Product Reviews
Cisco Small Business RV042G - router - desktop 4.3 5 22 22
When replacing some old, custom Linux firewall/routers, we used the RV042 at the recommendation of a MSP. These little guys are awesome! They are priced right, easy to configure, and are rock solid. The only downside is they are slightly light on features, but that's definitely offset by their price. February 20, 2015
I have setup this for Multi sites, Site to Site IPSec VPN (Supports upto 50 tunnels) connected through Dyn DNS. It has been 4 years and I remember them only when I need to upgrade firmware or setup change like port forwarding or maybe when there is an issue with DSL. Its very easy to setup and simple. This is my first choice for a SMB setup. Best Fits in IT Budget November 20, 2014
Great for secondary gateways and remote offices. Note that VLANs aren't 802.1q, they are just a separation of the same network. DHCP will only work on the primary subnet which only supports /24 or up. Adding static entries into any table is a nightmare. May 8, 2014
Out and outdated. Not worthy of consideration in present times. Even for it's day it wasn't the best. March 26, 2014
I think this might be a consumer grade Cisco unit. Surprising that it would show up here. Don't use in an office. March 23, 2014
Nice little router for the budget minded. Offers lots of features, VPN functionality, dual WAN for load balancing two internet connections or automatic fail over for backup. Very reliable and rock solid. Highly recommended. February 26, 2014
These were not horrible, even though they were a Linksys. Weak and problematic but not as much as many Linksys. Okay for home use or tiny office on a tight budget. January 5, 2014
As far as Linksys units go, this one was pretty good. famously this is one of the ones that Cisco claimed as a Cisco branded unit. January 5, 2014
