Mak,

I doubt if the 1841s can use those rack mounts from the fixed config 1800s. 1841 spec sheet says its wall mountable but not rack mountable.

I have been very disappointed about the inability to rack mount the 1841. I think it is a very nice addition to the product line but I have deployed it in several situations where we would like to have rack mounted it. The only solution I have found is to install a shelf in the rack and put the 1841 on the shelf.

I keep hoping that Cisco will introduce a variation on the 1841 that is rack mountable, but so far no sign of it.

Re: Rack mount for 1841?

I 100% agree with Rick. In my personal opinion, I feel that the physical design of ISR series in general is bad.

a. 1841s are not rackmountable. (while 1760s are)

b. RPS connector is on the front. Makes it difficult for cable management.

c. Power connector is on the front.

Hope the next gen. routers that come out have a better layout.
