Stable but slow

ABitofPC, Amazon

  • Summary: Rock solid router for business. Just wish it was a little faster. BEWARE - if you have C0mcast or similar service with download speeds of 30MB or more, this will not work for you. This is from Netgear's own product specifications: "LAN-to-WAN Throughput: 25 Mbps". If you are happy with the lower speed, it is one hell of a reliable router.

  • Summary: Nice firewall but thru-put is only 22 mbps the lowest of all netgear products. the interface is nice and well rounded but lan setup in bare bones no mac filter or dhcp reservation. good for business applications.

Works as advertised but not as fast as I would have expected

Mimosa Consulting "Don Bauer", Amazon
6 June 2013
  • Summary: I have had Netgear routers for many years and always found them very reliable. I recently installed 50Mbps fiber into my home and wanted to upgrade to Gigabit. Direct connection to cable gets me 57.06Mbps while going through the router I get 16.14 average speed. I suppose if one can afford a $1,500 mega router you can go faster, but this is fine for my home and plenty fast. I have had no issues, but I did upgrade to the latest firmware. Price/performance I'm pleased.

Nicely made but too slow.

  • Summary: On reviewing the sales blurb on this item I did not see anywhere mentioned, that it has a maximum throughput of only 20Mb/s. Maybe ok for Australia, but a bottle neck for Japan. Other than that, it is a pretty well featured router/firewall. The DMZ aspect is quite nice, though setting up an FPT server behind it was a bit of a hassle in terms of getting things to work.

Almost a good piece of kit

Paul James Miller "Paul James Miller", Amazon

  • 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. Where it falls down is the DMZ.

Netgear FVS318G ProSafe 8-Port Gigabit VPN Firewall

Ghaf, bewertungen.cyberport.de
7 August 2011
  • Summary: Ich habe diesen Router seit über einem Jahr im Einsatz. Gute Verbindungsgeschwindigkeit, sehr weitreichende Einstellmöglichkeiten für die Sicherheit, VPN pass-through... Fein. ABER: Alle 24h resettet sich der WAN-Port. Mit allen bisher probierten Firmwares. Das Dumme daran: der Router braucht bestenfalls zwei Minuten, bis er das (Versatel-, aber auch andere probiert) Modem wieder findet. Manchmal hat er gar keine Lust mehr und schreit selbst nach einem BEWAG-Reset.

Acceptabel

stefanskarp, Prisjakt
24 March 2010
  • Summary: Alla funktioner i denna router är bra. Jag får också en acceptabel throughput i bandbredd. Det dåliga betyget ger jag då den hänger sig i snitt en gång varannat dygn och då måste den startas om genom att bryta strömmen. Jag har haft den i 3 månader nu. Jag har kört alla firmware-uppdateringar som kommit under perioden, men utan att problemet försvunnit. Förhoppningsvis kommer en uppdatering som löser problemet...
