    Since there have been a lot of negative stuff up here on the RVS4000 I though I would post something positive. I just picked one up and loaded 1.0.15 and can’t really complain. Overall I am very pleased with it.

    The ping to the device its self is between 4 and 50 ms which is odd (I think linksys cheeped out on the board to keep the price down which is BS to me, id rather pay some extra to get a better box) but pings across the device are perfect.

    I have had no problems with speed through the firewall, I setup a FTP server on the wan interface and was able to push at 62mb and pull at 65mb (on a 500mb file).

    I have mapped FTP, SMTP, HTTP(S), POP, IMAP, and SSH ports my servers with no problems, everything runs just as I would expect.

    The IDS works well. (although it is lacking explanations of the attacks and linksys’s descriptions don’t directly match up with what you can find on google)

    The VPN client works well, the only problem I had was going from 192.168.0 to 192.168.0 but lets face it the real cisco client cant even do that right.

    The only real complaint I have is the documentation, it give you nice and generic answers on what options do and I feel that the advanced options should be document so you can gain some incite in to how the box handles the option, what you can expect to gain from it, like “Flow Controlâ€. That being said, I guess this is a consumer device and end losers don’t care about any of that stuff.

    This router has an outstanding throughput(800Mbps) according to the specs, but I´m a bit confused when you here mention 62 resp 65 mb - this should be explained ......

    furthermore there is NO public independent review of this router - how come? it´s almost a year since this product hit the shelves ....
