  • Pros: The features it advertises

Could use some open source

Theodore R., Newegg
16 August 2012
  • Pros: Has a lot of features, especially VLANs and gigabit Ethernet
  • Cons: Unstable (especially the wireless), slow (especially the DHCP), trapped on Cisco firmware, no command line, no access to the advanced features of the Linux kernel underneath the GUI, outsourced development means very slow firmware updates. The error messages in the logs are plentiful but, without a guide to what they mean, they're pretty useless. I interpret the logs to mean, "This router sucks."

Unfinished product

VM, Amazon
13 June 2012
  • 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 1.0.3.5 (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.

Rubbish product

SG, Amazon
23 November 2011
  • Summary: I have brought this on the reputation of CISCO. Lot's of issues, some of them are: 1. SSL VPN with Win 7 ( 64bit) is not supported - This is not mentioned in their product documentation 2. PPTP connection is unstable - drops every 2 mins 3. Only way I can connect VPN is using QuickConnectVPN. But using this effectively nullifies the reasons of using VPN ( which is secure connection). To use QuickVPN you need to open the router administration for outside world.

Hmmm doesn't do SSLVPN on WIN7

Alan Ambrose, Amazon
15 November 2011
  • Summary: Bought this to replace a Pix because I needed the SSLVPN feature which the Pix doesn't have (but which is widely advertised on the RV220W). ___ However the SSLVPN feature doesn't work on the RV220W with the current version of Windows, namely Win7 !!!. That's because it's impossible to install the SSLVPN driver as it isn't signed properly for Win7 installation. ___ Consequently I wasted a great deal of time and money on this.

  • Summary: Kan inte rekommendera denna router alls. Web GUI för konfigurering är under all kritik. Bökigt att arbeta med samt otroligt segt. Vidare har produkten allvarliga stabilitetsproblem när det börjar köras en del tjänster på den som VPN etc. Spara din felsökningstid och köp något annat.
