I have a small engineering office with about 20 various and changing devices. Each time I make a change of ISP, the modem changes and they want me to use their internal router and wireless, regardless if good or not.
I am thinking about buying the RV042 and always use its router and then force the cable or DSL modems into a bridge mode and hopefully a modem change would not affect the rest of the system.
Similarly I like to turn off the router function in the wireless routers and just use the wireless function. That hopeful will allow me to easily switch and test different wireless equipment without having to reconfigure the network system.
Is the RV042 the correct choice for this application?
What difference is there between buying Linksys branded vs. Cisco?
