RV042 v3 can't authenticate, can't log in, can't VPN

I have a new RV042 v3. It functions fine as a router and forewall but unless I reboot it, I lose the ability to log in to the web interface from the LAN or VPN in from the WAN, It is as if the authentication stops working.

After a day or so, when I try to log in via a web browser (any browser) the little spinny thing twirls for a few revolutions then stops and then nothing.

VPN access also works for a day or two and then the connection attempt just times out, even trying different accounts.

I upgraded to the lates firmware and that didn't help. Cisco sent me a new one, that didn't help either.

     Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Same exact problem here.  No help from anyone anywhere.  :-(

Seriously, how hard is it to coordinate among the giant companies and just deliver products that work together????  The RV042 is supposed to be "business class" and is sold as a small business router.  Connecting iOS devices from disparate IPs (while out and about at airports, random coffee shops, etc.) via VPN is *exactly* what small businesses want.  Why isn't this a two click solution?

AAARGH!  Not Happy.

Hi, My name is Eric Moyers. I am a Network Support Engineer in the Cisco Small Business Support Center. Thank you for using the Cisco Community Post Forums.

I am sorry to hear about your issues.

Mr. Konc, could you give me your case number I would like to look into it.

captain murf, when you say iOS devices, are you talking apple products? Or do you mean IOS enterprise devices? Apple products and VPN are a unique setup to any network device. What exactly are you trying to do, I will try to help.  Have you called in before, if so what was your case number as well.
