    A prospect is about to obtain high-speed Internet access for a staff
    of 10 whose productivity is critical and dependent on connectivity.
    Which of these gateways do you recommend:
    Appliance router such as Linksys
    Old PC with linux and iptables/ipchains
    Cisco router

    why? Guest

    That will be an smtp / antivirus / firewall all-in-one appliance?
    It's fast enough and easy enough to rebuild? This in't an appliance like
    the above choice.
    Neither is that.

    What happened to an 'appliance solution'? What do you want the gateway
    to do?

    My vote would be Cisco and 1 of the ASA boxes.

    Isn't that the least of the things you have to consider (which gateway)?

    But hey hopefully you have covered everything else, it's an important

    So are the choices above the kit you are buying? Why isn't the gateway
    supplied by the service provider and thier maintenance / support

    How much IT and networking expertise is there on site? If there isn't a
    Linux/Unix expert right there, go for the 'appliance' approach. In fact,
    as you need to ask at all ... go for the 'appliance' approach.
