4 out of 5 eggsSolid business product

Pros: Reliable router with strong wireless signal and plenty of features my kids hate.

Cons: My only issue is that each reboot requires 150 seconds...

Don't buy it if you don't know about networking...

Requires fair amount of knowledge in order to set it up the right way. Tends to be intimidating with novice users.

Other Thoughts: I am replacing my wrvs4400n, and I'm loving it.
Was looking at ASUS RT-AC68U and others, but the cisco built in firewall can't be beaten. Scheduling, access list, and firewall options with filtering and logs is an important feature I did not want to give up.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent small business router/firewall

Pros: Easy to configure, good performance, rock solid VPN connections

Cons: Graphical user interface is a bit slow

Other Thoughts: This unit is a good small business router/firewall. I am using them in three branch offices to link, via VPN site to site tunnels, to a main office and domain. The IPsec VPN is easy to setup. I'd avoid the "wizard", as it makes some assumptions that are hidden from your view, but the "Advanced" VPN setup is straightforward. Just make sure your IP sec and IKE settings are identical on both ends. Performance is crisp for 20-30 user offices, and the VPN connections tear down and reestablish themselves quickly and solidly. Overall, this is a very good product for small business use.

2 out of 5 eggsNice job Cisco - not

Pros: was a great integrated router and web filtering platform...

Cons: Until Cisco decided to discontinue the web filtering partnership with Trend Micro after only 18months. I had a 3 year service contract. Trying to figure out what to do now...

Other Thoughts: Cisco...never again.

1 out of 5 eggsA+ for the hardware, F- for the antimalware (Cisco DISCONTINUED IT!)

Pros: The hardware is reliable and it has an easy to use interface (web-based) GUI. What else would you expect from Cisco (this is not a LinkSys item). The chassis is all metal, powder coated, and it is a handsome piece. The range is fairly decent, but if you want a high performing WiFi unit, this isn't it.

Cons: Cisco stopped supporting this model. I tried to get a renewal of Protectlink, the gateway antimalware service, it was discontinued. No other services work with this unit. I was advised to return it to the reseller (NewEgg), and that is exactly what I will do. Cisco has a rep working with NewEgg, but they said this unit would last both physically and services wise for a min. of 3 years. I purchased 12/2012! Malware protection stopped in late June, 2013.

Other Thoughts: I will be contacting NewEgg for a refund. They sold me a bill of goods. I don't believe it was their fault, but when it's a Ph.D. in Computer Science against "NewEgg," guess who is right. Preparing a praecipe for damages in the event monies are not returned.

5 out of 5 eggsRV220-A GREAT Router If U KNOW

Pros: This router is just like ALL Cisco Small business products. #1 You must start by downloading and installing the latest firmware. #2 Most Cisco SMB products come with 1 year of phone support and if it doesn't the 3yr NBD for $70 bucks isn't bad. That support includes remote webx support by a Cisco engineer. Be direct and ask for the remote support. Cisco sell a Trend Micro add-on to this router. Access Control, Content Filtering, Web Content Filtering, Dead Peer Detection, Keyword Filtering, MAC Address Blocking, URL Filtering. Merit Technology in Humble TX.

Cons: The GUI is goofy if you don't install the firmware updates. If you are a MAC shop or have MAC clients and need VPN then just keep walking. No VPN with the MAC clients after Apple rolled back Java. Even the Jave fix by Apple doesn't help this. The wireless stinks. A WAP321 is a perfect add on

Other Thoughts: Cisco has done a great job taking Enterprise features and packaging them in a SMB device with a good SMB price tag. If you were to try and get these features in an Enterprise product you'd spend thousands of dollars. I've installed several of these with no issues Cisco and I weren't able to overcome. Overall this a GREAT router for a great price. If you're looking for cheap way to manage your network users and secure your network I strongly recommend you put this device at the top of your list with the Trend Micro add on. Call Cisco Support if you have any issues and they'll help you.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Performing Device with some Caveats

Pros: SSL VPN, VLAN, Web Interface, Gigabit, Quick VPN Support.

Cons: Slow Reboot, Quick VPN Only can access VLAN1, Wireless Unreliable

Other Thoughts: I've had some time to play with this device and while I did have some headaches getting familiar with it, it is now my go-to router for all jobs that require one. If using VLAN functionality, remote connection with the Quick VPN Client only gives you access to VLAN1. The SSL VPN however gives access to all your VLANs.

I was able to get ssl vpn to work with windows 7 64 bit. With windows 7, you need to run 64bit internet explorer (ie ver 10 requires uac to be on and some other funkyness to enable 64bit mode, so I rolled back to version 9 and it has a separate program exe link for internet explorer 64bit. I also added the site to trusted sites Also had to go to custom security level setup, and select "prompt under download unsigned activex controls", and I think I selected prompt on all the activex related stuff..

The other weird thing I had to overcome was that using the wireless on the router was giving me slow performance especially on youtube video streaming (not on vimeo though....) I wasn't able to stream anything higher than 480p without constant buffering even when 3 feet away from the router in line of sight. Also periodically the router would slow to a crawl and need a reboot. The solution to both of these poblems was to disable the wireless on the router and add a 3rd party access point. (I have used Apple and ubiquiti and both solved the problem.) With that being the only change, now the router is rock solid, and can stream 1080p youtube videos without any buffering.

So obviously without having figured out those 2 issues the router would have been a 1 star review like a lot of people give, but I love the thing, so it gets 5 stars from me.

1 out of 5 eggsQuality Cisco at this Price?

Pros: On Paper, this looks like a great product, QuickVPN software works great on Windows 7 PC's.

Cons: Several users in the office had trouble (but after several restarts sometimes were able to) getting IP's from router. After Cisco support got me to wipe router and reinstall firmware, would no longer connect to PPPoE Internet (as well as previous issue). Cisco support says it's faulty and to return it, but seems like firmware issue to me since some users didn't have issue (didn't seem to matter OS) some of the time, and before wiping, was able to connect to PPPoE. But cisco don't seem to be working on any more firmware updates (mine shipped with latest version). They also informed me that the QuickVPN software does not and there's no plans to make it work with Windows 8! Wasted hours trying to get it working.

Other Thoughts: Cisco doesn't seem to want to support this any longer. This should be the perfect device for our 15 user office, simple network. But a week of headaches and complaints from users I've returned this, and plugged in our old slow dlink router and all problems gone.

1 out of 5 eggsSolid potential, horrible implementation

Pros: - Powers on and typically routes traffic
- Decent hardware
- Fairly broad featureset
- Solid potential

Cons: - ~5 minute reboot period for full initialization
- Slow UI
- Software spent less than 3 minutes in a QA lab
- Firmware upgrades require a factory reset if you want device to be even slightly reliable
- DHCP/DHCP relay is flaky at best
- Port forwarding for select services sometimes stops working for no apparent reason
- Finally can have FW rules between internal subnet's/vlan's in latest code update, but there is no way to do a default 'deny all' rule, making this feature pretty much worthless
- Can't run 2.4/5Ghz mode simultaneously
- My Windows 8 ultrabook & several other random devices will not get DHCP addresses unless I put them on a separate SSID, on a separate VLAN & disable inter-vlan routing
- General quirkyness in operation (see previous comment about 3 minutes in a QA lab)

Other Thoughts: I bought this router for myself at home and a few client sites thinking it would be great in a small biz environment, since it was cisco HW at the right price. Sure I saw some bad reviews, but figured they were just from folks that don't know how to get an iPad connected at Panera. False. I have an advanced level of networking knowledge, and this router (specifically the software, because the hardware seems like it would be capable) is absolute garbage. Little things like having to wait 5+ minutes for a reboot when I want to change a setting on a VLAN.. INDIVIDUALLY, is just one of the frustrations that lie within. Granted, the router is more stable with recent firmware releases, but still is not acceptable in my opinion. Now, that being said, if dd-wrt became available for this unit, I think you would be set, since the hardware in this box seems pretty decent. At any rate, after about 1.5 years, I have given up on this thing getting any better, and are moving myself, and my clients, to ubiquity hardware which I have had much better luck with.

1 out of 5 eggsCISCO small Business = BAD

Pros: It turns on when plugged in and power switch is on

Cons: Many of the advertised features do not work after over 1 year. CISCO hase only released 2 firmware updates in over a year and has fixed few of the devices issues.

Other Thoughts: CISCO has fired many of its employees to cut costs and keep the stock price from falling any more. They have also cut product quality and customer support.
