Summary: I have run my own IT business for over 9 years now, and been in IT for 20. This router is perhaps the biggest piece of garbage I've ever used. It is riddled with flaws and oddities. I spent 10 hours yesterday trouble shooting why the stupid thing wouldn't obey ANY QOS settings. After exhausting anything I Could think of I ended up trying to revert back to older firmwares one by one. Finally, the older 220.127.116.11 firmware worked. Magically QOS started being "obeyed".
Summary: Fast and easy to set up. Only non-wireless one I could find that could handle comcast 100Mbps+ speeds. I get 119Mbps on it, the same as if I was connected right into comcast. Turn off IPS if you want speed. I could not get more than 20Mbps with it on.
Summary: I have used the Cisco RVS4000 on my network about 3 years now and still going great. It rates a 5 star but I do not love material things. I have a WHS v1 and 4 other client computers and I DO NOT forget to make a backup. The WHS handles that each and every day.
Summary: Great priced vpn router. We currently us these to connect any remote offices to our companies vpn. We use an ipsec tunnel and for the price they cant be beat. Very easy to setup and use. I would update the firmware once you have opened the router it seems there have been a few updates since they where shipped.
Summary: LOVE IT. Easy setup, about 10% increased data flow (we're on 20 meg fiber...) bumped it up to 22 megs down and from 4 to 5 up. Must handle the handshaking better/faster. We are cisco fans anyway, but this one exceeded expectations!!
This router does not perform as Cisco would be expected
20 February 2013
Summary: I bought this router after reading lots of reviews about this router and other brands. I disregarded some bad reviews about this router and thought that Cisco had fixed the issues with a latest version of firmware. I was being naive. I fooled myself. This router stopped working overnight with the latest firmware I could find. Diagnostics: Router simply lost internet connection and I tried: reset to default settings, it did not work.
