Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Basic ADSL routers are similar products from all manufacturers; however, certain manufacturers will add more features or make their routers more reliable than other manufacturers. You can check the spec sheets for the minute details of each, but they basically work the same way; though, Cisco would probably work more efficiently.

The router is not used to secure your network, make sure you have a firewall inplace for that. Most small companies will put their server in-front of all other networking devices to maintain some sort of security for the network.

    Cisco & Linksys are the same company. Cisco purchased Linksys a couple of years ago. As MShen says, there could be some basic functionality differences between the models. Cisco branded devices would more likely have better performance and diagnostic capabilities. It just depends on how critical the device is to your environment and what functions you need. If it is a small or medium business, I would go with the Cisco product. For home use, the Linksys model should be adequate. In the IT trenches? So am I - read my IT-Trenches blog
