Hi Lav_plsb,

I think it will depend on your network requirements, number of users, topology, etc..

For the configs:
IP default-gateway can be used.

*It is better to show us your network setup/config/topology so we can assist you.

The Cisco 2800 series routers can be a good candidate for deployment in real networks. You might wana see the 2801 or 2811 specs. If budget is an issue, you could grab a used/refurbished 2621XM or any 2600 series router that fits your needs. As for your configuration, some thing similar to this would be needed:

[code:1]Router(config)# interface FastEthernet0/0
Router(config-if)# ip address
Router(config-if)# no shutdown

Router(config-if)# interface FastEthernet0/1
Router(config-if)# ip address
Router(config-if)# no shutdown[/code:1]

Sure you need to configure IPs/masks/gateways on each PC of the two networks. Or you could use DHCP to automate that.

As gagamboy suggested, it would help more if you detail your network for us.
