Summary: It's hard to make a conscious review. In short, the router is solid due to recent firmware. After pulling a lot of hair on older firmwares where some issues were fixed and other issues arise. The other downside is that the Cisco smart support is hard to purchase.
Summary: Bought this in July 2011 to add basic VPN. After six months, I would not recommend this and am looking to switch to a different firewall/router from another brand.

Summary: I bought the RV220W so that I could reach my home network from out on the road, through a VPN connection, without having to leave computers running 24x7 and connected to something like LogMeIn, etc.
