Summary: It did exactly what it said. It was easy to setup. It replaced the Verizon router easily. Wireless, firewall rules, services and users were setup in a snap. I would definetly recommend this to anyone looking to setup a small network with secure remote access.
Summary: Purchased this device to upgrade my existing Linksys Router. Plugged it in and configured it. Everything worked fine except for my Wireless media system which kept stuttering. Confirmed that the units worked correctly with wired connections. Removed the NetGear unit and re-installed the Linksys unit, everything worked great again. Upgraded Firmware in NetGear unit and re-installed it. Problems with Wireless streaming still present.
Summary: We use these at remote sites with 3 to 10 employees with VPN back to our main office. They do a great job and are very reliable. Build quality is excellent. We've only used them in small places so I can't comment on the range, but it maintains a solid connection to the client machines in our small space. Their are 2 small gripes I have. One is that VPN sometimes drops connection and the only way to get it back is unplug it, wait about 5 minutes, and plug it back in.
IPSec works nicely, SSL not so much on Windows 7 64 bit

Summary: I read the caveats on the included IPSec client, which is a (old) 2010 OEM version of the Greenbow IPSec client, and decided to just try the real thing (google Greenbow IPSec). Instructions were reasonably clear but it still took me a few tries to get it running well, and it does run well. So, I then decided to try the SSL support. Well, the 32bit Windows 7 support seems like it might work right away, but I am running a 64 bit OS, with Internet Explorer 10.
Summary: I've been doing IT professionally for over 17 years. I have worked with a lot of routers, firewalls, and WiFi access points over the years. This unit has been great. I have deployed four of these units to date. I created a fully meshed WAN (using these routers as IPSEC VPN endpoints) for four remote sites of a medical office. Setup could not have been easier.
Summary: I have 4 of these setup for clients of mine. 3 are for a business office for various tenants and one for for an industrial design office. I've also recommended these to IT colleagues and one of them set one up for a law firm and the other one setup it up for a fire station. All setups went without hitch and the interfaces are very easy to use. VPN is fairly easy to setup but if you get stuck you can read the manual (LOL) or call Netgear Pro support for free.
Summary: Replaced an Cisco 871 router with this. Peer to Peer Worked first time to a sonic wall. Cisco took weeks and the 871 connection to Linksys never worked right. Wireless is faster then the access point I was using before. Everything I have done with the routers has just worked as expected. Cisco small 871 and 880 and Linksys router took weeks to setup. Several calls to cisco support. So far so good.
Thought it was OK, but now revised this review for 1 star..

Summary: First off, to be fair, I typically deal with higher end products --- I got this one for my home connection because I didnt want to pay the premium for an enterprise unit but needed some of the functionality. What I needed: - A good wireless router for home use - The ability to run IPSEC VPN Tunnels between my home and multiple work sites - The ability to run my VOIP telephone over 2 of those IPSEC VPN Tunnels - I am currently running 3 VPN tunnels 24x7, had no issues,...

Summary: Pros: Easy setup. Great menu navigation. Great SSL VPN client (haven't tested IPsec client but most people probably won't use it.) Super powerful wifi. Very good ProSafe series technical support. Windows 7 32/64 bit VPN support (fixed with Nov 2010 firmware!!) 5 SSL VPN licenses and 5 ipSec. Perfect for small biz. Lifetime hardware warranty. No yearly license fees like other firewall manufacturers. Cons: "Only" 60 mbps WAN to LAN!? LOL.
