I've been running Cisco equipment very happily until the last few months where we have moved to Fibre internet (200Mbps), I had to switch from the Cisco to some customer router that isn't cutting the mustard.
I am looking at purchasing one of these: http://routerboard.com/CRS125-24G-1S-IN as I have around 20 Ethernet jacks in the premesis.
but I have a few questions before I do:
- The routing/bridging speeds shown on similar devices look like they are at most 150Mbps - is this going to limit the maximum speed of my connection? Doesn't sound right, I would have expected it would easily route well over that, can anyone else confirm?
- Assume this device has no PoE ports - the specs don't mention anything about them.
- I am considering the Wifi version of this device, but it will be sitting in a cupboard, so I'm not sure how good the range will be - does anyone have any comments around that?
It's really just the speed concern that I need knocked out before I buy one, but anything else will be good to know.
