Gigabit hardware



  • Need some recommendations on hardware for a dual wan gigabit.

    I will have 2 500/100 lines coming in.

    Have 20 IP phones, 20 computers, NAS server, Need a router that will be able to give me the best speeds.

    Anything relatively recent with a real cpu (starting around i3) and intel nics should be plenty.



  • If you plan on accessing that NAS over VPN, make sure you have enough CPU to handle AES at those speeds. Probably make sure you get AES-NI on the CPU, even if it isn't used yet, AES-NI should be getting support "soon".
