Hi,

I am looking at a Cisco SRP527W-U and I want to know what network classes it supports. I cannot find this information anywhere on the Cisco site. I need it to support a class B network. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. 


Cheers
Blake

Are you talking about a /16 internal IPv4 network (NATed to the outside world)?

Just a heads up, they are junk.

They aren't Cisco routers at all. They are Linksys, I've had 3. All returned. They have trouble delivering video over Wifi, and either overheat, or turn themselves off. They have no IOS support at all, it's all Linksys GUI based. They look feature rich, but aren't. They also have a very limited memory/CPU overhead. Which is why they crash.

They have been discontinued recently from Cisco which is another negative imo. I'd get something for 1/3 the price. $100 TPLink, Netgear, Dlink or even Thompson routers are a lot better.

Even cheap routers should support "Class B"(in quotes due to classes not being relevant). Basically just turn off DHCP, then set the IP, and subnet manually. As long as you don't have more than say 256 hosts on that network, then most of the cheap routers should be fine.

What are you using it for? If it's a medium sized business, I wouldn't even be looking at the consumer model linksys routers(521/527 series). You should really get the full Cisco IOS series, maybe the 800 series or higher

I'd be guessing he would be?  Unless his company has a Class B address, in which he shouldn't even be looking at consumer grade Linksys gear :)

Assuming so, I think you're out of luck. Looks to be Class C max only.
