Cisco RV042 4-port 10/100 VPN Router - Dual WAN
The Cisco RV042 4-port 10/100 VPN Router is an advanced Internet-sharing network solution for your small business needs. Like any router, it lets multiple computers in your office share an Internet connection. But the unique dual Internet ports on the 10/100 4-Port VPN Router let you connect a second Internet line as a backup to insure that you're never disconnected. Or, use both Internet ports at the same time, and let the router balance your office's requirements between them for maximum bandwidth efficiency.
The Cisco RV042 4-port 10/100 VPN Router also features a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Ethernet switch to connect four PCs directly, or you can connect more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need.
The Cisco RV042 4-port 10/100 VPN Router can serve as a DHCP Server, and has a powerful SPI firewall to protect your PCs against intruders and most known Internet attacks. It can be configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet, and the Cisco RV042 4-port 10/100 VPN Router has IP address filtering so you can specify exactly who has access to your network. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.

This Router gave me the option to use 2 separate dsl lines to create a single 12mb internet connect according to speed test. Love it and works great.
Great Product - Just don't expect too much.
The RV042 is ROCK SOLID. I haven't had a single issue with it and I've POKED AND PRODDED quite a bit trying to get the best settings for my installation. As a gateway router for a fail-over internet line this unit is top notch. If your looking for extra bandwidth via Dual-Wan and your internet provider doesn't yet provide multi or bonded lines then this is the device to use. If your looking at this for the VPN features then this may not be the answer as I've read many posts about the 50 VPN's feature being a TOTAL OVERSELL. I didn't buy it for that. At the time, my DSL provider was having reliability issues and I wanted to insulate myself from their issues while also fully utilizing the full bandwidth I'd have to pay for if I had a backup provider. RV042 was the perfect solution.
Very good router.
Everything worked great. Bandwidth management very good. Connected one pppoe wan and one dhcp wan. No problems setting up. Highly recommended.
Tested, Tried, and Proven to Work
This has become my preferred router of choice for my SOHO clients. The dual wan solution works perfectly, bandwidth controls are awesome, and VPN is one of the simplest I have ever seen.
Setup still in process
My computer guy was able to convert my LAN and connect to the fiber optics internet lines, but hasn't been able to get the remote VPN access finalized yet. Probably just an issue of knowing how it works -- he was going to consult with a friend who's had more experience with this particular function.
