We bought 2 of these based upon a Linksys tech recommendation for a hardware VPN and firewall combination. We use them to share files between my SOHO and corporate office. Being my first VPN install, it took a while of reading and trying but after figuring out the correct IP numbers, they work 100% as expected. A very nice feature is the more "pro" look interface and very detailed logging ability. IMO: these are a step up from the standard blue cased Linksys components you normally see. All steel cases, more detailed menu options, beefier powersupply, etc. Overall, I give this router and strong A grade. Had the documentation and help files been more detailed, it would get a full A+. BTW: my only stumbling point was in finally figuring out (tollfree call to techsupport) that the "shared access key" cannot contain any numbers, it's alpha only which the doc's forgot to mention.

Great VPN Head with some VPN Knowledge

by oj.utter@mvpmt.com on 12/27/2006

This is a great VPN router with the ability to have 50+ VPN connecdtions. The setup between this router and another Linksys router was a little difficult due to different terminology between the 2 but after it was completed it worked great. We are connected to linksys and sonicwall end point routers and also are using PPTP software VPN connections. Overall value of this router for price and it ability is well worth the difficultly in the inital setup. If you have experience with VPN setup then this will be a breeze. Read More

Product Overview

The Cisco® RV042 Dual WAN VPN Router is an advanced connection-sharing network solution for your small business needs. Like any router, it lets multiple computers in your office share a connection to a public or private network. However, with dual WAN ports, the Cisco RV042 lets you use a second connection as a backup to help you stay connected, or it can be used to access a second provider to increase available bandwidth and balance traffic.

The Cisco RV042 also features a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Ethernet switch to connect four PCs directly, or you can connect more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need.

The VPN capability creates encrypted "tunnels" through the Internet, based on IP Security (IPsec) or Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), allowing up to 50 remote offices or traveling users to securely connect into your office network from offsite. Users connecting through a VPN tunnel are attached to your company's network -- with secure access to files, email, and your intranet -- just as if they were in the building. You can also use the VPN capability to allow users on your small office network to securely connect to a corporate network.

The Cisco RV042 can serve as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server and has a powerful stateful packet inspection (SPI) firewall to protect your PCs against intruders and most known Internet attacks. It also supports the Trend Micro ProtectLink Gateway Security Service, which enables you to dynamically block unwanted or unsafe URLs and emails. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.

As the heart of your small office network, the connection-redundant Cisco RV042 Dual WAN VPN Router gives you the connection reliability your business needs.
