RV042 vs RV180

    Hi all,

    I'm currently using two RV042's in two offices as our main routers, with vpn tunnels between the two and multiple subnets setup within one of the sites (one subnet for the servers/systems/printers etc., the other for our voip phones).

    For the most part, the RV042's have been serving us well but the two offices are now starting to grow so we're in need of more capacity. I've been considering moving to the RV180 as a replacement for both sites, but I was hoping to gather some opinions or insights first. I came across this article, and it offered some pretty good stats, but I'm still a little murky on some of the differences between the two routers. Plus I can't quite figure out why the RV042 is usually more expensive than the RV180 (the only reason I can see is due to the 180 only having one WAN port, whereas the 042 has 2).


    So, what are your thoughts? Is the RV180 worth upgrading to (and is it even really an upgrade from the RV042?), or would I be better served moving to a higher line in the Cisco family for our routing needs.
