I need a product recommendation from experts.
I have a site where they are about 10 PCs within the network and these users check their emails in Outlook and visit websites from time to time. They are not heavy internet users. In other words, they don't watch videos or play online music all day.
There is a Terminal Server on the network where about 10 users connect from outside of the network. They all use Remote Desktop Connection to the Terminal Server. Once they connect, then they run their business specific software. I currently have Linksys AC1900 router where I have set up a port forwarding (3389 to TS). Once every two weeks on average, I ended up rebooting Linksys AC1900 because remote users complains that their RDP connections drop or two slow to use. Of course whenever I reboot Linksys AC1900, all is fine until next "Jam". Before I installed Linksys AC1900, I had a cheaper Linksys router like E2500 model. But I ran into the same issue.
So apparently these two Linksys AC1900 and E2500 somehow can't handle the load that is created by these 8 users who are connecting from outside using Remote Desktop Connection program. We have Cable Internet with the speed of 50Mbps Down / 5 Mbps Up.
I think I need to go with more robust router such as CISCO routers. I talked to a CISCO expert this morning and he recommended 800 series router with WiFi capability. I like to have GUI interface like Linksys so that I can set up port forwarding on demand without having to call CISCO engineer. I don't want something like Meraki which is a subscription based product.
Having said that, can you recommend a CISCO product (around and < $1,000) that has GUI interface and that can handle about 10 simultaneous RDP traffic and that has wireless capability? Now WiFi is not a must. I can always get Access Point device. There is not much WiFi usage within the office as they all use desktop PCs for their work.
