LAN Routers

By CG IT ·
I need to subnet out an existing 0 subnet network into 7 subnet network and need a recommendation on LAN routers. Running W2003 SBS w/AD with DHCP on the SBS box. 3 additional member servers and a total of 58 workstations with the subnets as follows:
4 subnet 1 which is the W2003 SBS DC & 3 mbr servers
15 subnet 2
8 subnet 3
5 subnet 4
11 subnet 5
11 subnet 6
8 subnet 7

Follows a new organizational structure management wants with each department subnetted.

Budget limitations are about $2500 to $3000 USD for equipment.

additional info subnet 5 & 6 need file sharing and share a network printer, subnet 2 & 3 need file sharing and share a network printer. Member server 1 is a file server, with member servers 2,3 SQL servers. All subnets except # 4 require access to SQL member server. Only subnet 4 has access to to SQL server # 2.

DR: Just thinking outloud here.
How about a few Cisco switches, with VLANs configured for each subnet?
I'm looking at Ebay, and right now, there is a 24-port 2924 model switch for $235 on "Buy It Now";
as well as a a 2950 model (also 24 port) for $700.

You could just get 3 Cisco switches from Ebay for around 1500 USD, then connect them (probably 100 Mbit/sec, unless you could find some with Gigibit interfaces), VLAN them, and there you go.

At least, after a night of heavy drinking (2 for 1 night at the bar!!!) that't my idea!!!
