    I'm looking for a router that handle the 802.1q protocol.
    I have a swith (3Com) where I configured 2 vlans : one for the voip and an other one for the rest (computers, printers and stuff..).
    The goal is to provide prioterization on the voip vlan so quality of communications can be constant even when someone is heavily downloading on the other vlan. The port n°1 of the switch (where the routeur is connected to ) is untagged for the VLAN1 and tagged on the VLAN2.
    The vlan configuration is done on the swith, but my actual old router (the integrated 4 ports swith of the router) doesn't work with 802.1q so I think it doesn't understand the tagged frames. The result is that only the VLAN1 (with the untagged port) can acces the routeur (and so , internet).

    Which Linksys router would fit my needs ? I've seen the RVS4000, WRVS4400n and RV082. And next question : Is the Linksys implementation of 802.1q standard, or is it special in a way that it can only work with Linksys Switch ?

    I'm not waitting for a full featuring router with the brand new technology, but more a stable, rock solid router that does it job.

    Thank you
