A workhorse SMB router

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: I have deployed these to every SMB customer needing a router upgrade from a home product to a business class router. Very reliable and easy to configure for all the basic functions. The built-in VPN service and Dynamic DNS feature lets me set up easily for remote access support.

  • Summary: This is a great product i have specifically used it to create vpn tunnels between small offices. I have purchased around 15 so far and all have worked just fine. One lost vpn tunnel info. Thats the only reason i did not rate it 5.

I like this thing. It reliably does what it is supposed to do.

J. Peck "j peck", Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: I have bought two and will be buying one more soon. It is reliable and effective. I originally bought it for the dual WAN ports and the failover feature. The failover feature works seamlessly. I have cable modem and DSL at my offices and this router automatically fails over from the cable modem to the DSL if the cable modem goes down. I've tested it and it works. I don't know if it has ever actually happened in service because the transition is seamless.

Great but keep it cool

b.deren "b.deren", Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: I've not had any problems with this switch but note that it does get hot so you want to install it in a place where it would get plenty of air movement. I've installed nearly a dozen at different businesses and they all use VPN and they all been working more than 3-4 years without any hiccups. I've never had any problems with them and remote access allows me to change setting on the fly without going to the location....but that's a feature that all routers have.

spend 30 bucks more

dirkjal, Amazon

  • Summary: after losing one internet connection due to the ice in the area, I completely had to remove this pig from my network and put a plain router in. had used Cisco Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Router (RV042G-NA) twice previously with great success so was disappointed with this one. spend the extra 30 bucks. its worth it.

The product works exactly as it’s supposed to.

David G. Belo, Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: I have been using a RV042 router since 2006. However, it just recently failed. Therefore I replaced it with this new one because the previous one worked exactly as expected. Although I initially thought I only needed one port to create my VPN, which was the primary purpose for purchasing it, I later found the three additional ports to be quite useful for temporary, non-VPN use. I couldn’t be happier. In addition, the delivery time was spot on.
