Cisco RV 120W with IPv6 review

Until recently, Cisco typically only marketed small business routers under its Linksys brand name. At the beginning of 2010, Cisco started to change its entry level focus with a new lineup of 100-series wired and wireless routers. The Cisco RV 120W is part of that new Cisco focus and isn’t simply a rebranded Linksys device.

With the RV 120W, Cisco is bringing configuration control and some advanced features that aren’t usually seen in routers found at this price point.

The networking capabilities of the RV 120W provide for both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity. As IPv4 address space is becoming a scarce commodity, having IPv6 capabilities is likely a route that will becoming increasingly common over the next several years. With the RV 120W, Cisco is providing a really nice entry point to IPv6 connectivity, while still providing mechanisms for IPv4 content access.
