Excerpt: 5 stars is for anything that is easy to set up when it comes to routers and modems. I read some bad reviews but I had no issues. I am not using it for VPN at this time though. But for a router to feed some computers and a couple of switches, no problems there.
Excerpt: I received great and quick service from B&H. I purchased this router to learn about network features and configuration. The router has quite a few advanced features but still supports web-page style interface as opposed to command line interface. I have not gotten around to the advanced features, but the install into my existing network was clean and simple. Most importantly it worked out of the box. This fits my purposes quite well.
Excerpt: I purchased this to balance two internet-connections to a small office to ensure business continuity. It does perform this function, however, it is perhaps not intended to handle quite as much stress as even a small business will apply to it, as its reliability is not 100%. We somewhat often partially lose connectivity, with some of the computers down and some of them up.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible, Small
Excerpt: This router has a simple management UI which makes it very easy to set up. The VPN configuration is the simplest one I've seen in all of the business-class routers I've used - just one page, and you can see the entire VPN definition. This is the simplest implementation, and I prefer this approach best. The router's claimed NAT throughput speed is 800mbps, but reality is very different. On a 150mbps connection, I get a maximum throughput of about 132mbps.
Excerpt: Initially had problem with setting up my VPN tunnels. They would work for 30-60 mins and then the router would freeze up. It showed connected on my end, but on the remote locations the connection was dropped. After some tweaking and firmware update, seems to work much better now. Knock on wood. It's been up and running for over a week - no issues.
