    Luckily the way the system is laid out the cisco boxes never see a public IP. They go through edgerouters which are VPN'd back to the hub.

    At $25 shipped to my door I'm not going to complain that much about outdated software and security vulnerabilities. But I definitely appreciate the advice.

    From my experiments 2811 is the best option for Quantar linking. Still not very secure when connected to public Internet, but 1-unit height only, relatively more fresh IOS (can go up to c2800nm-adventerprisek9-mz.151-4.M12a; supports all LMR commands!), good performance/less audio delay, doesn't need daughterboard for E&M, supports USB boot, the last generation of ISRs where is no licensing mechanism implemented, etc. In short, I love them!

    eBay pricing starts from $30 + S&H.

    Just an update, the 2620XM came in and appears to be working flawlessly on the network. No more awkward dropped frames and a much more tolerable delay in the transmissions.

    Very peculiar. I'd love to find out why our 819G wasn't playing nice when others have had success with the same model.

    It could just old IOS or buggy IOS. Sadly but old hardware can go behind some IOS version and always remember there with it or below.

    FWIW... the hub router on my system is a 2821 fully populated with WIC-2T cards, and the first two sites run 2610XMs but future installs will run 2801s or 2811s. About the only functional difference I can see between the 2600 and 2800 series, for this system anyway, is the 2800s boot much faster. All were purchased sub-$100, and I want to say I got the 2610s for ~$20, all from Ebay and all preloaded with the latest Advanced Enterprise releases.
