win2k as a router

By samirkal ·
Hi,
Does win2k have poor performance when acting as a router, I recommended for my manager to divide some parts of our network with win2k router because our network is connected with all the switches to the central intel router, and whenever the intel router stops all the network stops.I recommended linking the different group of clients to the switch and the switch to the win2k router and the win2k router to the intel router, and this will remove the single point of failure on our current network.
Is that true?

Try a second switch, it will provide some redunancy and better preformance at a lower cost. Use a router in level 4 situations when you need to segement your network.

Routers route and servers serve. Using a server to perform routing functions should always be a last resort, short-term solution. A better solution would be to determine the problem(s) with your existing router and network design. Your proposed solution cannot be evaluated with the limited information you have provided.
