Summary: Decent price for entry level IOS device that is like 3 in one. You get 2 routers (i.e. Wireless and Wired) plus a switch. This device gets the job done with Cisco IOS loaded, you can turn your home or small business into a enterprise level network quickly. I like it alot.
Summary: Look, if you're Joe Average and you're looking for a router, this isn't for you, move on and find yourself a Linksys, Netgear, D-Link, Asus or one of the countless other consumer-grade routers on the market.
Pros: Cisco professional grade products have legendary reliability. I've got a router and a switch that are both end-of-life / end-of-sale that have been running for more than 7 years without a reboot. If you're looking for something with that level of reliability or you have a network that requires a ...
Cons: Cons...yes working in CLI of IOS sucks. Cisco licensing sucks, and Cisco products aren't cheap.
Summary: This is "entry level" of quite modest performance but is nevertheless a full-fledged IOS-based Cisco router with a substantial feature set. It is ideal for my purpose, which is to "learn IOS". I felt I was ready for this after many years in the software-IT field.
Summary: I bought this router to implement as my new home wireless router, which would force me to have more incentive to practice IOS command. I was also studying for the CCNA test. This router allowed me to do a lot of programming because it is all aspects of cisco (switch, router, AP) it has an embedded...
Summary: I purchased this router in November 2012 per my external IT support. This product failed basically within one year. Attempted to return it and was instructed by Candela Network it was out warranty and therefore I was out $570.00. I expect certain products to last longer than 1 year.
Summary: I bought this router to set up an ipsec tunnel to Amazon's Virtual Private Cloud. The router works fine for that purpose, but purchasing it was an ordeal. I initially purchased it via Amazon from another vendor who shall remain nameless for reasons I will explain later.
Summary: With the added Security and Advanced IP extensions from Cisco, this little guy right here has all the features of its bigger siblings. It supports very strong encryption through IPSec VPN tunneling, you can even run a Cisco EasyVPN server so no matter where you are in the world you can have a 7Mbps...
Summary: We bought this unit and encountered a firmware bug with it right out of the box. The unit had to be rebooted every 24 hours to prevent it from crashing. We have a very simple configuration, so it's hard to imagine how this could happen. Cisco identified an IOS bug and sent us a link to new firmware.
Summary: Its a bitch to configure and definitely only for hardcore networkers/engineers but if you're serious about security, peformance and versatility for your business or serious home installation then this router is perfect. For reference material to help you configure try O Reilly.
