Summary: I should have known better. I'm a geek (I've owned more than 20 computers/servers in my >10 years as a software engineer and I've setup >10 wired/wireless networks for friends and family), so when I read all of the bad reviews on this product, I just figured it was people who couldn't figure out what they're doing. I was wrong, so wrong. The WRVS4400N is totally worthless - don't make the same mistake as I - BUY A DIFFERENT ROUTER.
Summary: I purchased this wireless router for my business so I could VPN into my local network. I also purchased the corresponding N-PCMCIA card for my laptop while in the office. After spending many hours with my IT guy, this thing doesn't work. - The browser based setup utility is slow and hangs a lot. - We never could really get the VPN to work (the QuickVPN software would lock up the entire router). - The router would intermittently drop the wireless connection.
Summary: I bought this router to connect VPN tunnel to a Cisco RV220W. Setup is detailed as required for secure connection. The Cisco VPN setup wizard did not succeed. What I learned is that VPN throughput is limited by the upload speed of ISP, which is generally sacrificed for fast download.
Summary: I just wanted to say that this router is great never had any issues if anyone has issues just simply update the firmware the security works great Cisco does a great job fixing any issues with the firmware it's not the hardware but, but the firmware I run a small server at home and it runs great by my books, I just wanted to say that.
Summary: I installed 2 of these One went just fine, the second one the internet connection stops and we have to reboot it 3 times a day to get it to work, updated firmware, with no luck, I will call tech support and see The VOIP optimization is tricky and no docs on how best to configure The legs are a bad design
Summary: Installed this router to have good coverage, security and VPN. It does all with very little set up. It has an option to upgrade the firmware and you should as the newer firmware make the VPN work much better.
Summary: Cisco! Shame on you for not recalling this failure! I took a chance on this router reading all the reviews on here and I am embarrassed to have to write this review. I have looked for the perfect gigabit router and thought that since a lot of these reviews were old I'd take a chance on this one. Heck I have never bought anything but Cisco or Linksys so I should be able to get this router working... It has been hit or miss since I powered it up.
Summary: I bought this item for its VPN function, but it doen't work. If you are expecting a VPN router, buy something else especially the router being supported by DD-WRT. I returned it and ordered a ASUS RT-N16. Hope I didn't waste my time again.
Summary: I have owned the WRVS4400N for about 2 years now and stumbled across all thes old outdated reviews, so I thought I would update them. It is true, when this router first came out, it had some issues, however a few firmware updates later and the issues are gone. This is an excellent router and I highly recommend it. The negative reviews featured on this page are outdated and no longer apply. If you find one of these at a reasonable price, buy it.
Summary: I have been a long time Linksys wireless router user from its very early days and have gone through model changes on a regular basis with them. I occasionally work from home and a stable router to sustain my VPN connection to work is essential. I also wanted a 802.11n router that gives me the speed I need for other home streaming needs. I also tend to fiddle with features and functionality of the routers occasional as I try to find the optimum setting for my needs.
