I have a question... I am currently expanding our network to accommodate a T1 to the
Internet and a 512K frame connection to our WAN.. I need to purchase a router and spoke
to several vendors. I have heard conflicting stories regarding the model of Cisco router I
One vendor <vendor a> tells me that I should get a 2620 with 2 Wan Ports and the other
vendor <vendor b> is telling me that I might compromise my security by using one router for
WAN and Internet connections. Their suggesting that I get 2 routers one for my Wan and
another for the Internet connection...
Vendor B is telling me that it would be possible to enter our wan without touching our firewall
should someone be able to hack into our IOS on the router...
I decided to go the experts... I would appreciate any helpful suggestions.
