Hi Jonathan
Perhaps your cheap router (and I'm saying this because you mentioned as few 
posts ago) has redundant hardware like these one have, or perhaps your 
backplane (BTW: do you know what backplane your router has??!!) supports the 
amount of traffic that these ones supports, or perhaps can active support 
with low SLAs or perhaps you can have redundant configuration, or perhaps... 
Ops... I just noticed, perhaps you don't have a clue what I'm talking 


I hope that the information above helps you.
Have a Nice day.
