Summary: I have always bought Linksey routers,they have been tried and true through the years.They also let you connect more than one computer at the same time where Netgear you could only use one at a time. I have tried others like Netgear but have always went back to my Linksey.And will ALWAYS buy this brand!!
Summary: I like because it got VPN...also it very simple to install..it was used but work's any way good one..that model on market since 2001 or 2002 but still useful...who need not wireless network it good router ....best regards..
Summary: I use this to hook my desktop and my Tivo unit into my broadband. Set up was easy and two months later I haven't needed to tweak it at all. Ideal for anyone who doesn't need wireless access. I especially like the way it's made transfers to and from my Tivo no-hassle.
Summary: This was an easy to setup product and it is doing what it is supposed to do. Two things that are hard to come by in computer accessories. This was also a very economical way to add firewall services, a full featured switch and router to a home network. A software fire wall costs $24.95+ every year to maintain it, a switch alone can cost almost as much and so can a router. This is a great value product!
Summary: This router has a well-documented problem regarding disconnects from AIM. It randomly disconnects and reconnects the AIM session which is very annoying. Otherwise, it appears to be a standard Linksys router with VPN capabilities. I bought it for my office and would return it if I wasn't too far out on my purchase date.
Works great as an IPSEC vpn endpoint for split tunnels

Summary: I use two of these devices at remote offices to set up a site-to-site vpn. The main office has a Linksys RV082. Despite what Linksys will tell you, the BEFSX41 WILL do split tunneling. (split tunneling means that internet traffic goes through the BEFSX41 straight to the internet, while inter-office traffic goes through the VPN tunnel to the main office)
