Recommend a Router?

Hi all,

I am looking to install a new router.
I have around 500 / 1000 devices connected at once to this Router. I currently use a DrayTek though I feel it is struggling.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

My guess would be that the bottleneck is your line and not the router. But this is a good price/performer:

It is a 100/100 fibre line. This is not the sort of router I'm looking for. I believe it would need to be at least business possibly Enterprise.

I would look to Cisco but this level of connectivity is way outside my comfort zone to suggest a model.

Hi there,

I'm a big fan of SonicWall devices, you can't go wrong.....please check these out. From Small, Medium to Large businesses you have options to choose from plus the security feature is awesome.

Also, check out the TZ Series. It has excellent features e.g. - content filtering, intrusion prevention, malware protection, secure mobile access, and other wireless devices.
