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 !!!!
30 June 2014
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.
Summary: Complete junk. If only there was a setting to "remove everyone's stars". 1. The configuration of this thing is complete and utter nonsense. Take what you know about configurations, then reverse all your knowledge, then invent a stupid way to do it. Speaking specifically about their VPN connections.
Summary: Besides the fact that Netgear's support services is well below par, I wasted 2 months trying to get the VPN to function properly when I was finally informed it does not have the capability to support internet faster than 20mbps.
