I'm looking at purchasing a router for a SOHO office and basically just need dual Ethernet ports. The new Cisco 871 router works well, as does a slightly older 1711 or 1712. WAN modules or wireless are not necessary.
Are their any functional differences in the IOS capabilities for either of these models? Are either "dumbed down" from what I can expect out of a 2600XM or better model?
I can't seem to find processor speed specs on the new 870 series. Does anyone know which would be faster? More pps?
