I respectfully disagree on that a bit- regarding performance on 2651xm.
It will route/nat pretty quickly - and has 100 Megabit interfaces. More
than most ADSL does still...
A 2611 would be a bit of a slow one.... (10Mb interfaces...)
I agree to the point that the ADSL module is more or less junk these
days as it only supports ADSL 1 (which is good for about 6 megabit) - I
never went that way. I just use the carrier supplied modem and do all
the heavy lifting (which is really PPPoE+NAT) back on the PIX/router. I
think I started that about about 11 or 12 years ago when I was getting
lockups on a GVC/G-Net ADSL-Modem/PPPoE/NAT box. When I dumbed it down -
it was -way- more reliable....
The modems seldom fail, but when they do - it's generally just the
wall-wart. I think my Comtrend modem has a HP laptop brick right now.
:-) I just replace the modems when I upgrade my circuit every few
years or so...
I've not had to re-cap any Cisco equipment as of yet.
