Hello everyone. I have been considering purchasing a router to play around with, but I want to make sure my money is being well spent. My price range is from $150 to $200. This is a Cisco 851 Ethernet SOHO Security Router that is being sold on amazon. here is the link

www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000A439QS/ref...&me=&seller=

Anyone with positive and negative input would be appreciated.

Tonii,

I'd strongly advise you look at the 870 series. They cost a bit more, but you get to play with features found on larger routers e.g VPN, QoS, Vlans and more.

Does anyone else have any recommendations ?

851 will do for the "basic stuff" but of course...
...
For $200 you could probably get a few 'older' routers on whatever auction site you like.

With a few routers a few switches and the simulators I have I can replicate almost any situation. I'm very happy with how it has turned out.
