    Hi
    i was told to purchase a 2610xm - instead of a 2610

    Can someone please explain the difference?

    The exact reason given was "incase i want to move on to voice or a ccnp"

    i am interested in a voice system - but i just wondered what the difference was

    thanks

    I'm not a CISCO person, but I found this that may help you. It has the spec's and what they are on each version.

    My understanding is that Xm simply stands for extra memory, which allows a more up-to-date/feature-rich IOS to run.

    I'd suggest getting the 2611Xm or 2621XM, which come with two ethernet ports instead of just one.

    And for completeness..... ??Z?XM where Z indicates the processor, two being higher than one :)

    Cheers

    I can recommend the 2621XM Router, very handy for my CCNA studies, and I am not going to start the CCNA Voice track, hence why I purchased this.

    Like Rich said get something with 2 ethernet ports, just saves having to buy another card for them.
