Summary: The Cisco 2611 is a great learning router or used to run a small business either in your home or small office. The router does not have a lot of throughput only 10mb max which most service providers far surpass that limit for downloading but it does support a multitude of WIC cards for upgrading or connecting different networks. This would also make a great VOIP router if running a T1 as that only needs 1.5mb.
Screw holes stripped badly on my routers. Cant mount...
7 October 2010
Summary: the screw holes are stripped so bad i cant put on the mounts. now its useless. def would no buy from this seller unless he would exchange my routers for better ones. yes routers BOTH of them were bad.
Summary: Got a couple 2611's for a CCNA lab. They work as expected. blah blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah
Summary: The 2611 is a great router for almost anything. They are very flexible and support many wics, vics and modules. One does need to be aware of what version of ios and features / functions you need. It does pay to have the extra ram & flash and current boot rom. They are still very useful with low ram, but you wont necessarily be able to load a different ios without and upgrade. A quick look on Cisco's website will help if you are unsure.
Summary: Great used router. I would have bought a couple more if I had more money to spend. This is one of the few items on ebay that seems to be a solid investment. Most other stuff are knock-offs !! Been burnt several times. A+++++. Good Stuff !!
