RV016 v1 Hardware VPN Throughput?

Samir Darji
Contributor
Contributor

I'd like to know what type of VPN throughput I should be seeing for the rv016 connected via a site-to-site vpn.  One of my connections has a t1 while the other has 4mbps upload bandwidth.  I know that would translate to roughly 100k/sec and 400k/sec, but I don't think I'm seeing anything near that.

Any opinions and experiences appreciated.

I hope you find this information helpful and please let me know if there is any further assistance I may help you with.

Thank you for the quick reply, but I believe this is for v3 hardware.  I want to know what the earlier models are supposed to be capable of.  Do you have anything for v1 hardware?

Hello Samir,

Unfortunately I have found no related documentation on the version 1 of the RV016 router, neither I can run the test since I have no access to one.  I suggest you to contact the Small Business Support Center to find out if they can provide you the requested info;

Please do not hesitate to reach me back if there is any further assistance we may help you with.

Thanks again,

I'm about to get rid of my rv016 v1 because I need something that will do wire speed.  If you can create any test data for the v1 hardware, I will keep these in service.

Is there any information like this for the rv042 v1 hardware?  That might help me as well.

So the answer to my original question, which I recently tested on a rv016 v1 hardware  v3.0.0.19tm firmware, the maximum site-to-site vpn throughput I was able to get via iperf was between 45-50+ Mbits/sec, which is also the fastest I found it can do on the WAN.

What surprised me is that it bested a current model Netgear FVS318N which could only do about 20Mbits/sec on the same VPN test.

Newer isn't always better. ;)  This almost 10 year old rv016 will return to service this year.
