Hi,

I'm looking for fairly basic router that will support around 30ish using internet.

Basic requirements are:

support for vlans + subinterfaces
decent firewall rule management

Looking for something around 400ish, but nothing general consumer.  Can anyone recommend something reliable?

Thanks

Why not go with a Cisco 891? Should run you just under $500 and will allow you to do NAT, ACLs, routing, etc.

I know I found an 891 for around $500 in the past, cannot remember where now though. I see an 888, which would also work for you, that is on amazon.com for a bit over $500.

Basically, look at the 800 series routers from Cisco to find the combination that works best for your needs.

Well I really wanted to have a gigabit router as I wanted to do the "router on a stick" with sub-interfaces.  In my gigabit network using 100mb lan port on the router, wouldn't this bottleneck me when I need to route through the lan port?

It would, however I am unsure of any device that would provide you gigabit ports, non-consumer grade, that is close to your price range. You may want to consider finding a used or refurbished Cisco ISR 2821. That has two GigabitEthernet interfaces and would accommodate your router on a stick implementation. It may be more expensive than the 800 series, but would work.

I think I'm gonna go with Cisco 892FSP.  It's a bit above what I wanted in terms of price, but it will do the job.

The 800 series is a good system for soho setups. That 892FSP should work well for you.
