I could use the help of some network pros before I rework my network.
First off I have a small lan with 8 computers. Currently I have two
linux boxes working as firewalls for my network but I'm considering
replacing them with some kind of hardware router and moving those boxes
to a DMZ. My network gets hammered by port scans and break-in attempts,
badly enough so that my ISP is offering to trade out IP's so they can
use mine for their honeypot!
The questions I have are two fold, whether replacing them with a
hardware solution would enhance security and if so what kind of router
should I purchase? I have looked at both low cost residential routers
on up to Cisco SOHO routers like the 831/851/871. I know some of the
residential routers run a linux derivative, so are there any preferred
models I should consider? Or should I move on up to a Cisco or is it
overkill for small office like mine?
