I have a circa 2001 BEFSR11 I hooked up at the high school at which my wife teaches when they installed cable modem. It isn't a very big high school (8 teachers & 53 students.) Sometimes when the computer class is in session and about 18 people are in the lab the router will crap out and stop responding on the LAN side (I am not sure about the WAN side.) Power cycling the router fixes the problem. The cable provider has monitored our line at our request and confirms that they have seen no outages to the modem. To my mind, one of two things is happening: 1. This model of router just isn't up to this task. 2. This particular unit is old/bad and just needs to be replaced with a new one. This school will be adding 38 students next year and hopes to grow to a maximum of 160 students with about 20 faculty and staff in within 2-3 years. Should one of the LinkSys broadband routers be sufficient to handle this volume and if so, which one?
