out of time

pi2r, Amazon
8 December 2014
  • 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.

Useless for any Modern ISP

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Max Wan to LAN speed is around 6 megs and upstream is around 500K. Useless for any modern ISP. Support was impossible to get to. Ended up contacting presales for info.

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

  • 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.

7 Meg MAX. SLOW and obsolete.

RoboTech, Amazon
18 October 2012
  • Summary: This was a decent unit when it was new. I used one for years but when Comcast got above 7 meg (now 22) this could not perform above 7. Don't buy if you have more than 7 meg as this will be the weak link in your chain.

**Very Disappointed**

Johan A Rojer, Amazon
30 March 2011
  • Summary: I recently bought this firewall based on the info i got from Amazon's website. (FVS318v3) People if your current bandwidth exceeds 7Mbs please do not buy this product. This firewall's CPU cannot handle anything faster then 7Mbs!!!!

Absolute garbage - zero stars

P. Salanova, Amazon
19 December 2009
  • Summary: I have version 3 of this router, it is horrendously slow: downloading from the internet on my linksys router goes at about 1.2 Mb/s, with this one, it's more like 200 kb/s. Transferring files from computer to computer goes at 1 Mb/s - slower than downloading from the internet with my other router!

Terrible! Terrible!

MNR, Amazon
8 December 2009
  • Summary: This thing will slow down your connection speed, browsing speed, everything. The processor is to slow. Not even worth the $89. Don't waste your money. I have purchased and used MANY routers/firewalls. This has to be the worst on thus far.

This is NOT a VPN router!

Amazon
13 November 2009
  • Summary: First I'll state for the price the fvs318 appears to be an excellent value, however the devil is in the details. I guess you could say: "You get what you pay for...maybe not even that".

Netgear FVS318v3

CompuTS, Amazon
2 November 2009
  • Summary: The Netgear FVS318v3 may seem like a great option for users with the need for many ports, but beware! The FVS318v3 loses connectivity TOO OFTEN. Every few minutes, it seems like, I must reset the router (switch off, switch on) to get it working again.
