 2013-05-29
I have small office that needs a network upgrade. I've toyed around with various devices but thought I'd also throw the question out here.
There about 12 computers and heavy traffic coming from 6 to 8 of them at any given time. The router and switch being 100 mbps is slowing things down big time.
Currently, the office has a Ubee (U10C018) that's getting 23d/3u. This is attached to a Cisco rv120w and a old netgear 100mbps switch. The switch and router connected directly from the modem share the connections. 3-4 of the computers are wireless the rest are wired. There is another small 100m netgear switch on the network.
Our company normally installs Zyxel USG20w's but I think I may need more beef. I'd also like to upgrade the switchs to GB. I'm thinking if I go Zyxel, maybe sticking to a wired router, then running an AP off that to seperate the tasks. Then upgrading the switchs to Zyxel GB. However, I'm open to suggestions.
