Good for Netgear to Netgear VPN or just home usage with SSL vpn remote acs
11 June 2013
Summary: Nice router with fast gigabit LAN connections. Good UI interface for admin pages. Great priced router for one that include PPTP, IPSEC, and SSL VPN. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me as it doesn't play nice with the Sonicwall at my office. If you are going Netgear to Netgear, don't hesitate to buy this. If you are connecting to other company's IPSEC VPN solutions, I would probably pass this router and try another brand.
Pros: Was very easy to set up. Interface was as intuitive as any of these devices are. Used this for a small office (25 users) and it definitely did what it was supposed to do. The improvement in throughput and latency over the previous SOHO unit was immediate and noticeable.
Cons: Made the mistake of ordering on Cyber Monday. Even though I payed the extra speedy processing and overnight delivery and it was supposed to arrive Tuesday, it did not arrive until Friday.
Pros: - Easy to set up - SSL-VPN Works seamlessly - Dual WAN Failover works as promised - Performance is fast (very fast) - plays well with windows 7 32bit and 64bit OS as well as windows XP 32bit
Cons: - does not like Internet Explorer 9 32bit but loves the 64bit version - does not work with firefox 7 - must enable permission for unsigned active x controls for SSL VPN to download the files nessesary to open the VPN Tunnel - Port forwarding works slower
Pros: We replaced one of our FVX538 (yes it has a lifetime warranty!) and saw an improvement in performance so we ended up switching all three. Ping times improved from 90ms to 20ms across the same network with EVERYTHING staying exactly the same. Needed tech support to get the configuration right. If Netgear didn't have an internal problem with configuration, I'd give it 5 stars! I'd still recommend this router anything that in this price range.
Cons: I had to get support to help me set the router up and they had trouble getting it to work correctly. Finally by chance, the tech got it working. There was some kind of problem in the unit that prevented it from working. I actually felt sorry for him since neither of us configure it out. Power cycling it might have solved the problem if we had been able to do it.
Pros: It does it all; VPN, Routing, Firewall, Port Forwarding, and more. The throughput is phenomenal. The response time is faster than the speed of light. I am running a small-medium network with around 30 wired and wireless users. Let's just put it this way: my network has never been so reliable before. I haven't even set up the second WAN!
Cons: VPN setup is very confusing. I still don't have it working yet. I am routing VPN connections through to another server.
Pros: WOW! Did I mention, WOW!!! Seriously, this might be the most amazing product I have ever purchased. I work from home, and can't afford to have my internet down. TWC was down for 2 days last week, so I ordered ATT UVerse as a second connection, and this baby to make em play well together. Unboxed this beauty, connected both modems to the WAN ports, plugged it in, and ZOOM! See Other for some speed test results and thoughts. Netflix Movies start INSTANTLY, the two bars ...
