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 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.
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.
Summary: I was recently given the opportunity to take Netgear's FVS318g V2 VPN Firewall for a test drive* and I have to say that I am a happy customer. Initial Impressions: Straight out of the box it's a fairly standard affair as far as this type of hardware goes.
Summary: One advantage of not being an early adopter is that one has solid firmware (3.1.1-14) and the unit now seems stable enough. On the other hand, people report its speed is limited (~20 Mbps), but that is not a limiting issue for me. Would be nice if it ran a little cooler.
Been using Netgear for years and this works just as well as expected.

Summary: I bought this so I could start playing with remote VPNs on my home network. I was able to set up a site to site VPN tunnel between my home and Windows Azure and it worked out great. In addition, the router works fast and is easily configurable.
