Summary: Pro: Lots of features and controls. Con: Features don't work well. There's no command line to use more obscure features. Log error messages are plentiful but almost useless. This device is the representative of Worse Than Failure. The wireless is quite flaky. But it doesn't die abruptly; instead, it simply fails to connect new clients. Randomly.
Sadly I have to I admit I lost my time and money with this router
10 September 2014
Summary: I'd like to share the issues I had with this router - it might help other prospective buyers to decide. I bought this router in 2011 in order to replace my old DLink, hoping that a "small business router" will perform better ... I've updated with latest firmware (latest version is 184.108.40.206, released more than one year ago). The main issue with its web pages is the slowness. Big slowness on access / change anything in these Web pages.
Summary: I knew I was in trouble when I first connected to it's GUI and it said that it had a Certificate error. Cisco tech support told me I could "Purchase" a valid certificate? Cisco has farmed out Tech support to a company based out of Venezuela or it may have been Costa Rica I'm not sure (these guys provide support on Cisco routers and other non-Cisco equipment). The tech support guys are really nice but they don't know how the router works.
Summary: Wow has cisco presales support dropped the ball! Needed to connect about 130 users and cisco presales support told me this would work fine. After 3 months of Cisco tech support calls I found out that this unit maxes out at 65 users. BEWARE of Cisco presales, they really do not know what they are talking about. Anything they tell you do lots of diligent work ahead of time.
Summary: I was looking forward to this device and the hoping it would be a good replacement to our Linksys router. Everything was fine until I attempted to connect the WAN side. The device simply said "Not Yet Connected" even though there was communication between it and our modem. Even after inputting a static IP that works for our previous router and the RV220W saying "Connected," there was no Internet access.
Summary: I needed a small business router for the home office. I really needed SSL working since my real office already uses IPSEC and you can't run the two tunnels at once. For what its worth, the Cisco support guys tried as best as they could to be helpful, but long story short, there needs to be a firmware upgrade on this router before you can ever run SSL to it from an x64 machine. Overall 4 stars if you don't want/need SSL. Good combination of functionality & price.
Summary: Hope it would be a lot better. Pros - Gigabit works well, getting it running (basic parts - Lan and Wireless) were quick. LEDs are nice to see what each port is doing (10, 100, 1000). Wireless range is good. Con - it is NOT simultaneous dual-band! I spoke to Cisco Sales before I bought and they said it was, it's not!. I have and HP Network printer that is DHCP and could not get it to work with RV220 but worked fine with many other routers.
Summary: I have owned many Linksys / Cisco devices and this thing has been NOTHING but trouble. At first they had an issue that you could not access public nat translations internally, my Bonjour services go crazy and I have to restart the router often. Would NOT buy again.
Summary: I had this product for about a month, and it was working fine. After this i started getting between 25-25% packet loss on all interfaces. Factory resets, and firmware upgrades didn't seem to resolve the issue. This isn't really the kind of quality I'd come to expect from cisco. I'm sure this router could be five stars, but in it's current state of poor production quality, I'm going to have to give it one.
Summary: I can't belive that Cisco release a product in this stage. What should be a simple setup for VPN it's an impossible task on this router. After spending a full day with VPN settings I found out, on Cisco support forum, that there are major issues with lastest firmware 220.127.116.11 (released in Nov 2011). VPN Wizard is a joke. I didn't succede in making a PPTP working connection from my iPhone or Windows. I don't like SSLVPN because the need to open remote access.
