Good product - but this is the older model!

H. Isenberg, Amazon
31 March 2011
  • Summary: When I bought this product three months ago, I did not realize it was limited in it's throughput. I have a cable modem that runs at 25Mbps, but this unit is limited to 5Mbps. This information was not clear in the product write up.

BEWARE - Used to love it until I got a faster internet connection

Jeff, Amazon
23 July 2008
  • Summary: I have had this for years (the v3), it has run solid as a rock. Setting up static IP routes for Network storage and network printers is a breeze, I used reserved IPs for almost everything on my network and this handles everything you can throw at it.

Not compatable with cisco VPN

Dennis J. Mckay, Amazon
15 September 2007
  • Summary: Unfortunately I had to return because I use the Cisco VPN at work and needed this to be compatible. It was very easy to set up but I had to uninstall the VPN client when I need to run my Cisco VPN client and then reeninstall the Netgear VPN client when I want to run it.

Advanced VPN router, but difficult to setup

Overstock
26 November 2006
  • Summary: I've used a number of routers from the FVS series. All of them are easy to setup for basic firewall/router use, but are always very difficult to configure for client VPN connections. The documentation is not clear, but the product is solid.

Almost a good piece of kit

Paul James Miller "Paul James Miller", Amazon
20 October 2008
  • Summary: For the average wired office or home network this is a good piece of kit. It works well with almost all of the devices on my network. My ISP does DHCP if the device connected to the cable modem has the right MAC address. Fortunately you can set the MAC address of the FSV318.
