Summary: Had this router with Comcast at my first location. Configured the unit. Glitchy at best. Hard resets needed, power cycling needed, slower than dirt as soon as I configured the VPN. VPN connected/ vpn NOT connected- router was slower than dirt. I put it back in the box and left it for a few months. Location2; pulled it back out of the box. Updated the firmware hopeing to fix some of the issues mentioned above. Router was working fine.
Summary: I purchased this device as a replacement for higher end Cisco devices that have networking limitations (such as the ASA5505 and the 871W). The key features that I liked on this model where: Multi-VLAN capabilities and Inter VLAN Routing The ability to tie several WIFI SSIDs into the appliance. The big one.. IPSEC VPN capabilities built into the appliance. Can be used as an EZVPN Client in NE mode.
Summary: Very Problematic Device! We constantly have to unplug it from the wall and plug it back in again for all our devices to use it. We have some 10 devices, and constantly one of the devices is dropped and cannot connect to it unless the power is cycled. Very good performance otherwise, but the daily power cycling to get all devices to play fare and happy with it is just really frustrating!
Summary: I purchased one of these last year because I had a consumer grade router that I had just bought that had a vuln announced for it the day after I bought it. So I googled wifi routers and "vuln" and discovered that most of the consumer grade home wifi routers are vulnerable to known hacking exploits. I purchased a business grade router in hopes of getting better security. This Cisco unit meets the need, but the default wifi radio settings are not very good.
