Old School Dual Ethernet Port Router

Suggestions Please - Comcast in my area is delivering fiber for Internet and breaking it out to ethernet for our device.  The Ethernet they provide is the "WAN" side and i need to provide a dual ethernet port router, like old school Cisco 1500, 1600, 1700 series with a simple 2 ethernet port setup.  One side will be the public "WAN" side and then the other ethernet will be the routeable public IP's provided for our statics.  Prefer Cisco as all other gear is Cisco.  

So ethernet 0 would be the WAN IP, something like a simple /30 network and then the other ethernet1 would be the /29, our statics.  Comcast will plug into Ethernet0 and our firewall will plug into Ethernet1.

I think i can do this with Cisco's RV series and VLANs or the 860 series?

Can anyone help with a product please?

How much bandwidth are you getting from Comcast?

This one is only 50mb but would be nice to know which units will do this now for the larger bandwidth clients to size properly.

Well for this I would recommend the Cisco 4321. They're other models in the 4300 series that can scale up for bigger clients.

Ok thanks but for this client way too high end.  Any other suggestion and I guess does not really have to be Cisco...
I dont think you could do what you wanted with the RV series. And i noticed the other router models you named are all outdated. based on routers you could directly interface with the setup you described, Andy gave you the right answer for Cisco equipment that is current.

There are some devices like the Sonicwalls where you can make tweaks to make it work with this service, but for simplicity's sake I tended to go a different route: get a small layer 3 switch, and configure that to handle the routing. Basically it would go between the Comcast device and the router of your choosing. (Based on functionality I would take a Sonicwall over a RV unit for a small business anyway)

If you really wanted to use a small business router (without the need for a device in between or special configuration), you can specifically request that you only have to deal with one set of IP addresses. By default, Comcast makes you handle your own routing with the fiber service.
