  • 1Description

The RV042G Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Router from Cisco features four Gigabit Ethernet ports, one Internet port and one DMZ Internet port. The four Gigabit Ethernet ports are capable of handling data transfer speeds up to 800 Mbps while the Internet port is an RJ-45 port designed to connect the router to the Internet. The DMZ/Internet port also located on the back of the router is a port designed to add an additional layer of security to a LAN providing an external attacker with restricted access to equipment in the DMZ.

    Cisco RV042G-K9-NA reviews

    RV042G Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Router is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fine Dual WAN router for small setups. I purchased this to balance two internet-connections to a small office to ensure business continuity. It does perform this function, however, it is perhaps not intended to handle quite as much stress as even a small business will apply to it, as its reliability is not 100%. We somewhat often partially lose connectivity, with some of the computers down and some of them up. However, I was aware that such would probably be the case when purchasing it, but the decision was not mine as I was merely told to price shop for the most affordable Dual WAN router. If you want to load balance two connections in a home office or home setup, this would probably work excellently and is quite affordable in that case.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Simple configuration UI, ships with bugs This router has a simple management UI which makes it very easy to set up. The VPN configuration is the simplest one I've seen in all of the business-class routers I've used - just one page, and you can see the entire VPN definition. This is the simplest implementation, and I prefer this approach best. The router's claimed NAT throughput speed is 800mbps, but reality is very different. On a 150mbps connection, I get a maximum throughput of about 132mbps. If you look up this router in various forums, there are many postings from users who have 1gbps connections - lucky them - who complain that they can only get max speeds around 135mbps. Those postings are more than a year old. The other gotcha with this router is that the management UI becomes unresponsive - as in, you can't log in to the router to do any configuration work - after it's been running for more than about 24 hours. Any attempts to connect to the management UI simply times out after a few mintues. There are forum postings about this problem that date back more than a year. So, the first thing I did when I got this router was to update the firmware. The currently shipping firmware DOES NOT fix the above two problems I mentioned. However, if you call the Cisco small biz tech support and describe the problem to them, they will escalate your case and you will be given new, beta firmware that does fix these two problems (you'll have to agree to a beta test contract first). So, overall, the router is usable AFTER you get the newest beta firmware. It's performance is reasonably fast, and configuration is easy. It can be remote managed, and it even has a local DNS server inside. I don't use VoIP with this particular router, so I can't vouch for that - I've seen forum posts from users whose VoIP don't work with this router. It's disappointing that a company as big as Cisco doesn't act fast enough to fix long-standing problems and release the fixed firmware officially. But, to their credit, they did finally fix the two most annoying problems - even if they do force you into installing beta software.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Router I am in a medium sized business that cannot afford to have any equipment failure. This router does the job.. and then some! Well built and reliable performance...just like my business!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service Easy Install I received great and quick service from B&H. I purchased this router to learn about network features and configuration. The router has quite a few advanced features but still supports web-page style interface as opposed to command line interface. I have not gotten around to the advanced features, but the install into my existing network was clean and simple. Most importantly it worked out of the box. This fits my purposes quite well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small business network We had to engineer a network for a small hotel and this fit several needs. It is inexpensive (by Cisco standards), can become a firewall, and NAT our internal addresses. We had planned on a simpler single WAN version, but upon discovering that Comcast Hospitality provided two modems for every location regardless of what you want, we decided to use one model for our VoIP traffic and the other for all other traffic. This router allowed us to separate that traffic right at the entry DEMARC, and keep it separate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router I live in a rural area with a cable provider that is at the mercy of 10000 trees and branches. Accordingmy, the internet goes down frequently. We have good 4G reception from ATT and i use a wireless modem as backup to the cable. This router allowed me to automate the fail over and fail back. It has additional capabilities too. Works like a Cisco.
