Is the 7500 not scheduled for EOL from Cisco 'soon' ? So, purchasing 7500 bits that might be dropped by 'normal' Cisco support in 1 year versus purchasing some other hardware that will be in support longer might pay out in the longer term? --- Well technically buying a used 7500 doesn't entitle you to run IOS on it, so you need to re-license the Ebay Special and that usually costs close to what a new 7500 would cost. Anyway, on to the reason for my post. I've heard conflicting reports, is a 7206 faster at packet switching than a 7507? Some people tell me it is a better router, some people tell me it isn't.
