Feature-rich. Low cost. Excellent addition for cert study.
23 April 2013
Summary: This is an excellent router, especially for those who are doing some cert study. Place this on the edge of your network as an Internet gateway and carve out a couple subnets for production and lab use. Speedtests show the router makes full use of the broadband connection, however, turning on the firewall features slows you down a bit. Just ordered a $7 stick of memory for it - should kick up the speeds back up a bit.
Summary: I bought this router to upgrade my home network to the wired & wireless as well as for practice in configuring Cisco products . Good a bargain for a professional. Recommended for advanced users.
Summary: I use the router in a bit different situation from most people. I use it in a house where I have a web and mail server as well as my home network. Nothing really business or for profit. This was my first attempt at learning about cisco IOS. This is definitely a capable tool for low throughput but high feature needs. I was able to set up routing, NAT, FW, IPS, and VPN capabilities. The advanced security IOS image makes a big difference.
Summary: Wenn man mehr machen will als die standard Heimroutern, aber kein kompletter Server mit 2 Netzwerkkarten hinstellen will, ist das ein guter Kompromis. Sehr viele Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, aber dadurch auch sehr kompliziert zu installieren. Nur für Leute die gerne herumspielen...
