A working internet link is crucial to most businesses, so it is sensible to have access to multiple connections. In case of the main DSL wide area network (WAN) crashing, a prepared link will keep the business online. Consumers routers do not include – nor need – this level of complication and some enterprise hardware can seriously affect the company’s IT budget. Setting up and configuring a high-class device requires well-trained employees, which increases extra costs. For a medium-sized business, a router such as Vigor 3200n provides advanced features. It is reasonably easy to set up, too.

At the front are six gigabit ethernet ports, with four reserved only for separate incoming WAN. A single port feeds a LAN connection for the rest of your network. The last LAN port is for a demillitarized zone (DMZ). This configuration is good for security, as you can keep web and fpt servers separated from your network. In the event of an intrusion through your website, those hackers will not be able to gain access to the company’s LAN. Different kinds of traffic can be routed to a special connection. With clever subnet allocation, you can ensure all the computers used by a specific department have access to your company’s leased line, while a department with lower bandwidth demands is restricted to ADSL.

This feature may also be useful for businesses in rural areas, where the internet speed is slower and less dependable. Using more than one ISP allows you to switch to another network if one goes down, but your company will still be interrupted while making the switch. DrayTek’s Vigor 3200n will automatically manage this switching. A USB 2.0 port can be used for attaching printers, sharing storage, even adding a 3G modem to have a fifth WAN. The latter option is a useful plan B if something truly disastrous happens that breaks all fixed-line connections.
