Cisco RV180W or Cisco RV220W



I have a question, we would like to purchase a Cisco RV180W or a Cisco 220W.

We have read on the Internet that the 180W is updated to also use the 5 GHz frequency. We would like to know if this is true.

I know that on the 220W both are available but not in the same time.

We need a device that has simultanaous Wifi 2.5 and 5 ghz together at the same time.


Why the 180 or 220, well we need the 1GB connections, verry fast VPN site to site Ipsec troughput and off course both frequencies.


Can someone please give us some advise.


Many thx.
