where are you getting these reviews? the 83x series is a replacement for the 806 and 827 which is a very solid router that runs the full IOS, not some stripped version. the 83x are relatively new devices, so i'm not sure how they can get a bad track record. i've read nothing that gives these devices a poor review. any problem these devices will have will be IOS related problems. i don't see how the hardware can be flaky. > Also, can a FreeBSD router support things like the Vonage VOIP box (the > Cisco ATA186)? doesn't vonage use proprietary tech for their VoIP solutions? i dunno, i'm of the school, if you want to get use a router... then buy just that, a router. if you have access to someone who is a cisco netacad student, ask them to purchase a 831 for you. netacad students have an option for a one time purchase for one 831 for somewhere around $200-$250. __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
