Ease of Use


by James on 6/22/2013

I purchased this router for a small Lan. I needed a VPN firewall to allow remote access to my LAN. I had issues as soon as I plugged this unit in. The router, in thoery, is full of features. However the issues I have had with it have cost me dearly in down time and aggrevation. 1.) Router has issue with DNS routing when network is at peak load. We see many "Page cannot be displayed" errors regularly across our network. 2.) Router is responsible for email attachments and file downloads being corrupted. 3.) Cisco support is zip, zero, nil on these issues. After two weeks of headaches, and wasting time and effort on this unit, I am going to try to return it. There are just too many issues for this to be relied upon on our network. I don't know if it is a firmware or hardware issue. My opinion: LOOK AT OTHER UNITS until CISCO fixes this unit. Look at the CISCO support threads if you need other opinions. I wish I saw all the issues with this and other RV routers before I purchased this.
