    hi,Im working with a net cafe, Im a bit newbie with networking, I would like to buy a router for my net cafe

    Currently have :
    a no name ADSL modem with router given by ISP (NO DHCP fucntion!!!)
    2Mbps/2Mbps ADSL connection
    4 switches (netgear all with 24 ports)
    60 PCs WinXP and 1 WinServer for video streaming and game server
    people play warcraft 3, counter-strike, wow, internet surfing and sometimes local and internet video streaming.

    We want router has:
    *QoS(mainly dont allow ppl download, they may slow down all other people)
    *port forwarding (for games)
    *minor statistics (showing who is using the quite heavily)
    *never have disconnection with online games (previous router has very freqent d/c with warcraft games)


    Questions:
    *do we have to buy a enterprise routers? (like USD300+)?
    *Im using dd-wrt WRT54G at home, I know it has all the feature we needed, I really like this router as its highly programmable and im quite familiar to config it, but is it powerful enough to handle 50-100 users?
    *is there some benifits to have ADSL Modem with Router together? (instead of using PPPoE from router to ADSL Modem)

    thanks in advance!! plz tell me any suggestion or comments...
