Great Product and Great Price

on 8/11/2007

It is such an pleasure to order this from I infact bought this from bestbuy which i paid for aobut 107 dollar after tax. After I found the product in, i order it again right away and and return the old one back to bestbuy. as for the router itself, it is great, you can setup VPN access to home with little trouble. I bought a Watchguard firewall edge series for 700 dollar at work which i think it was the same way as my linksys. Of course watchguard has anti virus, spam mail and other function which none of it is need it for a home office environment. again great buy and great price

RUN, DON'T WALK TO THE NEXT SUITABLE VPN ROUTER - even if it costs three times the me, you'll be glad you did! After 30-40 wasted hours trying to get this router configured for something as simple as a basic FTP upload...let alone a more complex task like establishing a VPN between offices (which is why I was suckered into buying the unit); it turns out that by the time I realized my folly, the nightmare happened: I am too late to return this pile 'o crap...I'm past 30 days! If you don't believe me, check out the numerous blogs...just Google: "WRV200 FTP issues" I sure wish that I had done so b4 buying this Cisco-embarrassment!

Product Overview

Cisco® Small Business Solutions enable small companies to connect employees, customers, and suppliers - easily, reliably, and affordably. Drawing on a broad portfolio of Cisco products, local partners build and maintain individualized solutions that help small businesses around the world work better.

The Cisco WRV200 Wireless-G VPN Router enables secure, reliable wireless network access for your small business. Its intuitive web-based interface allows you to easily set up its features. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) gives you the ability to remotely manage and monitor the device.

Ten IP Security (IPsec) QuickVPN tunnels with a throughput of 30 Mbps give your mobile workers a secure and easy-to-use way to stay connected. As an essential element of your business, this product provides security functions for authentication, encryption, and firewall.

The VPN router gives your business multiple service set identifiers (SSIDs) and VLANs for traffic separation, and enhanced quality of service (QoS) features for improved voice and video quality. With support for wireless QoS (Wi-Fi Multimedia [WMM]) and wired QoS (port prioritization), consistent voice and video quality is maintained throughout your business.

The RangeBooster technology provides increased range and reliability, using multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO). The RF output allows flexible control of the wireless access coverage.
