5 out of 5 eggsBargain of the century

Pros: Due to the Vitesse VSC7385 managed gigabit switch module used in the RVS4000, I bought my first one 23-April-2013 -- it works perfectly with Comcast, Motorola SB6121 and four GiGE LAN switches.

I bought a 2nd one 9-May-2013 as a backup and for nmap and speed tests on my LAN and it works perfectly to my satisfaction.

Note the L2 Switch menu for enabling Jumbo frames.

Note firmware updates and release notes are on Cisco's site.

Do NOT enable telnet via because that opens port 23 on BOTH the WAN and LAN.

Anyone who cannot get the RVS4000 to work is incompetent; I base that on my computer and networking experience since the 1960s.

Feel welcome to join the Yahoo linux group for more info about this router. I've discussed it also on Usenet's ba.internet ("ba" = SF Bay Area aka Silicon Valley) group.

Cons: None of the Cisco data sheets, release notes or manuals mention the RVS4000 easily handles Jumbo Frames (9K). Anyone competent with networking and the OSI Model knows that Layer 2 is where such things are specified and, in fact, they are settable in the RVS4000's "L2 Switch" menu.

The illustrations in the Cisco manual are illegible and unreadable; connecting to one of the unit's LAN ports and logging in using a browser allows all the menu pages to be clearly seen.

Oddly, for a company like Cisco, the user web interface is optimized for the IE browser; one cannot log out using Firefox and the V2 release notes state one just needs to close the browser to logoff. I fired up my 1998 IBM Thinkpad with Win98SE to do all the configs -- took only a few minutes because the menu structures are 100% reminiscent of all my SonicWALL routers including my 10-year-old SonicWALL TZ-170 which the RVS4000 now replaces (mostly because the TZ170's WAN, LAN and DMZ ports were capped at 100Mbps and my LAN is now all GiGE and the Motorola SB6121 I bought from Newegg last month is also gigabit).

Other Thoughts: One needs to do both due diligence and have an understanding of networking to be able to configure and use the RVS4000 properly -- it's NOT a toy.

Since the mid-1990s I've installed 100s of SonicWALL applianes at client and employer sites. Though DELL recently bought SonicWALL, the license "issues" still exist; the RVS4000 has NO such license issues.

The only other two similar products I found that are worth buying are the SonicWALL TZ205 ($463) and TZ215 ($650) which are also sold by Newegg. If I wasn't retired and on a limited budget I probably would have bought one of those. Sorry, Newegg. :-)

1 out of 5 eggsadvertised as Cisco certified

Pros: If it had worked I could have evaluated the product. Since it didn't we will have to wait on the replacement unit.

Cons: Could not acquire an IP address from my ISP.
