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. Before buying, I read the smallnetbuilder review and was impressed with the throughput and the apparent value this unit allegedly offered. My experience with Linksys Home routers has generally been good. However, in use, the RV220W is a disappointment.
Summary: Got this for home use. For actual use & lab functions. I found out just before it arrived that it does not run ios, so thisbwould not help so much w cisco certification. I'm sure the product would do evening I needed it to do for home use. However, my lab/educational purpose was missing. I bought asa 5505 instead.
Summary: I bought this thinking it would be very reliable because it was both Cisco and small business hardware...boy was I wrong. It was slow and cuts out frequently. It was very slow accessing files on my server but I lived with it for a month before I purchased the Asus RT-AC66U to replace the Cisco. Now my server is lightning fast. Lesson learned.
Summary: This is a product that works, but needs refined. The user interface is not well designed. You "discover" the quirks as you go along. For example, you can click the main selection at the top of a window to disable the wireless radio. But if you still had the SSID Broadcast feature enabled way at the bottom of the window, the wireless signal comes right back on as soon as you close the window. Of course to disable the SSID Broadcast, you must first re-enable the radio!
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. While initially infuriating, this device (two firmwares later) is now able to partically deliver what I bought it for, which was: - be a home wireless / internet firewall, with support for VPN access to the home network.
Summary: I had the RV220W for my home based small business for about 8 for 2 reasons: VPN access and firewall. All is advertised as very strong but it really isn't that much. VPN throughput speed is slow, it is not concurrent dual band (which means that you either use the device on 2.4 GHz Or 5 GHz frequency, extra security features are on subscription basis, on a fee much higher than other security appliances, such as Zyxell ZyWall product line, which I'm currently using (USG50,...
Summary: Att den inte har dual band till det priset... Och att det ska vara så svårt att få fram den informationen. Man kan använda B/G/N samtidigt, men bara på 2,4GHz. Vill man använda 5GHz får man nöja sig med N. Får hoppas på fix i firmware för det, samma radiodel ska visst sitta i andra produkter som klarar det.
Conclusion: Плюс: speedtest.net показывал скорость Lan 1050 Мбит. Wifi N пока не на чем проверить, G работает хорошо. Минусы: Веб-интерфейс ужасно тормозной, пока настроишь роутер - можно состариться, на стареньком WRT54GL был гораздо быстрее. IPTV не работает (защиту выключил, IGMP прокси включил, сеть добавил) - на форуме cisco нашел описание этой баги в прошивке (https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2084931 от мая 2011) .
Pros: Скорость Множество полезных фич
Cons: Тормозной веб-интерфейс Не работает IGMP прокси Отсутствие нормальной поддержки, очень медленное обновление прошивки
