While I usually rave about the Cisco/Linksys products, this particular model is one to avoid. Although it has an impressive list of features for the price, it does not perform as advertised. I have had two of these units for a year, and every version of firmware was worse than the last. Whining noises, DHCP issues, They don't permit FTP transfers, ICL issues, Wireless issues, etc. The company has been slow to address these issues, the phone staff dont have info in their db, and their forums are full of folks sharing the same concerns. I wouldn't be surprised to see a recall or class action for this model. As I write this(2/2008), the current firmware is from October 2007, and has many of these issues. It's possible that they have been addressed since I wrote this, so check their forums to be sure. I have two of these myself, and recommended them to about a half dozen clients. I wish I had not done so, and hope that they get their act together so the product delivers the functionality it advertises. Mike www.getthepictureframing.com

Great features, extremely powerful wireless range. I have seen some bad reviews on orignal firmware for this router, but everything has been fixed on these with r2. I do alot of setups for small to mid size businesses and this router is on the top of my list for a new office setup.

Good, but needs some fixes

by kj on 6/12/2007

It is a very good router and as an overall it is worth every penny, but some stuff needs to be fixed like: some network g will not work with it, I hope they offer a couple of firmware updates that can work for wan using ip v6, there is a couple of improvemnets you can change some settings with out restarting, but it would have been better if you didn't have to restart at all.

Features
High-speed connectivity: Gigabit Ethernet connections on both WAN and LAN ports help you take full advantage of your broadband connections, enabling your employees to send and receive large files quickly and easily.
Integrated 802.11n wireless access point: A built-in access point enables your employees to connect to the network wirelessly. Support for draft 2.0 of the 802.11n industry standard, along with backward compatibility with 802.11b and g standards, increases wireless speed, throughput, and range, for more efficient wireless coverage of your small office.
Proven Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall with Intrusion Prevention System (IPS): Unlike standard firewalls, which block incoming streams based only on the source or type of data, the intrusion prevention system scans deep, enabling it to detect and block most worms, Trojan horses, and denial-of-service attacks to help keep your business assets safe.
VPN capabilities: IP Security (IPsec) VPN capabilities built into the WRVS4400N enable your remote employees, whether working from home or on the road, to connect to your office network using nearly any VPN client to access files and transfer data as securely as if they were in the office.
Optional Cisco ProtectLink Web security service: This optional hosted service adds another layer of protection to your network by blocking malicious websites and controlling web access, without the drain on your office PCs caused by traditional security solutions.
Flexible segmentation of users: Flexible, built-in support for up to 4 multiple service set identifiers (SSIDs) and up to four 802.1Q virtual LAN (VLAN) connections enables the creation separate virtual networks to allow secure guest access and improve traffic flow (Figure 2). The WRVS4400N can interoperate with other VLAN-capable switches, further enhancing flexibility.
Limited lifetime warranty.
