out of time

  • Summary: I bought one of these from Frys in 2005, tried to use it, was never able to get it to run and can't get it to run to this day. Specs are feature packed and price was very competitive at the time.

This is a Switch Not a Router

justmeinputting, Amazon
9 November 2014
  • Summary: Important: This is a Switch Not a Router. You can place this behind a router and it will pass the DHCP protocol to your computer(s). Or you will have to set individual IP address to each computer.

If your internet is over 10Mb don't bother.

19 October 2013
  • Summary: The WAN (or internet) port tops out at 11Mb and averages less than that. No new firmware for 3 years so Im guessing its not going to change.

NetGear stuff works great!

Lance Drake, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: Having bought a bunch of network gear from various manufacturers over the years, my report is that the units I have purchased from NetGear have worked well and provided excellent service. This is my second FVS318 - the first one instill in service on behalf of somebody else.

reread the data spec sheet very very carefully

sue, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: It has 8 ports, okay. But only 5 users can really access stuff across the VPN. In fact as it turns out it will so severely limit your access speed that it's not worth any savings you may obtain.
