Please assist a beginner, to all experience cisco costumers

Hi everbody, I come from a gaming community and I was looking for a good router which can handle alot of queries and a upload speed of at least 200mbits per second throughout the internet.

So i was going to buy this router cisco RV092

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps9926/index.html

But i notice it had lots of limits, like 100mbits transfer rate which i really dislikes. BUT it is using linksys which for me is a very easy program to use to configurate your router. all from qos to mac addresses.

I found a router which i really want which is cisco 892 http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps10203/index.html , I really want this router but I have one big problem. Its not using linksys, it doesnt use anything. So you have to manually install cisco "Cisco Configuration Professional" and I think that is so complicated and impossible to understand.

Can someone please give me some guidance?

You could consider RV042G, which is a gigabit version of RV042.

Thanks for answer. But how is the the rest? When it comes to edit settings. Does it use linksys, or does it use cisco own CCP?
Because i want an regular interface where you can just login to http://192.1.1.1 for example

RV042G shares the same firmware as RV082 v3.

(All Small Business RV series routers use web browsers for administrative tasks.)

I've been looking into it now, and I really want something stronger
Want something that will last for years. I found other routhers from companies like cisco linksys EA4500 , it uses 1.2ghz processor and 126 ram , that is good compared to the rv042g one. 

I want a router with qos and web-based very easy modification , a processor with decent ram that can handle alot of querues

If you need features such as Dual WAN load balance, DMZ port, 1-to-1 NAT, access rules, and VPN, you can find these in Small Business routers, but not in consumer routers such as EA4500.

Here you can find reviews of RV0xx products.

Re: Please assist a beginner, to all experience cisco costumers

I looked in the RV082 the high-end consumer choise, it only has 100mbits of transferrate to wan (internet) . I need at least 200mbits. because Im using fiber optic 100/100mbits.
rv082 is using a Cavium CN5020 @ 300 MHz, but the EA4500 has a 1.2 GHz Marvell Processor .
And the EA4500 has a transfer speed of 300mbits to wan.
So thats why im so confused why cisco which is expansive has lower in performance ? Please explain. thx for your assisten.

Re: Please assist a beginner, to all experience cisco costumers

RV042G can support up to 800 Mbps NAT/firewall throughput in labs testing, even though its CPU is clocked at 300MHz with its rich set of hardware acceleration modules inside the CN5010 chip. Besides, the firmware of RV0xx has been optimized to deliver impressive performance with a very reasonable price tag.
