The RV042 4-port Fast Ethernet VPN Router-Dual WAN is an advanced Internet-sharing network solution for your small business needs.

But the unique dual Internet ports on the 10/100 4-Port VPN Router let you connect a second Internet line as a backup to insure that you're never disconnected.

I have found this router to be one of the best routers, for the price, for companies that need to connect one or more remote locations back to a central office or headquarters. The router can utilize 2 DSL circuits to maximize the bandwidth potential. This router combines the Linksys ease of use WEB interface along with CISCO''s reliability and security.
Content filtering is done via subscription. Power supply seems "cheap" but does work well.
Great router, especially when used in pairs or multiples to achieve low cost VPN circuits.
