Enterprise router

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I need a router, not a wireless access point, but a router to use, I would like something that cost less then $60. Any suggestions are welcomed.

You're asking a bit much here... I mean, enterprise is enterprise, and you pay for that.

That said...

Chances are you wouldn't be able to configure it.

If you want cheap better than consumer gear -> Mikrotik, Ubiquity.


Something wrong with your connection ?

Run the damn cable :)

That router is only 10/100 and has a whole bevy of features you won't need or won't know how to use, OSPF, Frame Relay, NAT, VLSM, etc. Cisco routers and switches are initially configured through a serial cable and a terminal (Putty, Hyper Term etc) and then configured with SSH, or if you like to live dangerously, Telnet. In short the router is meant for enterprise and is not for consumers, hence no really useful GUI. Moreover you will easily eclipse the price of the router buying expansion cards for additional Ethernet jacks or T1 cards. I would not recommend buying it but if you do you might as well get a CCNA lab for 300$ and get the CCNA cert and at least have a marketable skill.  

 

...or because you want to set up MPLS on your internal LAN because your just a hardcore motherfucker I'd recommend the Cisco 1941.

Heh. I litterally just typed Cisco into Ebay's search. I figured if he knows at least somewhat what he's looking for, he can find something like it, I just wanted to show that there WAS stuff like that on ebay.

You really need to be more specific in what you're after. Why are you looking for an "enterprise" router? Why is a consumer router not sufficient? You can get consumer "smart" routers that have some of the more common/useful features of an enterprise router at a significantly lower price point.

 

What features are you after? And what sort of setup would you like to have? We need as much detail as you can give us. Saying "I want an enterprise router" doesn't really tell us anything because there are so many different options, ranging in price from under $100 (usually either ancient, or barebones) to literally thousands of dollars. It's like asking for a sports car under $5,000. Sure it can be done, but it'll probably be pretty shitty compared to a similarly priced family car.

To be realistic if you want a fast enterprise router you are going to be looking at Cisco, H3C, and Nortel... At a used price point of $60 USD you are going to be looking at technology from 20+ years ago.

 

Once you take into account network overhead on a 100BaseT connection you are looking at between 85 to 90 Mb/sec

 

I would suggest locating a DD-WRT compatible router and using that.

You could also make a pfsense router with a couple of network cards and an old pc (this will be under 60$, if you have an old pc laying around somewhere). This way you'll get enterprise grade features without paying much for it.

Oh yes, let's waste a bunch of power while we're at it.

 

I would get a cheap router that can have OpenWRT flashed on it.

Totally, lets waste an extra dollar or two (tops) of power a month. OpenWRT works great, but you get a lot more flexibility with something like pfsense.
