Not so Reliable

PeleKoolaid, Amazon
26 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product in 2009 and it has work OK for the must. I have noticed that the internet speed slows down when connected via the router versus connecting directly via the cable modem. The VPN functionality is not so good and do not contact Linksys customer support ...

Hardware VPN endpoint

Chad Everett, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: Not too much more expensive than a regular router, this device works in conjunction with another VPN endpoint (for instance another of the same model) to establish a secure VPN, making it a snap to create secure tunnels between two remote locations.

Great functionality, poor reliability

GG "GG", Amazon
7 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased the BEFSX41 to replace another I had at a client remote office, creating a VPN back to the home office with a BEFVP41. In my 8+ years of using the BEFSX41, carefully deployed with surge protection and in climate-controlled environments, I have found that they are not reliable.

Do not buy this router

G. Wallace, Amazon
14 September 2010
  • Summary: We use these routers to connect two offices using the VPN feature. We have used Linksys products since 2004 and were very happy until recently. In the last 2 years we have gone through 4 of these routers.

Low Throughput for Broadband

Stephen C., Amazon
15 February 2010
  • Summary: The Linksys BEFSX41 is a fine router, but its maximum throughput measures only 19 Mbps and with the SPI engaged it drops to 14.01 Mbps which is just too slow for a modern high speed broadband connection. [...] ~Maxx~

Horrible

Leo, Amazon
31 July 2008
  • Summary: I got this router when out company switched to VPN for remote desktop connections to increase security. This is one of the worst routers I have ever used, and I returned it to Amazon after about a week. The longest uptime I have ever seen was about 12 hours.
