Worked great for 6 months, then dead.

T, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this in October 2013, and it worked flawlessly until April 2014. Now, bandwidth through the LAN ports are stuck at 8-9 mbps. Doing a factory reset didn't fix anything, swapping out the router for a different one works like a charm. Cisco's support website is very enterprise focused, and almost impossible to work with.

Great unit, but requires exposure to "Cisco's way of doing things"

David D., Newegg

  • Pros: This unit is solid once configured, but this is not your standard Linksys-like router, so don't expect that behavior or ease / speed or setup.
  • Cons: Interface is slow and not compatible with all browsers, so play with it until you figure it out :)

Simply Amazing

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Great GUI (same formatting as the Cisco SG300-10 series). Rock solid firewall. Massively increased my throughput, I mean noticeably way faster!
  • Cons: The GUI is a little slow, I have seen issues when mac address binding that it sometimes freezes in the browser (refresh and re-enter) easy breezy..

Solid router with excellent performance and easy to use VPN capabilities.

Shawn A. Frasier, Amazon

  • Summary: I needed a new device to replace a failed ASA 5505 and I didn't want the hassle of a support contract. The router needed to have solid firewall capabilities, allow for multiple site-to-site VPNs and remote teleworker access. After upgrading to the latest firmware (very important) this kit has performed flawlessly. Performance is excellent and the VPN functionality was easy to set up. An excellent choice and a definite recommendation.

No IPSec with iPhone/iPad

Max, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this router with the hope that it would run an IPSec VPN with my iPhone/iPad for when I'm away from home on public Wifi. This is not the case. IPSec will only work with the QuickVPN client, which is only available for PCs. Cisco makes an AnyConnect app, but that is only for SSL VPN, which this router does not support either. The only VPN option for the iPhone/iPad is PPTP, which is wretchedly insecure and has been for years.

RV180 router

Eitan Darel "ED", Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: The RV180 is different from the rest of the RVxxx family, IT IS SLOW, very slow to start ~15min, from power on to working mode. At first I thought that the product is defective, as I never saw such a slow router, including the cheap ones. Configuration takes a long time, as you have to restart the router, during the process. It does offer few additional features in comparison to the old RVxxx routers, and low cost price, but it is a very disappointing product.

Pleasantly Surprising

Christopher G Scott, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: I recently decided to get off the hip to upgrade my aging home LAN and needed a gigabit router to go with my new dual-band access point. When it comes to networking, I prefer to stay away from consumer grade products. At the same time, I don't have very deep pockets. So, I ended up zeroing in on the lower cost small business Cisco routers and found this little gem.

Don't bother with this if you are looking for a good VPN unit.

Mergathal "Mergathal", Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: This unit is pretty good but gets extremely low marks due to the very poor quality of the QuickVPN ability. I have a different, server based VPN set up because the QuickVPN on this would never connect. Otherwise, it is pretty good and easy to configure as a firewall.

Excellent Router

Franklin T Jones, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: Found this cisco VPN router to be an excellent replacement for earlier Linksys RVS4000 series. Small Business router supports mixed OS environment along with VPN. Set up was clear and easy. Requires some understanding of DHCP assignment of devices to internal network devices.
