  • Summary: No problems, just kind of tricky the setup. It doesn't come with rack parts to put it in our server rack.

Cable modem router, total powerhouse!

  • Summary: This is a great product by Cisco. The price is extremely good for the power and functions you get. This router has 256MB RAM w/128MB Flash so it can handle the 15.x IOS versions with absolutely no issues at all. My old 877 would run @ 60-80 percent CPU utilization on a 20MB Cable modem connection constant w/a Cisco SG-300-10 L3 LAN. Had the 881 but returned it because I didn't want integrated wireless for I purchased a Cisco WAP4410N.

Very Good Remote IPSEC VPN Router

Eric Durbin, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very good router for a remote VPN endpoint. I set it up within a couple of hours and it was up and running an IPSEC tunnel back to headquarters as a backup solution to our primary MPLS circuit. No issues at all so far. You have to be familiar with Cisco IOS and basic Cisco commands to set this router up.

Initial headache, but good once it is running.

Jay, Amazon

  • Summary: The IOS version this router shipped with has a pretty annoying bug that made me waste 3 days to isolate and figure out. The bug is that once you setup your VLAN, DHCP, WAN and NAT, the router connected to my ISP and obtained an IP address from my ISP BUT, after saving the config as the startup-config and power-cycling, there is an issue with the NVI0 interface which manages NAT that prevents the NVI0 interface from starting-up, thus never obtaining an IP from my ISP.
