Summary: very great router, i buy this one to replace an old 837 series, this one rocks, very solid, the configuration was little different from the other in few commands, but other then that it was very straight, i got this router for 49.99 refurbished, but is brand new
A useful device for class and for a stub network--in a useful size.

Summary: This is a real, Cisco router. It uses IOS. It does not need an AUI adapter. It will accept the blue serial-to-RJ45 console cable. It will furthermore connect several fast-ethernet (10Base100TX) devices as if it were a switch. I had a (very old) 2503 router; the AUI plug would have cost me more than this unit AND the shipping. When I am done with classes, this unit will still have use.
Summary: The 877 is a stable reliable router for the home or for a small to medium size office. It provides a stable platform for internet access once its set-up. And set-up is the key. It will run without needing to be reset like cheap consumer-grade routers. Cisco products are the Energizer Bunnies of networking equipment. They just keep going and going and...
Summary: I purchased the Cisco 831 for a few reasons, the first is to have more control over my home network. I previously had a Linksys router which I got from VONAGE, so it had built in VOIP capabilities. Frequently the Linksys would stop responding, and phone service would die, the only fix was to reboot it. I was able to narrow it down to the linksys. Since I got the 831 I haven't had the problem of dropped connections, loss of phone service.
Summary: I bought it to use in the small office environment. The router works great out of the box. The only thing I don't understand is why only 10 Mbps for WAN port. I know the speed of the Internet doesn't run that fast for now but what about the future which could be just a few more years? Having 100 Mpbs on WAN port instead shouldn't cost that much, I think.
