    Cisco RV340 & RV345 – are the licensed “advanced security features” worth it?

    On advice from another thread I’m posting this question here in wired routers. Cisco RV340/345 routers have optional annual licensing features, one of the two optional licenses is for “advanced security features” ... IPS, Antivirus, Web Security, App ID, and Client ID." The second license is...

    Cisco RV-345P Dual WAN Gigabit PoE VPN Router Reviewed

    Had been watching for an RV345 to go on sale and finally got one. I like the extra 12 onboard ports the 345 offers over the 340 models. I'm wondering if anyone finds it useful to get an annual license? For the record, because I know it's been asked in other articles on here, this is what the...

    Cisco RV-345P Dual WAN Gigabit PoE VPN Router Reviewed

    That's an interesting find, and it's easy to overlook, thanks for pointing it out. The idea of having that many more cpu cycles is compelling. However excluding the wireless part of the RV340W I don't see any difference in the throughput specs. All have the same spi firewall throughput...

    Automating a home water main shutoff valve

    In looking at the website, no, not even close to what I'm talking about/asking about here.

    I see there is updated firmware listed for the RV340/345 models, showing 02 Sep, ver 1.0.3.19. However no release notes, links to release point to a list of older versions. Edit: To see the release notes, change "1_0_3_18" to "1_0_3_19" in a URL...

    Wired Access Point recommendation

    Fully agree on the EAP225. I bought one based on the discussions here. For $58 it's a bargain and has exceeded expectations.

    Automating a home water main shutoff valve

    Thinking forward on the option of flashing smart switches, what happens when one sells their home? You obviously do not want to leave a unique, niche home automation system for the next owner. Can the devices be flashed back to their OEM states? I can see a home with smart switches and...

    Automating a home water main shutoff valve

    This is the kind of feedback I wanted to get. As for buying and then flashing some Lutron hardware, for my case when just jumping into this for the first time I'm not sure that is what I want to do. I will read up more on it before final decision.

    Automating a home water main shutoff valve

    No I do not have a Z-Wave controller. I posted to get the design ideas hashed out. For my second priority I'm thinking of a few Lutron Caseta light switches. As far as I can tell a Lutron Smart Bridge cannot connect to a Z-Wave controller for the valve I linked to.

    Dual WAN routers, DNS servers, failover

    Yes that does help, thanks. For question #2 I'm looking for that function to be in the router, for example a cisco rv345. In hindsight yes agree it is a niche use case.

    Dual WAN routers, DNS servers, failover

    Generic questions for all dual WAN routers: 1-When you have a dual WAN situation configured, and both WANs are configured for 'use DNS from ISP', and each WAN ISP gives the router two DNS servers, which DNS servers do the LAN network clients get from the router and how do the clients determine...

    Does the NetGear FVS318G router plan nice with Windows 7 Native VPN client?

    As a rule of thumb, is that how you determine if any VPN Router will work with the Windows 7 VPN client? All I ever read on the FVS318 was use the NetGear client, no clear explanation why.
