Summary: Same as others have said before. Speedy firewall, and good lan to wan speeds but only when it works. Out of the box with the default firmware it worked ok. Upgraded the firmware and wow what a difference. Speedy and I'm finally getting the full advantage of a 60Mbs internet connection.
Summary: I bought this device over a year ago. About a month later the WAN connection stopped working. At first, the connection LED would remain on, but the status showed WAN disconnected. After a while of debugging and disconnecting and reconnecting the cable, the LED would no longer come on.
Summary: I have the older slower FVS318Gv1 (works well on firmware 3.1.1-18), an FVS318N and this FVS318Gv2; the later 2 (on firmware 4.3.2-7) work for about 5 mins after a reboot, then lock up, so are presently useless to me.
Summary: Just bought this to create a little LAN in a lab that needs basic DHCP, with access to the corporate LAN for web/email on the clients. The quick start leaflet in the box contained numerous errors including the IP address needed to access the router itself.
!!!!! Limited to only 24mbits on WAN and VPN on Mac is useless !!!!

Summary: This is not clearly marked on the packaging anywhere so take note. The WAN port will only support up to 24Mbps. You buy a gigabit router, you figure that it can at least keep up with current cable speeds. Not so with Netgear products. Not only that but it actually only does 16Mbps on the WAN port.
