Great entry level business VPN router

VPN that works, Staples
1 June 2014
  • Excerpt: The Netgear Prosafe is just what the small business (home office) needs to add wireless "N" and gigabit ethernet behind a commercial cable modem. We needed to be able to support remote access via ipsec VPN, and the SSL support is a plus. The VPN Wizard simplifies setup and the Greenbow based client is very straightforward.

  • Excerpt: Purchased this to replace an older Netgear VPN router with 2 VPN tunnels in it. Even after upgrading the firmware I could not the VPN setup to allow all the needed connections. Replaced it with a Cisco 800 series router, although its a lot more money it works.

Netgear Prosafe N300

Netgear Prosafe N300, Staples
20 May 2014
  • Excerpt: My whole office was in despair not knowing what was needed to get my office up and running. I had to get a tech person to figure out what was going on. Before he came I had called Cablevision to help with the situation. Stayed on the phone for almost 1 hour to find out that there was something not working right with the Netgear.

User Review

CalJim, Walmart
24 January 2013
  • Summary: The wired ports work fine. The wireless signal is fair and the speed is great but it disables itself at least once daily at random even though it is not set up to operate at specific hours. I didn't realize that to use the tunnel feature, I would have to pay a monthly fee. I would have bought a cheaper model had I known this and a different brand had I known it would turn itself off. It's a good 8 port wired router. That's the only good thing I can say about it.

Home and Small Office Networking

Big Ed, Staples
22 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I purchased this unit as it indicated it had a firewall as part of the software and would allow me to use this in my home office business without my neighbors piggybacking on my internet hub. I was also very anxious about setting up the wireless hub as it appeared to be very difficult. I was mistaken on both items. I attempted to set up a firewall with a secure password for this unit but was unable to locate instructions on how to make it secure.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Expanded, Easy To Set Up, Highly Compatible
  • Cons: Not Secure

Great router!

therealdgh, Staples
26 August 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a great router to have for extra capabilities. I bought it for the extra wired ports (previous one only had four) and the firewall capabilities. The GigE speed ports was bonus. So far, so good after a few months of full time use with five PCs, a network hard drive and a network printer. If you want to move up into the next level of equipment for your home, this is a good second level from standard home user equipment.
  • Pros: Efficient, Reliable
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up

Not necessary for home use

Papa, Staples
30 April 2012
  • Excerpt: I needed help as the home network was hacked. Salesman talked me into this equipment. I bit the hook and wasted my money. If you need one you can have it for half price. It is not a piece of equipment you need for home use.
  • Pros: Can't think of one
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Hard To Use
