This is a decent little device that is, as the saying goes, a jack of all trades, master of none.

Berknip, Amazon
28 July 2015
  • Summary: Summary: I had my share of issues with this VPN/Firewall/Switch, but in the end it's a serviceable little device that attempts to work as a prosumer device with some professional features and a marginal consumer interface.

Meh. Be prepared if you're going to try to VPN with this.

Erik B. Halverson, Amazon
20 July 2015
  • Summary: It does the basic stuff fine (routing, DHCP, DNS). Good SNMP for my monitoring system. The interface is a little dated. The VPN setup procedure is amateurish (I finally gave up, and I'm an ex-network engineer). The VPN client is laughably bad (I'd be embarrassed if I were Netgear).

inexpensive redundant internet

Tech Support, B&H Photo
28 June 2015
  • Excerpt: Very good performance, a little tricky to configure, and does not show active internet connection on second WAN until first WAN fails and fail over activates second WAN. Great performance for it's price.
  • Pros: Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up

Doesn't support Hi Speed Internet.

HamadaH "MH", Amazon
26 June 2015
  • Summary: Good for lite use. It doesn't support High Speed Internet, it supported up to 33 MB. I have 100/100 and it didn't work. It doesn't save the setting (configurations) when you upgrade your firmware. The VPN tunnels not stable.

Don't waste a week of your life trying to get this to work!

K. V. MILLER, Amazon
6 June 2015
  • Summary: Was upgrading from the FVS318 to the FVS336G to get better network performance as well as take advantage of my upgraded speed from my ISP provider (FVS318 is limited to just 11.85 Mbps, and is just plain old now).

Hope yours works.

GKL, Amazon

  • Summary: Would never get out of "test" initialization mode. Would not respond to any DHCP client on a LAN port - even after factory reset. Returned.

Outdated, slow router with bad interface and major speed constraints

Christopher Beaugrand, Amazon
25 May 2015
  • Summary: This is a very old product that should no longer be for sale. The WAN to LAN speed tops out around 40 mbps, which is far less than a typical cable modem can provide. If you are looking at dual DSL connections, then this could do the trick for you, but if either of your connections is more than 20...

Works as it should

FireFerum, Amazon
19 May 2015
  • Summary: Everything (almost) works as it should. Compared to the Cisco RV320, this is by far superior. VoIP, NAT, Firewall, VLANs, etc. Just works. Has been running for a month straight and not a single issue. The "almost" deals with multiple IP WAN.

AWFUL product and non-existent support.

Pc Pete "PC Pete", Amazon
11 May 2015
  • Summary: This Router is designed to balance the load and routes between two separate WAN IP addresses, so this can't be considered a "feature." It's an essential function to this box. Yet, when this functionality is enabled, other LAN security features, such as IP blocking, MAC filtering, static routing,...
