My experience with the WRV210 has been excellent. This was my first time setting up a VPN. I can assure you that any first time IPSec VPN setup will be tedious. Dealing with routers, modems, firewalls, certificates, and static IP addresses, is no picnic. That said, the WRV210 with QuickVPN client makes the task a good deal easier. I can understand other reviewers, here and elsewhere, that are not as positive regarding the WRV210. But I suspect that their ratings reflect more the tedium of ... the setup process rather than the device itself. And, face it, no one box, or one piece of software, is going to go out there, find the exact network that you care about, configure the routers, the modems, the firewalls, etc. with the exact functionality that you desire. To credit Linksys, the WRV210 User Guide is extensive. In some 75 pages, they clearly discuss many of the issues involved. The Linksys Online Forum was also great at filling in the blanks. More >

Many reviews on this website already mention that this router is a piece of ...! We did not listen to them and decided to try it out. You have to use the latest firmware if you want to have any luck using it, but once you do, expect to reboot the darn thing at least once every two days. Plus, you might have to re-configure it from the beginning. Don't buy!

Needs to be rebooted once a day, or if I'm lucky every other day. Just over a year with having it and it took a dive. CISCO has a 3 year limited warranty, but they make you fax in your receipt to honor it.
