My company is looking to purchase a new router, we are looking at expanding our cable tv division down the road with video/ video on demand and need to upgrade our current router due to bandwidth constraints, my question is does anyone have a different router good or bad. All answers are welcome and encouraged. Any other router brands in this catagory is also a welcome option given the fit is proper. I work for a S/M Bell and will be the one the boss comes to for technical guidance, I have worked with Cisco's before for another ILEC but am looking to provide my boss with a scope that gives him the pro's and con's. Please be objective and give me your best and worst for each router you talk about. Thank you all, I enjoy this forum, so thank all of you for being part of it.

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

Just a quick note – cisco is ok. Other brands to look at are:
– Nortel
– HP
– Juniper
– Motorola

Since I’ve never dealt with streaming video, I really can’t offer much more than some brand names.
