With the SSL VPN tunnels, remote users can easily and securely connect to the office network through a typical wired or wireless broadband connection from at home or on the road. When used with the RV016 or other Linksys VPN routers, "IPSec branch-to-branch" connections can be established, allowing users in a remote office to connect to the corporate network.
  • newegg 10/100Mbps Network Connection The RVL200 features a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100Mbps Ethernet switch to connect four PCs directly, or additional switches.

1 out of 5 eggsNot ready for prime time!

Pros: Price and feature set.

Cons: Had to be rebooted every day - FAIL

Other Thoughts: I needed this immediately to replace an older Cisco router that was fried by an electrical spike, so I had to buy locally and didn't have time to purchase from Newegg or read the reviews. Big mistake. Needed this to connect to a remote office by vpn, fairly straightforward. Needed to be restarted just about every day. Returned it to store.

1 out of 5 eggsBad

Pros: Good features when they work.

Cons: I had the same issue everyone else had. The connection drops randomly on this unit. It looks like Cisco has some serious quality assurance issues.

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK 3/6 BAD 2 Bricks

Pros: Nice looking unit. Runs cool. EASY to configure. FAST. SSL works with XP Vista and 7 (32-bit and 64-bit.
Unit 1 and 2 are still working in the field without issue. More than six months.

Cons: Unit 3 failed (brick.) Didn't last 4 months. Unit 4 (replacement for unit 3) also failed, brick, within one week. For the week that it "worked" both users were randomly getting kicked off the network.
*unit 5 was kicking all (3) users off of their network. It was pulled from service within 24 hours. As soon as it was pulled from service- all of the issues went away.
Unit was tested and was dropping pings all over the place during the test. Unit 6 wasn't even installed. 3/5 failures- we stop and look for something different. We'll end up with (2) units that can't really be used or sold. They should work as one will still be brand new and one will be an rma BUT we can't feel good about selling these to a client.

Other Thoughts: It might be worth a look at the ZyXel USG20 for a comparible model. Pricing is about the same. The unit runs with less overhead on the hardware and has a slightly better feature set in our opinion. Support is better. However, anything can fail- we just hope we are past the worst of it in this case :)

1 out of 5 eggsKept dropping the connection

Pros: I liked the user interface. Easy to set-up the filtering and schedules. Easy to map MAC address to static IP. then, apply rules to block certain computers during certain hours. (I bought for my home.. to filter my kids' computers during certain hours.

Cons: Was very inconsistent. Would drop the internet connections 3 or 4 times per day for no reason. Reboot would fix the problem. Finally unplugged it and went back to my old BEFSR81... which works flawlessly.... but didn't have the more sophisticated filtering capabilities.

Other Thoughts: Wondering my no manufacturer seems to offer a home-use router that has the more sophisticated filtering capabilities. Am I the only person that wants to control my kids internet use by time of day?

1 out of 5 eggsRVL200 bad router

Pros: Easy to get started to configure as all of that brand are.

Cons: Dissapears from the network for no apparent reason.
Reboot brings it back for unknown ammount of time.
Do not buy this model.

Other Thoughts: Get RVS4000 which is much better product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Router with VLAN

Pros: Cheapest business router I could find with VLAN support. Fast setup and fast throughput. Currently have 12 network devices on 4 separate VLANs and don't have any issues at all. No drop in internet speeds from direct modem connection to behind router.

Cons: Slightly confusing enabling VLANs. Took me about an hour to get it figured out, but I had never configured VLANs before, so I will not knock off an egg.

Other Thoughts: Used in a small home theater shop with the following VLANs: 1-Our Computer Network, 2-Internet Enabled AV Equipment, 3-Wireless AP, 4-Another business that shares our internet. Never have any issues with streaming video content from the Internet.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat with XP and 32-bit Vista, SSL VPN unusable with Vista and 7 x64

Pros: Comprehensive web interface, staightforward setup, documentation is comprehensive (to a point...)

Cons: Virtual Passage ActiveX client for SSL VPN works well with XP/Vista (32-bit) and IE7, but any x64 OS will be completely unable to connect. I have tried every scenario (including preinstall of Microsoft C++ 2005 Runtime x64, multiple browsers, *cannot roll-back to IE7 under Windows 7), but the SSL VPN Virtual Passage client, which is ActiveX, will not install.
(I believe ActiveX is no longer supported with x64, and since the SSL VPN client is an ActiveX control...)
This is definitely something that should be clearly defined in product specs. Specs state support for Vista but neglect to mention they do NOT support x64 versions, only 32-bit. The primary client I need to connect, of course, is running 64-bit Vista, so the device is useless to me. CISCO/Linksys support has been 'vague' at best. This shortcoming is significant enough, that it might even rate as false advertising.

Other Thoughts: The plastic feet provided to stand device up, are constantly falling off. The chassis just 'rests' on the feet, but do not clip on. Normally this would be a minor nuisance, but add to it the frustration of being unable to get have the SSL VPN Router allow a simple Vista client to connect using SSL VPN, and the device tipping over every 10 seconds starts to really get... bothersome.

1 out of 5 eggsSecurity Vulnerability

Pros: Great SSL VPN router (if you could use it). Set up easy, works great.

Cons: Can't use. Has a cross-site scripting error in the firmware, that creates a security vulnerability. My PCI-DSS (credit card security) monitoring company found the hole. I had to remove the router to pass testing and avoid fines from the credit card companies. Cisco provided a beta firmware that did nothing to fix the problem.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it if you process credit cards or worry about security.

1 out of 5 eggsBad SSL support

Pros: Fairly easy to set up.

Cons: We wanted this for remote access with PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliancy but it only supports SSLv2, which fails the scan tests. PCI compliancy requires SSLv3. I would avoid buying this until SSLv3 is supported, unless you will not be using the SSL remote access feature.

Other Thoughts: Need to upgrade the firmware to at least version 1.1.10 to work with Windows Vista 64-bit remote access.

4 out of 5 eggsInexpensive, basic

Pros: inexpensive solution for small business, easy GUI by category, simple setup, low maintenance, a good unit to get the customer used to easy SSL [by IP] access on a static IP setup . . Primarily business professionals for us in Detroit area. .

Cons: reboot required every 7 days on avg to 'refresh' access from bad log-off users, sensitive to line instability on DSL vs Broadband cable. I have multiple units in-the-field for clientelle support. . and average a replacement about every 12 mo for heavy users. .

Other Thoughts: does not always ship with latest firmware. Sensitive to unstable elec activity [ loss of firmware with a single surge] even though AVR/UPS protected. Locks out user if user goes OVER allotted time, no system release for re-entry. .
