Summary: A very good and reliable firewall for small business and home users who need more options than are available in a normal router designed for home use. Only problem I discovered was if the WAN cable is disconnected and reconnected within 1-5 minutes the router becomes unresponsive and does not...

Summary: Happy so far. This one allows up to 250 mbps throughput. I had the version just below this which capped out at 25 mbps and my inbound service speed from my ISP is over 50 and this one allows me up to 60 mbps wired via wall jacks as well as wireless through my separate wireless router.
Summary: I received this product free as part of a Friends & Family Program SETUP: Setup was fairly straightforward, I had it connected and running in about 15-20 minutes. It has all the features you would expect. WAN and LAN configuration were straightforward.
Great for SMB - expanded features for incredible price point.

Summary: Out of the box, the NETGEAR ProSAFE 8 port Gigabit VPN Firewall (FVS318G-200NAS) is a solid component. Physically, its metal housing provides a welcome change over the plastic that is usually found at this price point.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Linksys wireless router (added a NETGEAR access point as well), which locked up several times a day and required a reboot to get going again. I've had this issue with most Linksys routers I've used over the years and I was tired of putting up with it.
Summary: We received Netgear's FVS318g V2 VPN Firewall as part of their Friends & Family Program. Not knowing what to expect (in terms of set - up & configuration) I must say that I was pleasantly surprised! This thing is easy to set up with directions that anyone can follow with a degree in Geek.
