RVS4000 router reliability


I have recently acquired a Cisco RVS 4000 router which was intended to serve my private network, but sice I installed i noticed some issues in the sense that after some time of use (can also be depended to higher traffic on internet) it becomes unresponsive (no more trafic in the network possibe).

When this happen the only possibility to make it working again is reset the power.

Now after i wrote my issue I think I have to describe what has been done here.

Before RVS4000 i had installed a WRT110 router as a gateway and wireless.

Now i configured RVS4000 as DHCP server and as my pppoe gateway. The DHCP server on WRT 110 was disabled (I want to use it as a access point) and set a static ip which is also included in RVS 4000 reservations with the MAC address.

I did all theese to make RVS 4000 to handle the IP's inside the cable network and also to the wireless network.

I tryed what I believed it helps: disable IPS, set the router DHCP to allocate IP's only after the both routers IP's.

I also tryed to reflash the router with the same firmware, but still, after one night of continuous traffic it hangs....

Please give me an advice what should I do next! Thank you in advance!

Re: RVS4000 router reliability

Yes! most of the times! But if this can be the cause what should I do?

The other router I have doesn't hang in the same use...

I am really impressed and angry at the same time .... nobody uses this device the same as I use? The problem is that I have already bought this and now I find myself investing more than 120 $ in an useles thing.... i really hate it I think it will be the last thing I buy from CISCO.

This is the support I get ?  I understand that the product is almost at the end of production but I got it only 3 weeks ago. What will happen with the other people that buy this?

Hi Cristian,

If you purchased this unit 3 weeks ago from a Cisco Partner, please call the SBSC (Small Business Support Center) for warranty support.
