    I'm considering getting a Cisco 857 or 877 and using it as my main internet gateway.

    I was wondering if anyone knew how much power either one is likely to draw when under normal 'home' load. It's capable of so much more than what I'll be using it for, but I think it'd be educational to use one in a live environment.

    However, my current router probably consumes less than 10w, so if it's going to be drawing a lot of current, I won't bother.

    The 850 series use 26w and the 700 series use 26w :D

    Yeah, I just found that document too. It says 26W maximum. I wonder whether it consumes much less than the maximum when it's not being used?

    I know it sounds like I'm being cheap, but running a router that costs £2.50/month when the broadband only costs £12.50 seems wasteful to me :hhhmmm

    When its not doing anything I would be that it run at 8w or less as maximum but thats just a guess.
