Here at my office we've started to experience a slow down for browsing websites due to our router becoming bogged down by the the traffic. I've narrowed it down to the router as the problem goes away temporarily anytime the router is unplugged and plugged back in.
Current network configuration
Comcast SMB cable modem
Linksys consumer grade router
Win2k3 Server Domain Controller + DNS
30-50 connected workstation clients
The router was originally added to the equation due to the previous modem that was from comcast not being able to support the address translation workload back then before we upgraded our internet and received the new SMB modem.
My question is what is the most appropriate solution for this, is it worth investigating whether the current modem is powerful enough to be the router itself, should we just buy a business class router, or is there a role available for Win2k3 to handle this?
