I have a very simple small business network that I set up about 10 years ago using a pair of Linksys routers. Over the past couple of years, the routers have become increasingly unstable as the amount of network traffic has increased. There has not been a firmware update for these devices for over half a decade, so it's time for them to go.
Here is the network architecture
WAN IP 192.168.1.4 192.168.4.1 Internet <------> DSL Modem <---------> Linksys A <--------------> Public Wireless AP (WDS) ^ ^ | | 192.168.1.2 192.168.2.1 | +------------------> Second Public Wireless AP | | 192.168.1.3 192.168.3.1 +---------------------> Linksys B (Intranet) <---> Switch
All of the intranet devices get IP address via DHCP in the 192.168.3.1/24 subnet. All of the public access occurs on the 192.168.2.1/24 and 192.168.4.1/24 subnets. The Linksys A router is configured to block traffic between the public and provate subnets. It is also set to forward SSH connections from the WAN to the 192.168.3.x subnet.
I would like to replace the Linksys A and Linksys B devices with a single device that allows the same configurations.
Will either of these devices handle this kind of network configuration? Is there a reason to prefer one over the other?
Also, I have a lot of the wireless access points running as dd-wrt devices in a WDS configuration, so I'm not opposed to buying a different device and flashing with an alternative firmware.
Found some information that the FVS318G does not support VLAN or Jumbo Frames. In addition, the default firmware only allows two internal subnets (DMZ on port 8, LAN on parts 1 - 7). I think that will eliminate it from consideration.
I ended up purchasing a Routerboard 750. Very happy with the results so far.
