    I host 8 servers at my office, using monowall on a 900mhz celeron currently (2 nics).

    14 one to one nat ip's, and a couple ips in server nat.

    I have 2.0 megs out, and 5 megs down.

    Any reason to get the RV016 over the RV082 for my setup?

    IMO...no, you're not going to beat a good *nix flavored router with any shelf bought router unless you spend at least 5 maybe 10 grand. (assuming the hardware for your m0n0wall box is running well)

    Only way up for you, is a matter of preference of which *nix distro...my favorite is Endian..although for the past month I've been dorking with IPCop with the Copfilter add-on again. Both of these, especially Endian, are designed more for business setups..as they have transparent proxy services which scrub for viruses/adware/spyware/SPAM.

    Other considerations might be remote access to the office for home users...wether you want PPTP VPN, or a newer VPN such as OpenVPN or SSL Explorer VPN (SSL VPN being a hot one lately). Different *nix distros support various types.
