Chosen because it was the least expensive Cisco IOS based router that would meet my needs
5 April 2015
Summary: Bought these for a work-based solution: I had several production lines with their own internal Idustrial Ethernet networks.. BUSINESS NEED: To connect these production lines to our internal network so that our quality engineers could collect data from the production machinery PROBLEMS / CONCERNS:...
Summary: As a home user, after upgrading my broadband to 6.0mb/s from Comcast, both my netgear and linksys routers were overwhelmed and couldn't cope up with all the activities for the 5 computers, Xbox360 and Slingbox in the house.
Summary: I'm using this router for my home lab and it is great. Has a pretty recent IOS and SDM. It's great because I can use it as my home router when I am done studying. Highly recommended for anyone studying for CCNA or just wants to use it in a small home network.
Summary: Details: Cisco IOS Software, C850 Software (C850-ADVSECURITYK9-M), Version 12.4(11)T2, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc4) Morpheus uptime is 2 days, 11 hours, 55 minutes System returned to ROM by reload System restarted at 00:52:04 UTC Wed Jan 19 2011 System image file is...
Summary: This router was recommended to me for studying for the CCENT/CCNA. It runs the Cisco IOS 12.4, you can use the SDM to configure it, it has a four port switch built in, and you can use it as your home wireless router. The one I bought from bombaysystems works perfectly.
Summary: This is a very good Router though its configuration via Cisco SDM is complicated at least for me. Maybe it's because I'm used to CLI. The Switch function that it has is a plus. I love it...plain and simple. I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
Summary: The 851 router works rock solid after you get it initially configured. The web interface is poor. No brainer if you know Cisco IOS. Keep in mind, the internal switch is layer 2 so you can't build separate segments on each port.
