Cisco Routers :: RV042 / RV042G / Small Business Routers With Inter-VLAN Capability
Aug 22, 2012
I was looking for a small business router that has VPN support and dual WAN support for load balancing. Upon reading reviews, I think RV042/RV042G is a good choice. Now am thinking if it supports intervlan/ router-on-a-stick configuration?
I am having difficulty with gateway to gateway vpn on RV042.I have site A and site B, both have static IP address,local IP at site A is 192.168.1.0 local IP at site B is 192.168.5.0I have configured each site as directed in the documentation, the sites connect ok within the admin consoles, I cannot browse any resources from either site. Site A is a domain.local and I am part of that domain at site B. I can ping site B local address from site A and vice versa however I can not ping any of the servers or NAS devices on either network. the only device I can ping successfully inside the network is a phone server (splicecom unit).
I have read various posts in the discussion boards but have found no resolve. Internet access is fine from either site. I think that it could possibly be a DNS issue but am unsure, should I add DNS entries in the advanced section, if so what DNS would I enter?
I'm trying to configure the newly install Cisco Small Business router SRP527W. This router is provide by one of Malaysia ISP
Problem I found is that, when a user (me) login to the router via web access, than I request my colleague (B), to test the feature I set to the router and try to login to the router via web access at his laptop.
Suprise, suprise, user B redirect to the basic setup page with Admin privilege without enter username and password. By upgrade latest firmware still unable to solve it.
The router keeps loosing connection to the internet. I can still log into the router locally but cant connect out or in from the internet. Which is a big problem as i use this device remotely. I have tried different firmware (.9, .19, .27) the .19 seems to be the most stable but i am still having problems. The only way to rectify it is to reboot the router. Is there a fix for this or a way to schedule a reboot on the router.
I saw older discussions over WOL and RV082/RV042. As router blocks broadcast packets from internet to lan, to make WOL work, i should change router's ARP table using telnet, probably with V1 and V2 versions this action was possible, but trying telnet connection (http://<Router IP Address>/ sysinfo123.htm?ConsoleSimulation=1 with RV082 V3 nothing appears, and telnet connection on standard port (23) fails.
How to make pass WOL magic packets through a RV082 V3 from internet to LAN ? Using simply port forwarding don't work, as router discard broadcast packets incoming from internet.
I have been trying to configure a local DMZ on our network with the Cisco Small Business RV220W router, running the latest 188.8.131.52 firmware but it doesn't seem to be fully functional? Does the DMZ feature actually do anything at the current state of this router? Because when I tried to DMZ host a computer on our local network I still had to manually port forward different applications in order for people to reach it from WAN.
For instance when trying to host a game session, utilizing TCP port 7777 it didn't matter whether I had enabled DMZ or not, I was still required to manually port forward the port to the DMZ IP-address.
Doesn't this defeat and eliminate the whole purpose of the DMZ feature in the first place?
I currrently have the RVS4000 and am looking at the RV180, but I'm having an issue with the RV180 supporting the Dynamic DNS service I need (see here). In that discussion, it seems what would be ideal for me is a router running IOS so I could customize the Dyanmic DNS client on there to fit my needs. However, is there any "affordable" router running IOS that's similar to the RV180 tailored to a small business without getting an overkill router?
Here's my basic needs:Router either compatible with DNS Made Easy's Dynamic DNS service OR has the ability to customize the Dynamic DNS client on there so I can adapt it for DNS Made Easy.I DO NOT need wireless. We only need Ethernet/wired.I prefer Gigabit Ethernet.We're not currently using ProtectLink, so if it offers the ability for it, great, if not, fine.We have our own VPN service and don't need to access the network remotely (just remote into one device using Dynamic DNS), so if it has built-in VPN, great, if not, fine.I'd like IPS included. Our RVS4000 has it and I like this feature.We're switching to cable broadband and VOIP through our cable company, so QoS should probably be included.
Cisco RV016 Small Business Router (firmware version 4.0.4.02-tm) . We have several old RV series Linksys, and the interface seem identical to this new Cisco version so it isnt difficult to have it configured. However, I am facing issues. I cannot ping from untrust to WAN IP of the router. However pinging from trust to any IP is just fine.
I tried disabling firewall, I also created a firewall rule that allows all ICMP from ANY to ANY. I also tried All traffic from Any to Any. But still the WAN1 and WAN2 IP addresses (Multiple ISP) still does not reply to ICMP.
One of our locations recently upgraded their VPN router from a Netgear FVS318 to the Cisco Small Business Router RV042
My location uses the Linksys RV042v1.2. We can't get the VPN to connect. The VPN set up screens are similar, but there some parameters that we had to adjust. The SA Lifetime parameter for the Cisco Router defaulted to 86400 Secs (Phase 1 & 2) The SA Lifetime parameter for the Linksys only goes to 28800. So we adjusted the Cisco RV042 to match out Linksys RV042.
That's the only difference in the screens that I see. The Cisco has additional paramters under "Advanced", but they're all unchecked by default.
When they shipped the Netgear FVS318 over to us, we get the VPN to function, however, the Netgear has a max throughput of 10Mbps. (we get 4-5Mbps on Speedtest.net). The RV042 gives me over 40Mbps (Optimum Business w/Ultimate)
I tried both firmware updates on the RV042v1.2 RV042 v184.108.40.206 RV042 v1.3.13.02
Any compatibility issues between the different versions of the RV042?
Is there any way to granularly allow hosts from one vlan to be able to access another vlan with Inter-VLAN routing DISABLED?Can the use of an ACL override the setting?In general I don't want any traffic between VLAN's but there are 2 hosts on one VLAN that I would want to allow access to a server on another VLAN.
I just received my rv220w and perhaps I haven't got enough experience with cisco routers. How can I restrict traffic between different VLANs?
For example: Hosts in one VLAN shall only be allowed to access a web server in another VLAN. All other traffic should be blocked. I've created two VLAN with Inter VLAN Routing enabled. But it seems there's no way to install a firewall rule between VLANs.
Ports 1 through 3 are configured for VLAN1 and right now I have one PC connected directly to port 1 and nothing connected to ports 2 or 3. Port 4 is configured for VLAN10 with a managed switch (also configured on VLAN10) connected to it. There are 4 wireless access points connected to the switch.
On the Setup->Advanced Routing page of the RVS4000 I have the Inter-VLAN Routing option set to Disabled. Yet when I connect to one of the wireless access points and receive a 192.168.10.x address, I can ping the PC connected to port 1 which has a 192.168.1.x address.
Also, I would like VLAN10 to not have access to the Management GUI on the RVS4000.
I picked up a pair of RV220W's and before I spent loads of time at a remote site, I figured I'd go through some VPN testing at home to make sure I could get it setup properly. What this means is I've plugged the Internet uplink into a switch, then from the switch into both routers & configured them (using unique static IP's for each) from there. For what its worth: While I have some IT experience, I don't have strong networking experience.
I setup several VLAN's on the local RV220W, and the end result is to make it so that an asset at the remote site with an IP in any of the ranges (192.168.121.0/24, 192.168.131.0/24, 192.168.141.0/24 and any future VLANs) can communicate with/access resouces at the local site. Likewise, an asset at the local site with an IP in any of the ranges (.121, .131, .141 + any future VLANs) should be able to reach the remote resources (currently just 192.168.181.0/24, but future VLANs as well).
This evening I tried to focus on the relevant VPN pages of the Administration Guide to get the VPN up. Leaving the defaults I got as far as establishing a link between both sites and it seems that things are working right: From the remote site (.181) I can access the local site (.121, .131, .141); and from the local site I can at least ping resources (a laptop) on the remote site. (Yay!)
However, when I physically connected an asset that had a 192.168.121.X, 192.168.131.X and 192.168.141.X IP addresses to the remote RV220W (which is 192.168.181.0/24), I couldn't see it from the remote or local sites.I assume this is expected. But I'm reaching out to the community to see what other possibilities might be available becuase networking is a weak area for me. I figured it might be something like a Static [or Dynamic] Route but I really am not 100% sure.
Local Router LAN/WAN Settings: LAN IP: 192.168.121.1 on default VLAN (1) VLAN 13 defined 192.168.131.1 with DHCP enabled; Reservations created outside of DHCP scope VLAN 14 defined 192.168.141.1 with DHCP enabled, Reservations created outside of DHCP scope Inter VLAN Routing enabled for all VLANs
I'm involved in setting up a new office for a business that's just starting out. I have some computer experience but not a whole lot in networking and security. We just have 3 people that will be working in the office and we need a way to store/backup/share files on the network as well as a way to access them remotely if need be. Our internet service is going to be providing us with a static IP. I was thinking that we could use an NAS with RAID 1 attached to the router, which is in turn connected to the cable modem, but I'm not sure if this is secure. Do we need some type of hardware firewall in between the cable modem and the router to protect us from the outside?
I'm currently using LMS 3.2 to monitor my network. We've recently purchsed a few of the Cisco Small Business Switches, the SF 300-24 model to be exact. They're considered 'managed switches' (tho thier CLI is terrible) and I would like to monitor them in CWLMS. My problem is that once I add it to CS, it doesn't resolve to anything, just sits there as a blue box with a question mark. I'm assuming this means that these devices are not (currently) supported by LMS 3.2 - do you know if that will change, or how I can go about managing this device with LMS 3.2?
I just took a position and never had to work with networks that much before. Our lan is very slow and trying to figure out why. We have verizon business class 3 t1 lines dedicated 4 M. When I do a speed test we get about 4.05 average and 4.23 down. We have 11 computers on the network connected to a Dell power connect 2716. We have Two network printers and that is it. We are having problems with it being very slow when connecting to a share on the server or using RDP.
I work for a small business of five computers. We have a wireless network for internet traffic, and a wired network for file sharing. The wireless network works great for using the internet, but we are having trouble with the wired network.The issue is being able to communicate with all of the computers on the wired network. The ability to speak with all of the computers on the network is hit or miss. Generally, computer A can speak with computer B, C, and D, but D can only speak with A.
He currently has 1 server, and 11 workstations, he also has a network switch that we will be replacing.We have picked out a Dell server, running Windows Server 2008 R2 that will be used as the main file server, as well as the domain controller. Where I seem to be confused is on setting up the networking component, particularly how the machines will get IP addresses. As mentioned, I will be purchasing a new Ethernet switch, in order to get the fastest LAN speed possible; I have selected the Dell PowerConnect 2816, which is a 10/100/1000Mbs switch. My question is, will I be letting the switch handle the IP's/DHCP or would I be better off, setting up the server for DHCP? If so, do I also setup the server as the DNS server? From what I am reading online using the server as the DHCP/DNS server gives us more management capabilities and is more "secure". As a test, I loaded Windows Server 2008 R2 on a home machine and played around with this. I got a bit lost on the DHCP and DNS setup and it appears that one needs a Static IP from your ISP in order to setup your serve as the DHCP/DNS server for the domain. Is this correct? I haven't been to his office yet to check out all the existing equipment, is it safe to assume that his ISP provides a router or whatever is needed to feed the switch?
I am looking to start a proposal for the smallish business I work for. We have about 65 devices on the network with ~ 12 being VOIP phones. Currently our network consists of 2 cisco 2950's and a bunch of daisy chained consumer 5 port switches. I would like to get a couple of 48 port 2960S or 3XXX series catalysis' and run drops to all the devices. It's an older brick building with beamed 15 foot ceilings. It has a couple of semi-enclosed office spaces, with one large space for all the developers and designers. The plan I have involves running a cable tray down the length of the office and run drops off of the main run. I would like to be as cheap as possible with the cable tray, but it seems like all the trays I have seen are about ~50-100 dollars per 10' (not including mounting hardware). Seems extremely expensive for basically wire baskets.
I need an example of a insecure network configuration that is may occur in small-business.For example insecure devices that can be used or how they are connected with each other. Also router/nas/pc configurations. With wireless network it is easy, but i am not familiar with wired networks. Specially I need weak points of a router configurations and weakly designed connections between different devices.I need to design a insecure small-business network configuration for my school project. For example 2 workstations, 1 laptop, NAS, network printer, VoIP telephone etc. After that I need to analyse these weak points.
I have a small business with 1 "server PC", 7 PC's & 2 Mac's (and a WiFi TV)Oh and a copier.the server reaches the internet from the wall socket through the copier through a router through a WAP finally to Server. All wired PCs can see the server and interact with it and the copier. All wireless devices (through WAP) cannot access the server computer or the copier. There is no inexpensive way to get a wire to the devices with out causing a tripping hazard or lots of unsightly strung wires. Why are the wireless connections not seeing the server and can I fix that by reconfiguring the setup of my existing devices?
We recently deployed SG300-28 to replace an old 3Com switch.The setup: RVS400 router and all workstations and server are plugged into the SG300 switch.The problem: Windows 7 workstations are unable to obtain IP addresses from the server which is also plugged into the switch.If however, we plug in the worstations into the 4 port switch on the back of the RVS4000 (the router), they get IPs from the server no problem. This worked just fine with the old 3Com switch.
I have recently purchased a Cisco 887w router for my small business to replace our Netgear DGN-3500. We have made the change to allow greater access to our internal IT infrastructure from remote locations. For the most part I have been able to work through the configuration but I have reached a point now where I can go no further. The WLAN, LAN and WAN all seem to be working well together as a basic setup but I cannot get any port forwarding/NAT to work.
So far I have attempted to configure two NATd services, both with the same result. I am trying to direct port 80 through to our web server, and port 444 to our VPN server. Both seem to undergo translation ok (if i am reading ip nat trans output correctly) but then the packets disappear. The VPN client annouces that the connection timed out, and the browser goes nowhere. Also, if i use an online port check it tells me that 80 and 444 are closed, with no packets returned.
I have spent a few days with no progress. The output of the log (attached txt file) might be meaningfull to somone with a stronger background with Cisco routers... I have also included the config and some other output that might be useful.
Does this sound about right?after initial use the setup will be changed to place switches 3 and 4 in a factory at which time we will then use the GBIC connectors and fibre to connect SW2 to SW3 and then SW4 back to SW1.
The "Cisco Small Business 300 Series Managed Switches Administration Guide" and the data sheet indicate that this switch can do accounting requests with a Radius server. On the SF300 switch interface/CLI, there is only the authentication port, the accounting port can not be set (and nothing is sent by the switch to the default port). I suppose that the SF300-08 does not handle accounting. Maybe I have to change for another model.
I'm looking for a good yet inexpensive firewall for a small business (12 people in the office, and 12 others who are out and about all day). I also would to monitor internet traffic too. Currently using FortiGate50B, and it expires in 90 or so days,
I'm trying to establish a VPN tunnel between our main office running a Cisco ASA 5505 [8.3(2)] and a remote user using a Cisco Small Business WRVS4400N firmware version V220.127.116.11.
The Cisco ASA 5505 is already configured to allow incoming IPSec VPN connections via the Cisco VPN Client.
Is this possible, and if so, how would I go about doing so? The remote user has a static IP address as well as the main office.
