Summary: This router was the perfect solution for my business network, especially the load sharing dual wan ports , it has made a positive impact on my hi data flow. It has a fairly user friendly interface and a set up wizard that you dont have to be a ccna to use !
Summary: Great little router for small business. Dual ISP failover works well, only outbound load balancing no inbound. Limited to 50 firewall rules, basic NAT and port forwarding. Never used the VPN function but have heard horror stories from others. If you really want the next level of router from cisco try the ASA5505 series, about twice as much as this but a lot more functionality.
Summary: The only router I use and the 4-port version I have 7 of these in service at homes that are fully automated and they have all run near flawlessly. The best part is the Tech support is NOT the India read a script take up 30 minutes going through everything you already have tried...Very helpful folks that are here in the States!!
Pros: value, reliablity,setup, rackmount Tech support
Cons: no gigabit. newer firmware versions dont work with older quick VPN software
Great Communications. He responded in minutes not hours
15 July 2010
Summary: Had a question about the trackign number and he responded quickly. Was well packaged to protect my router. Unit powered up have not connected it to the internet as of yet but will test it shortly.
Summary: What a great reliable unit. Performs all the tasks a typical small business needs and never needs to be power cycled to fix the internet. Blows away your standard routers with its built-in VPN options tunnels, PPTP, IPSEC client and REAL firewall rules. Also has a processor that can keep up with multiple VPN encryption without slowing down the internet, even at todays speeds.
Pros: value, features, speed, ease of setup, reliability, warranty, rackmountable
Good as a Gateway, for internet tunnels and VPN Router
10 April 2009
Summary: Purchased this as a spare as I have 4 installed. Used in several roles, Gateway router and pretty good firewall, failover ISP backup - 2 ISPs required (CANNOT be used for load sharing), secure internet tunnel between 2 company offices, and PPTP VPN support (up to 5 at a time). Nice unit, reliable and easy to configure. Can configure firewall to block/allow almost anything from the internet. If you use the DMZ feature you cannot have the failover function.
Summary: Static routes, IPsec site-to-site tunnels and firewall didn't work, gave errors , probably due to some previous owner damage. Very slow UI and generally the older models of RV082 (which it was) are pretty poor compared to the newer ones.
Summary: This is a great little box that's easy to set up. All the normal Router configurations are straight forward to get to grips with. Once I'd understood the basics of VPN set up, the unit provides plenty of flexibility for different types of configuration. The Cisco QuickVPN utility which is on the set up disc make VPN setup dead simple for Windows boxes. The only caveat is that they don't do a similar free utility for MAC's which I also have on my home setup.
