Never ever rv220w again

Level 1
Level 1


Just bought this router as Cisco have a good reputation, but i've never owned a product that's so Beta'ish. Allmost nothing is working as it should with firmware, and it has not been updated since August 2012.

I've tried to setup normal portforward, without luck, i've tried to setup PPTP VPN, but having problems, if i do it like the manual says(Same network as VLan error). Simple things that should be working on a product like this, without any problems.

I'm for sure going to return this router to the seller.

Best regards

Those features work fine... before venting your frustration about how much bad the product is, I'd recommend to call support since it is free to you and you can have someone that is obligated to make it work, make it work.

Hi Thomas,

I would have thoght that August 2012 release firmware would still count as current. To release firmware in a complex product requires a lot of testing (hopefully!) and did fix a lot of bugs. I would hope that Cisco is working a new release however I would not have expected it to be released yet.

Your problem sounds like it could be a set-up problem. It seems that a lot of users have got PPTP VPN working. If you are still having problems then provide some information for the forum People like Tom are very helpful and seem very

knowledgeable. Alternatively you can place a call with Cisco.

Goold luck,
