Solid Wireless Router

by Frrank on 5/23/2013

Works great! Took our existing WRVS4400N router and saved its config. Then unplugged it, restored the config on our new router, rebooted and viola :) Plugged original router back in and now we have wi-fi signal across the office! Great product with numerous options available to customize settings.

Great Features/Easy to Use

by Lloyd E. on 8/24/2013

I purchased two of these routers -- one for the office and one for home because I needed to set up a VPN between the two and its easier to do so (at least for me) with two identical units. The user interface and the instructions made it easy to set up the VPN, and all other features of this product that I have used function as promised. As the product specifications indicate, this router has only four LAN ports, which is no problem for me at home but which is insufficient for my office. I added additional LAN ports by adding a switch by the same manufacturer. I am not an IT pro by any stretch of the imagination (I'm a small non-tech business owner) and all of this was pretty easy to do with my lay person's basic working knowledge.

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. The WRVS4400N can interoperate with other VLAN-capable switches, further enhancing flexibility.
