I've been looking at both the Asus RT-AC66U and the Draytek Vigor 2130n that have had good reviews from Geekzone users, but budgets are tight so what cheaper alternative would recommend? Wifi isn't required as the small business already has a separate wifi network, and features such as USB ports aren't required either.

One confounding variable is that web filtering services will most probably be required. That may occur on the device, or perhaps via a third-party could-based service.

Any suggestions most appreciated.

Mikrotik RB951G-2HnD

Will be fine for ADSL/VDSL if you add a Draytek Vigor 130 and then will still have enough grunt to route 100Mbps UFB.

As for web filtering just use OpenDNS. They have a server somewhere close. It's 40ms away from me here on Snap ADSL so probably in Amazon Sydney DC.

Great, thanks guys. Had a quick look at the specs and those two look good, the extra RAM/CPU power of the second option looks good for a 100MBps connection if they chuck a few more users on the network, but cheapness might prevail! :(
