Cisco RVS-4000

I have a bunch of locations using Cisco's RVS-4000 most of them with firmware on it.

Knowing that this router is now discontinued and replaced by the Cisco RV-180 which I dislike and also that the DHS National Cyber Security Division release a bulletin stating "The Cisco WAP4410N access point with firmware through, WRVS4400N router with firmware 1.x through 1.1.13 and 2.x through, and RVS4000 router with firmware through allow remote attackers to read credential and configuration data, and execute arbitrary commands, via requests to the test interface on TCP port 32764, aka Bug IDs CSCum37566, CSCum43693, CSCum43700, and CSCum43685."

Can anybody recommend a better router to replace the RVS400 ?

Thanks in advance;

I use a Cisco RV220w in my home office. It is a good wireless router, fast internally, supports N cards reliably and is easy to use.

It is the successor to the RV180 but it is a good successor.

Thank you for the clarification.

In my home office network, I use a Cisco RV042G router as my main wired router. My Cisco RV220W is attached to the RV042G.

The RV042G is a fast, gigabit VPN router that is easily secured and great for site-to-site tunnels if you need that. Even without tunnels it is a nice, fast and stable router. It is easy to manage (in my opinion). It is certainly worth a look.

Can you tell me what make you pick this router, what you see in this router that you couldn't find in any other, why u just stay with the Cisco RV220W doesn't cover both?

The Cisco RV042G is a strong, fast, reliable VPN router and the cost is reasonable.  

I always keep a separate wireless router so as not to have all functions in one box.
