I currently have a D-Link WBR-2310 serving as the outside router for my network, and it likes to reboot irregularly. Sometimes it reboots a couple times a day, causing disruptions for our users who complain mightily. I've updated firmware to the latest (v1.05) and it continues to reboot unexpectedly.
This is my outside router that serves wireless access to visitors. I have a Cisco Pix connected to the WBR-2310 to isolate my internal network and provide VPN capabilities. If a wireless user needs to access the internal LAN, they use VPN. The Pix has 12 PC's connected to it (via a switch of course)
I would guess the problem is that there is too much traffic for the D-Link to handle (pretty heavy internet use), so I'm looking for ideas on a good, robust wireless router with a good SPI firewall and some site blocking mechanisms (the D-Link can block sites by URL or IP). Logging capabilities would be nice too. (the D-Link has logging but isn't very complete, and it's kindof erratic as well). Our internet service is ADSL, 6mbit d/l speed. The Pix logging shows somewhat spikey traffic patterns - generally well under 1mbps but regularly hitting 5+mbps for up to 30 secs. Avg over time is low - under 1mbps so I believe our link speed is sufficient.
So, what brands/models would people recommend/suggest?
