I am trying to find out what is the best router (and cheapest) that has the ability to do the following:
I want it set up a router connected to two 4 port switches that I can subnet. I want the router to be able to differentiate between the 2 subnets for DHCP purposes and I would like a fairly easy to use firewall configuration interface for a relative novice user.
I am trying to set up a networking lab for teaching about subnetting, VPNs, firewalls, etc and I want to use real hardware in the lab to do it without spending a lot of money. So I am not training CCNEs here but it's always better if you can do it with real hardware.
