Many companies use these Linksys retail box DSL/Cable "routers" as their 
edge devices. I understand what you are saying about not using an external 
time source as a security standpoint, but that introduces suggestions, as 
Meinolf indicated, to purchase additional resources to have an internal 
private stratum, which I *assume* you want to sync with an external source. 
Either way, the external sources are reliable, and whether synching the PDC 
Emulator, or a private stratum.
