Great router

Associates account, Amazon

  • Summary: Whatever you want to control, this router gives you the means. I've had it now in use for several years and has given good service.

Extremely Slow and Inefficient

Arash Mosharraf, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: I totally agree with other customers regarding the unresponsiveness of this machine. I bought this to replace my NETGEAR ProSafe VPN Firewall FVS336G and to utilize the protectolink features. However, from the get go I noticed the router is very slow.

Flakier than it should be

DeWayne Mangan, Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: 80% of the time this router works fine. It's the other 20% of the time that drives me nuts The wireless isn't as powerful as I had hoped it would be, and the admin interface is a bit tedious/sluggish to use. Still, the VPN/SSL features work nicely with other Cisco devices or Linux firewalls.

Home business

  • Summary: This firewall router is great! Very user friendly to setup. You don't need to be Cisco cert'd (CCNA) to figure it out, the GUI interface offers the ease of setup. But it would not be for the faint of beginners you still need to have a bit of technical knowledge.

Save yourself the trouble....

JDM, Amazon

  • Summary: Save yourself the trouble and skip the Cisco SA520W as a potential IT product. In my opinion, this device is highly unstable, and after 6 months of using this product, it is still not working optimal.

First unit failed, customer service decent

AmazonFreak!, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought one of these units for my company and thought it was going to be on par with a consumer grade wireless router as far as signal strength and features. After receiving it, it has a few additional features in the software as far as traffic monitoring and firewall stuff, but the unit has three...

Good for the single small business office

JoeD, Amazon
9 May 2013
  • Summary: I have been an IT consultant for over 12 years. I have installed and maintainted easily over 1000 firewalls over the years. The market for a good small business firewall is not very good.

It Could be nice, but it has serious issues.

Douglas Fenton, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: I am an independent software engineer that works from home (oracle). I wanted a real router with VPN that was secure, stable. After all the work in setting it up, I am not sure if I should return it or not. The wireless part simple does not work, is not stable at all.

Works Well - Upgrade Needed

James K. Mann, Amazon
3 September 2012
  • Summary: I am not versed in the details of networking. I know just enough to do what I'm told. The IT guy we contracted was convinced it was a great product before and after he installed it. The church/school network has developed over 16 yrs and needed updating. It needs more.
