Great unit with one flaw

Chet Strebe, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great unit. Lots of features. I replaced a Cisco Pix 501 and a Linksys wireless router with this unit. Make sure before you purchase this you read the release notes for the latest firmware release 1.01.27 as there are some known issues.

Awesomeness!

Anonymous, Newegg
12 September 2011
  • Summary: Before I bought this router I read the reviews and they where all negative. I don't know why, this router is amazing I bought this router to replace my dead RV 120W and it was an amazing upgrade. I was able to recreate my current environment in about 20 min.
  • Pros: Its Cisco, its stable, its fast, and it works. ( I updated to the most current firmware)
  • Cons: Would be nice to see two antennas but even with one it puts out a great signal!

a big disappointment

Francisco G., Newegg

  • Summary: on Cisco forums they said this issue is a "know" limitation of this product. I never read that part on cisco.com or newegg.com or on the specs of the device.
  • Pros: QOS VPN SUPPORT 2 FXS PORTS WIRELESS N ALL on just one device.
  • Cons: This product doesn’t allow the voice traffic on the fxs interface build in on the device to be routed on the VPN tunnel. This made this product lost his main attractive as all in one home solution for a small business branch office. What is the point to have 2 fxo build in on a device with vpn ca...

High expectations, terrible quality

James D., Newegg
4 April 2011
  • Summary: Router has some serious problems - every 1-2 days it stops channeling Internet traffic. Local ports and connections work, but it intermittently starts blocking all traffic from various computers and they never recover.
  • Pros: Cisco branding, multiple features, small size.
  • Cons: No Gigabit ports. Very limited visibility into what's happening on the router. No control over firewall rules.

Very Impressed So Far

Darin S., Newegg
7 January 2011
  • Summary: I am not a networking expert, but I have been around the block with low-dollar routers several times. We were running a Netgear FVS338, but two of those have degraded over time in our situation. We've only had the SRP521 in use for a week or so, it may let us down yet...
  • Pros: This little box appears to do just about everything. QOS functions are superior to anything in this price range. The VOIP and VPN have been rock solid for a week now. I've not used the built in voice ports or the WiFi, but they are configurable six ways from Sunday. This appears to be about as cl...
  • Cons: It doesn't "feel" like an expensive unit. It looks very much like a router costing half as much.
