Great option for SOHO for Cisco Networks12/7/2010
If you are comfortable with Cisco IOS, this is an excellent option. If you are a home user looking for a "super router", you might do better looking at a consumer grade router running DD-WRT. I loaded these with IOS 15.1(3)T and installed advanced IP services. This unit has the FULL range of options you expect from Cisco IOS 15.1 on an ISR. I was able to enable Cisco's new Performance Monitor architecture and track VOIP and tele-presence Jitter and TCP round trip time via Netflow using Scrutinizer Netflow Analyzer from Plixer. Also using the Flexible Netflow option, so I can trend by application and pin down p2p traffic. The Draft N wireless works well, but the configuration interface could be less complicated. The Java configuration application (launched from the internal http/https server) was a bit clunky when I tried it out, but I like to config via IOS command line anyway, so this is a non issue for me. All and all, I got some great routers at a great price. I am very happy with my purchase. This thing can do things that other devices just can't.
