Linksys Wired Router :: Getting RV042 And RV082 Throughput?
Feb 17, 2008
I am currently using Netgear FVS338 Routers / VPN Devices in 3 different locations and honestly I am not happy / impressed with them whatsoever.I have been doing some research and came across the Linksys RV042 and RV082 devices that caught my eye. The question is what is the VPN throughput of these devices?I have gone over the website, spec sheets and they only really say the throughput of the LAN Links and not the WAN Links. I currently have very reliable 20Mb+ Synchronous connections between all 3 sites and have not been able to get any good performance out of the Netgear devices and contacting their support is a joke. They can't tell you anything other than it should work or we will swap out the unit. Well if I have 3 of them that have been purchased at all different times I don't believe that they are all having the same issues. What these units 3DES VPN Throughput and will more than likely be purchasing 3 of which ever once suits our needs immediately.
We have almost identical networks in two offices, with the only difference being, one uses an RV042 and the other an RV082.The setup is: two WAG54GS ADSL modems carry PPOA ADSL connections with static IPs to the two WAN ports of the RV0XX.The WAG54GS routers are configured to DMZ all incoming traffic to the relevant WAN IP of the RV0XXs. VPN pass-through is also set on them. The RV0XX port forwarding is set to forward a selection of traffic such as, PPTP, HTTP, HTTPS, RDP, POP3, SMTP and Remote Desk to the external adapter of an SBS 2003 server which processes all operations including ISA and Exchange.Mail for Exchange arrive through both ADSL connections for redundancy. VPN connection requests from remote users to the SBS come in through both ADSL connections.The office fitted with RV042 works fine and does all the following without problems.The office fitted with RV082 has issues. Remote VPN requests comming from ADSL to WAN port 1 of the RV082 connect successfully to the SBS2003 server, but the VPN requests coming from ADSL to WAN port 2 fail to connect! Similarly, incoming mail destined for Exchange don't get through if coming from ADSL of WAN port 2.I have updated the firmware on both RV042 and RV082, but the RV082 still has the above issues.
telnet/ssh sessions time out after 30 minutes of in-activity This only happens in the case of a server that is setup behind the firewall, and of course port forwarding is used. If one unchecks the radio button for the enable firewall the sessions do not timeout at all. This is very reproducable in all recent (1.3.9) versions of RV042 and RV082 routers.
In our USA office we have a RV042 router and in Venezuela we have a RV082 router. We have connected a VPN tunnel (gateway-to-gateway) between both offices.
The point is: How could we redirect the internet traffic from our Venezuela office (RV082) to the USA Office (RV042) to navigate using USA public IP's?
The reason for this is that we need to use online streaming services which are only available for IP's from USA and we can't use them from the Venezuelan IP's.
We can not use the PPTP option since the equipment which will use the streaming services (like hulu, crackle, etc.) in Venezuela is a Google TV device which doesn't allow the configuration of proxy navegation or PPTP VPN connections itself. That's the reason why we need to do that through the routers.
I have been trying to find out what the maximum Wan to Lan thruput is for the Linksys Cisco BEFSR 41 Etherfast router.. Have both the version 3 and 4 models and want to deploy them into both 6mb and 12mb DSL networks.. From what I have found the version 1 and 2 have 10mb wan ports and the version 3 and 4 have 10/100mb ports.. There seems to be hardware upgrades as well with the CPU and memory speeds but what they are I do not know for sure.. Found someone stating that they went from a 50mhz CPU to a 166mhz CPU to a possible 220mhz CPU...
I am trying to set up a dual WAN on my RV082 - I have Verizon DSL on WAN1 and I am trying to establish Time Warner Road Runner on WAN2 as a backup in case DSL goes out on WAN1.I cannot get the router to recognize both connections at the same time. I have power cycled everything, the router is only picking up one internet signal at a time.
How can I make a device or an IP go through a certain WAN? Basically I want to make the PC I use on the network go through WAN2, I have tried everything but I am really stumped on how to do this, my Firmware Version: v4.0.2.08-tm
I am using RV082 V3 router. After a reset of the router I have access via both LAN and WAN for some period of time (not yet known) later that day or the next day when I try to access it via the WAN it sits on "opening page" for a while eventually coming up with the login box. After logining in the page only partially loads. (All the settings are shown, but the proper selections are not made.) Internet explorer will then show something like "8 items remaining" in the status bar. If I close and re-open IE I am unable to connect at all. At this point I also cannot login via the LAN. However, internet access appears to be fully function through the router and the router also responds to pings. (I have the latest firmware loaded.) The only resolve I've found is power cycling the unit to regain login access to it. Very irritating, and impossible when not at the physical location.
I am setting up One-To-One NAT to redirect traffic from the internet. We have 5 static public IP addresses, and I set up One-To-One Nat to redirect to local Win servers. One of the servers running Web server and FTP server. For some reason redirection works fine for the Web server, but does not work for FTP server when I try to access them from the internet. FTP server works locally, but my FTP client cannot connect from the Internet. I opened the ports in the firewall, and these ports show as opened when I test them from external servers. What am I missing?
Networking isn't my strongest computer subject area, but I know I'm having a performance problem with my RV082 router. When I direct connect my PC to my cable modem, I can get very near the 7mb/sec rate advertised by my ISP. When I connect the modem to this router, then connect to the pc to the router, the speed drops to between 2-3mb/sec. All tests performed several time using dslreport.com speed test website. The result is very repeatable, so I figure it has to be some delay introduced by the router. I can't see to find any place in the router configuration to do performance tuning. I'm not using any firewall rules except for the default rules. Why I'm seeing a greater than 50% decrease in internet throughput using this router?
I have a RV082 router that is currently in prod. I have a Dell Powerconnect 5424 switch that I'd like to use in place of the unmanaged switches I am currently using.I have the switch configured with it's IP, subnet, gateway, etc. I can plug devices into it and communicate with no problems. However, when I attempt to plug in the router, nothign will communicate to or from the switch. The devices I plugged in will not talk to each outer, ping the switch, or the router. Also cannot ping to the switch from a device plugged into the router. If I unplug the router, comm opens back up.
we have a RV082 and have the DMZ option enable for a range of IPs within the same sub-net of WAN IP and this works great. I have another range of Public IPs from our ISP that is not in the same sub-net of the WAN IP and do not see a way on the RV082 to include this 2nd bank of Public IPs in the DMZ.
Our ISP internet feed plugs into the RV082 WAN port and we have a switch plugged into the DMZ port of the RV082 that is used to connect the public devices in the current DMZ. Both banks of Public IPs from our ISP come over via the ISP internet feed plugged into the WAN Port.
My question is, if I cannot configure a DMZ rule to allow this 2nd range of Public IPs to "travel" to the RV082 DMZ port, how I can do this without one-to-one NAT or port port forwarding? The device I am deploying needs to be at the border of our network (like in the DMZ) and have some ability to talk to a device on our LAN.
I am trying to get our internal network PCI compliant and when I run a network scan from securitymetrics.com I receive the following message about our RV082 router.
Synopsis : The remote service supports the use of weak SSL ciphers. Description : The remote host supports the use of SSL ciphers that offer either weak encryption or no encryption at all. See also :[URL]: Reconfigure the affected application if possible to avoid use of weak ciphers. Risk Factor: Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
I have been googling many different search terms for ssl ciphers, rv082, and pci compliance but didn't see any solutions to this. Any experience with ssl ciphers and how to use more secure ciphers? I just performed a firmware upgrade to 1.3.98-tm in hopes that it would fix this issue.
I have some problem connecting to sites when I'm using the router in Load Balancing mode on the 2 WAN. Looks that when a connection to a site is started with a WAN is not manteined with this one but jump from a wan to the other, causing, in some site like Home Banking to be disconnected every time. I would like to know if it's possible to configure the roouter in Load Balancing but Bindind the source and the destination IP address so the same wan will be used for the entire time this connection is up. In opther words the Load Balancing has a sense beetween connections not beetween the same connection.
I have a Ubiquiti radio link between my DSL modem and RV082 router and although the router log states that it is connected to the static ip address of the modem i get and NSD fail and have no connection. if I plug the radio link directly into a computer with the static ip I get a connection but the modem has a problem with it.
Recently I sold a rv082 router to a client.He uses a Windows XP environment to dail in using QuickVPN.A week ago an office admin wanted to connect using Windows 7 and it does not work.The client starts do dial and connects but the connection does not work.The admin does not use a router and there is no active software firewall.
Currently I have a VPN tunnel setup between our company locations. Location A has Linksys RV016 and Location B has RV082. Everything has been working with no problems for the past 2 years with only minor disconnect issues in the VPN tunnel between the locations.
For the past 2 weeks I have been running into issues with the Tunnel. Users in Location B are reporting problems with losing connection to applications that are hosted in Location A. At first I start with doing a ping to router address in Location B and I get "request timed out". Next I login to router in Location A and under VPN I notice that the VPN tunnel is not disconnect (I see disconnect button). Once I click on Disconnect the screen refreshes and that seemed to restablish connecting with router in Location B. The drop connection has been been going on for the past 2 weeks and only happens once a day specifically between 1 PM and 3 PM EST. I have been reading all over the internet and no luck at all. The VPN tunnel settings are the same on both routers and under Advanced options both Keep Alive and Dead Peer Detection (DPD) are checked.
I have a RV082 Linksys router and at the moment it is slowing down my internet connection by a significant amount. With the router, I get about 3 Mbps and with a modem directly connected to my computer I get about 24 Mbps. Before with the router I used to get 15 Mbps, which is understandable because it is connected to 4 computers total. Maybe my setup has something to do with it. I got a cable that is connected to a modem, the modem is connected to the router, from which one port is connected to a computer, and another is used to connect to a Netgear switch, which in turn is connected to 3 more computers.
Everything was fine until I went on a trip and wasn't home for about 2 weeks, and when I came back, this happened. I tried restarting the modem, the router and all to no avail. I also tried to do a factory reset on the router and again got slow speeds.
I have got Linksys RV082 in my home network to use it as load balancer between 2 providers.Is it possible to make some customisation in scenarioses and logging system? As I understand the device is based on some Linux core and Linux infracrtucture. So it must me available in sources... How I may get this kind of access? I want to get ssh/telnet or other raw access to installed on the device OS and manual control it, treat around web-UI. How may I do it?
I have a Linksys RV082 Wired router. It works great but doesn't do wireless. I have a Cisco/Linksys E2500 Wireless router for my wireless devices to use. the RV082 is on the 192.168.1.x network. The E2500 is on the network 192.168.0.x network. The Internet cable goes to the Wired RV082, and a line comes out of there to the wireless router. This all works fine except for a couple inconveniences.I have an iPad that connects wirelessly and some of the apps offer an http:// option so I can transfer files to that app. I also have a network printer hooked in wired, but wireless devices can't see it.I have 2 problems:
1) In order to transfer files from my laptop (which I have hooked in to the wired network most of the time), I have too disconnect the wire, connect wirelessly, then I can transfer the files. Works, but it's inconvenient.
2) I would like a netbook that I have on the wireless connection to be able to print to my wired network printer.
It appears that the 2 networks are not seeing each other. Here are the things that I have tried:
1) I disabled the DHCP on the wireless router. My thought is that requests for an IP address sent to the wireless router would be forwarded along to my wired router... NOT. On my iPad and Wii, they could no longer connect wirelessly. Strangely enough, with the wire disconnected and connecting wirelessly with my laptop, I was still getting a 192.168.0.x IP address, even though DHCP was disabled on the wireless router.
2) Thinking that I would just manually put the wireless router on the 192.168.1.x network, instead of telling it to get an IP dynamicaly from the Internet connection, I manually set it's IP to 192.168.1.245. Bad mistake. I could not connect to it at all from anywhere then. The only way I could fix that was to hook it wired to my notebook, assign a static IP to my notebook on the same network as the router, then I could got to the setup page and set things back the way it was.
Another thing... Even when I'm only connected wired on my notebook and wireless is disabled, I can ping 192.168.0.1 (the wireless gateway) and it returns a value. But, when I try to go there in a browser, I get a "page not found" error.
I'm trying to setup a VPN Tunnel between RV082 and WRV200.The RV082 has an static IP, the WRV200 has a dynamic IP. I have to Dyndns.org in the WRV200.I have setup the RV082 tunel auth like: Dynamic IP + email.In the WRV200 I setup the hostname with the username, and the domain with the domain part of domain entered in the RV082.In the RV082 VPN Log I got: Initial Aggressive Mode message from 220.127.116.11 but no (wildcard) connection has been configured.It seems to be working the IPSEC setup but the RV082 does not accept the connection because of a missmatch in the Remote Security Gateway Type parameter in the RV082.
At a remote site, I fire up QUICKVPN, enter necessary data and successfully connect. Bring up Remote Desktop and put in the IP of my home pc and the logon username and, after a minute or two, it says "unable to connect to the computer" (or words to that effect). My home PC has been configured to allow remote desktop connections and this has occured in the past but not since the RV082 installation. There is nothing in the PC's logs nor in the RV082's logs.
I have RV082 in many locations and it is working fine.One location I just starting to have problem with packet lose (50 to 60 %)I ping between two location which i am having problem.Gateway to Gateway shows no lose on packet (reply with 20ms avg.)but router to router will lose packet 50 to 60 %.
I'm owner of Cisco RV082 router and I have a problem with firewall setup.I would like to deny internet access on port 80 (all sites) for group of users, and allow them internet access for one site by HTTPS (443)After applying rules internet connection is really slow.. Users have to wait something like a 30 sec for a website..I descovered that the reason for slow internet connection is DENY rule. After disbling DENY rule everything works fine..Now I have a few rules added to firewall:
Priority:1 Action: Deny Service: HTTP(80) Source interface: LAN Source:10.82.0.51-10.82.0.245 Destination: Any
DSL Internet Router (Dynamic IP) -> Linksys RV082 -> Firewall PC -> LAN
DSL Internet Router: 192.168.3.0/24 Linksys RV082 WAN2: 192.168.3.0/24 Linksys RV082 LAN: 192.168.5.0/24 Firewall (2 Nics): Nic1 is 192.168.5.0/24 and Nic2 is 192.168.1.0/24 LAN: 192.168.1.0/24
RV082 WAN 2: Configured with a DHCP IP Address from DSL Internet Router so it has 192.168.3.0/24 range IP. Load Balancing enabled Static Route added on RV082: 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.5.x interface LAN Firewall PC is completely Open as i was using it before.
I had a Fortgate 60B and everything worked fine, then a bought a RV082 and now i can get this up and running properly.The thing is this....whit the actual setup i have, computers only can navigate through HTTP web pages, other ports seem to be closed, but if the Firewall PC was blocking this i guess i'll know because it shows a message on screen when a policy is being applied. If i try to open HTTPS Pages it doesnt work, Even a simple pinng to google.com doesn't work from my LAN (192.168.1.0/24), but if i connect a computer on a local port on RV082 i can PING and i can browse anywere i want.
It seems to be that Firewall PC is causing problems but i execute a tracert to [url]...., the packet get stuck in the RV082.What im thinking is that maybe the RV082 doesn't allow to go trhu at all if the traffic comes from other networks that doesn't belong to the one configured on its LAN side.By the way the Firewall PC connected to the RV082 directly navigates perfectly.
PS. The reason im using Firewall PC is because that way is much easier and flexible to handle policies for Internal users than in the RV082 Router. I use this ume basically to set up VPN IPSEC and Dual WAN Load Balancing.
I would like to the the RV042 for a one to one NAT, but I need it to NAT to an address that is not on it's local subnet. I have it routing properly to the address, but web interface only allows adding an IP on the local subnet. Is there a way around that?
We have 3 Cisco RV042. These were purchased to permit VPN from two branch offices to our head office. VPN is required to permit the two branch offices to use Avaya IP phones to connect to our main head office switchboard.We also have users on Blackberry and Apple iPhones to collect their mail through OWA from our Exchange 2010 server.
I've noticed in one of your threads that the RV042 routers configured for VPN do not permit the use of HTTPS to connect to OWA and that seems to be the problem for us. Since installing the VPN our OWA access is not possible.
What can I do to resolve this problem and what router would you suggest that I could use at the head office to enable the two branches to connect VPN to head office? And if there is a suitable router, would I need to replace all three?
