Summary: This router is an enterprise class router. Its beyond overkill for home use, but thats why I got it. I purchased this router to give myself a head start before I take my cisco classes at my local college.
Summary: This is not your office-store router nor is it from Ciscos "Linksys" line. This router runs full IOS and therefore is best configured with the CLI. I have never seen a gui or web interface for IOS routers that were worth mentioning.
Summary: This is a great router. I've had this router for a few weeks now, I'm using this beast as my gateway router at home (I know it's overkill, lol). I bought this router along with simulation software to prepare for the CCENT/CCNA exams.
Summary: I have only had this router for about a week. 6.5 days were spent trying to get it setup. Now that it is setup it works well.

I don't mean advanced like "The Advanced Wireless" tab on your home router. I mean advanced like you get paied to do setup on cisco ro...
Summary: I bought this router because I wanted something more commercial quality than the traditional cheap home/soho routers. Physically the router is big, heavy, and impressive looking. The problems start when you go to configure it.
