I'm in the market for a new network appliance router that either has the following features, or can be modded to have the following features:
  • Dual Stack (ipv4, ipv6)
  • On-Board Configurable DNS Server
  • Wireless
  • ...and VPN Support

Do they make such a thing?

Thank you,
Andrew J. Leer

Just my traffic to/from my apartment, either via a vpn or just myself browsing the web from home.

I just want to learn about how to setup a home network using ipv6, and be able to VPN in to my home network remotely.

I'm guessing something in the 800 series would be what your looking for. Honestly I'm sure if you call Cisco you can gather info about what models you actually need.


Additionally cisco has a "home store" with various linksys routers but I'm guessing if your here your wanting a more robust system:

Hi,

You should have a look at the Cisco 520 router. It is definitely less expensive than 800 series and seems to fit your requirements...

Krik actually on Ebay the prices are about the same for some reason (I just checked online of the two model types I couldn't even find a 520 but I did find an 871 at $15). But your correct if properly priced 8xx series should cost more then the 5xx. To be honest if you want the best deal you should shop them both because in the second hand market the prices get mixed around quite a bit. I got a 2600 series router for $11 with shipping and a 2500 series router for $22 without shipping. Is your intent to buy new or used leeand00?

The main advantage with new systems is you get a support contract and everything is generally legal. Also there are quite a few discontinued options that Cisco no longer supports.

The main disadvantage to second hand systems no support and cisco doesn't give away IOS. Also it's a bit of a gamble.
