I am looking for some help with the Cisco RV016 MultiWAN router.
I have it connected in a small business setting with about 70-80 devices. Network is:
2 x DSL Modems....RV016 Router...Cisco 300 Series Switch - >3 more cisco switches connected...AP's
Running a 192.168.0.0 network.
The web interface is down half the time. The router needs to be reset in order for me to access it again. Usually the login page appears but when I try to login the page does not leave the login area, only a small spinning icon beside the login area.
Sometimes the page for DHCP status cannot be accessed and a reset is all I can do to access the router again.
Internet seems a little slow at times too.
We were running the Netgear FVS336G before this and I wanted to move to the RV016 and have capability of more than two WAN's, plus have everything Cisco of course.
Have you tried to use a different browser, like Firefox or IE? This might help to resolve the viewing page issue. If this does not, that I would like to recommend to reflash the f/w on the router and reset it to factory defaults (hold reset for 40 sec) and reconfigure it manually. Here is the link to the f/w:
I have this same problem with three different RV016 routers. It does not matter what browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, IE, etc) or what platform (Windows, OSX, Linux, etc). After one or two logins the web interface always becomes unresponsive. This is a well known problem with these routers in the network circles I am in, and most people I know that used to use them have switched to other brands since cisco has refused to address the issue for years, across multiple versions of this router.
I did find a while back that if you are using DSL modems, WAN port 1 should not be used for DSL. All other ports will work for DSL Internet connections. This has been working for me for well over a year now. Works well.
