1 out of 5 eggsWhat support?

Pros: Connects easily as a basic DHCP router using defaults

Cons: Unsupported by Cisco unless the customer is willing to pay.

Repeated inquiries about setting up a VPN with a Dynamic DNS other than by using Cisco partners who charge a monthly fee are met with instructions to buy support.

Repeated attempts to sign up for a user account are ignored (no response appears to have been sent to confirm enrollment).

Links to "downloadable" CISCO client software from the HTTP user interface in the router are bad. When brought to Cisco's attention their response is instructions to buy Cisco support.

As noted elsewhere in these reviews the firmware absolutely positively must be updated before attempting to install the router..

Even after updating the firmware the internal HTML user interface contains bad links to the Cisco client VPN software. When the bad links are brought to Cisco's attention their reply is to request that you pay for technical support to resolve their firmware's bad links.

Setting up a VPN behind a DSL or cable modem where the ISP IP may change from time to time appears impossible unless you either pay Cisco for technical support or pay Cisco "partners" a monthly fee for the same Dynamic Name Server service available, and working, at your own name servers.

Other Thoughts: Cisco seems to be redefining "hubris" with this premium priced product. The features that sort of work "out of the box" do not distinguish it from other vendor's $30 routers.

Physically this router feels solid and likely to outlast the $30 alternatives. Considering how fast technology changes it doesn't make much sense to spend 5 times as much. Three years from now you will have to cope with new technologies and the Cisco RV-320 will still be an obscure, obsolete, and possibly still unsupported, robustly constructed door stop.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat technical support?

Pros: Works as a simple router -- sort of.

Cons: Alleged "technical support" is simply a request for money

Other Thoughts: It's imperative to upgrade the firmware immediately.

If you can make do with Cisco's defaults it's pretty easy to install as a DHCP router.

Be prepared to tithe to CISCO if you want to do more than live with defaults, however.

If you are behind a DSL or Cable connection where the ISP assigned IP address may change, any chance of making a credible VPN connection without monthly payments to a Cisco dynamic DNS "partner" appears slim to none -- even if you have your own remote name server able to return the currently assigned IP.

As for Cisco's VPN clients advertised in the router's helps as though part of the router package, the links are bad so grab your credit card...

Cisco technical support is second only to reading messages scratched on public bathroom walls. All Cisco wants to know is which support plan you have purchased. No plan? Well, try the third stall on the left...

This may be an excellent piece of hardware, but without any support it's a bit like taking a statue to a sock-hop.

3 out of 5 eggsLooking for a new solution

Pros: Can use Dual WAN and Verizon LTE. Has Gigabit ports

Cons: I have an RV082 that works pretty good. I have 2 DSL Connections at 1.25 Mbps ea. When I do a Speed Test, it shows 2.5 Mbps.

This device only shows 1.25 on the speed test, and Tech Support is stumped. They say these RV devices will only use one or the other WAN Port. So I remote into a computer on one of the other 4 networks I have running a Cisco RV series router, and show them the speed test on those setups. When they see the 2.5 Mbps, they are friendly, but they just scratch their heads. I have purchased several of the RV series because of there load balancing function.

Other Thoughts: Some cool features on this device, but if Cisco is moving away from load balancing, and moving just toward a round robin configuration, I need to find a new solution soon for my next install next week... 1.25 Mbps is CRAZY. 2.5 Mbps is just a pleasant miserable... The 10/100 Ports on the RV082 was great 10 years ago, but not very impressive now.

2 out of 5 eggsNot as advertised.

Pros: This device is an extremely excellent selection for basic features. It has a simple, user friendly interface on the firewall, DHCP and DNS servers, easy setup for VLAN, DHCP relay and MAC filtering, so on. Most of all, X.509 certificate administration is as easy as it can be.

Cons: There are two very important limitations on advertised features that are not documented anywhere in print or on device .

First, enabling DMZ mode on the WAN2 interface disables NAT on that interface. So if you want to hide multiple public facing devices behind a single public address, you have to setup a VLAN and use port forwarding for public traffic and firewall rules to isolate the VLANs. This is a perfectly valid way to go, but why not make NAT togglable on the DMZ interface? Why force the user away from other valid setups?

Second, IPSec functionality is extremely limited. The device only supports IKEv1, which does not support mobile connectivity without certificates and the RV320's certificate based IKE tunnel requires the remote host to have a static IP. So there is no mobile IPSec tunneling. Further, Windows requires certificates for all IKE tunnels, so no IPSec tunneling to home users either. IPSec with manual keying only supports 3DES encryption, which might as well be clear text.. Not surprisingly, the encryption available on the PPTP tunnel is also weak encryption. PPTP. So unless all hosts involved in the tunnel have static public IP addresses, there is no secure tunneling option available through this device.

Other Thoughts: Admittedly, the configuration I wanted to go with is not the standard config. However, i have non-standard needs. All of the features that I need are available on the device, they just don't all inter-operate, which seems like lazy firmware programming to me. The device can handle AES-256, it just doesn't allow it on manual IPSec keying or non-IPSec tunnels. It can handle dynamic public IPs, just not with certificates. It has IKE, just not the latest version. It has NAT on the WAN2 interface, but forcibly disables it when enabling DMZ mode.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent RV320

Pros: Super fast, easy to setup. I set this up using Verizon USB LTE card and 100/25MB Cable connection. VLAN was easy to setup and routes great with my 6 Cisco 3750 switches. Connected 22 VoIP Cisco SPAs wtih out a problem all tagged. 6 AP's and over 80 devices. Setup 6 G2G tunnels, SSL VPN, and L2TP/PPTP 4 different groups and a few remote machines. Great little router for cheap m0ney. Tried to beat this thing up and max it out but it keeps on going without any problems for 8 months now.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsThis device was a huge disappointment

Pros: Let me start by saying this product does have some great features for it's price point. VLAN support, Active Directory authentication, PKI(.X509) and so on. The main feature supported by this device, the feature that really made me want to buy it, is the VPN functionality. I wanted to be able to access my home office securely while I'm away at work doing what I do best.

Cons: The frustration I have with this device is the constant VPN connectivity issues. When I connect to the device using the VPN client software that ships with the device, I'm always getting disconnected and sometimes, the device will not let me reconnect again. After doing some investigating, I found that when I am disconnected from the VPN server, the device loses it WAN IP configuration and fails to automatically reconfigure it's WAN IP. I have to manually go into the web interface for the device and renew the WAN IP, very annoying. I upgraded the device to the latest firmware version ( and still, I'm having VPN connectivity issues.

Other Thoughts: My thoughts to whoever may be considering this product is this. If you are looking for a simple, affordable VPN server solution, I would not recommend this device. I would, on the other hand, recommend this device to anyone who needs a decent firewall appliance. The firewall feature in this device is excellent, as well as some of the other features, in my opinion.

1 out of 5 eggsRV320 okay at first then slowly drives you insane!

Pros: The RV320 is a working router with good throughput, and the web UI is fast enough to be usable, much improved from the RV180.

Cons: The RV320 seems to randomly drop outbound connections, which leads to high TCP retransmission on approx 1% of outbound connections. This causes occasional web page load failures, broken picutres, and missing CSS. It also seems to break about 5% of outbound SSH connections.

Other Thoughts: After being very confused about what was going on, I used tcpdump to look at at packets on inside and outside of firewall and noted that it is causing excessive TCP retransmissions, but they seem to be confined to a radomly selected fraction of TCP connectons, as if there is a serious bug in the TCP connection tracking code. Also, it seems to be playing with TCP timestamps and unnecessarliy rewriting TCP source ports. Maybe it just doesn't like Linux boxes, which is strange, becuase it is one.

4 out of 5 eggsCisco RV320

Pros: Very Good throughput
Easy to Install
Easy to Configure

Cons: You have to update the firmware on some units.

I have three of these and had to update the firmware on two. The last one I purchased had the latest firmware already installed.

Updating the firmware is very easy. You download the file from Cisco's website and use the routers web interface to update.

Other Thoughts: Great product. I have two on a point to point VPN and have never had ANY problems, It just works.

The other is a VPN router for mobile users. Use Cisco's Easy VPN Client software on the laptops. Works great.
