Has many bugs, bad support.

Soheil Sahimi, Amazon

  • Summary: I do IT work so decided to go with the netgear business router. 1st of all, if you dont upgrade the firmware, it gives options for DMZ. (however, the option for DMZ is hidden in many menues, in fact the tab for it is missing, but if you go to IPMG, it magically appears) however, if you upgrade the firmware, the DMZ page goes away and there no longer is any DMZ. (even when it existed on the older firmware, it would not work). contacted Netgear Support 3 times.

Netgear Prosafe Wireless-n VPN router

Steve, Amazon

  • Summary: I was never able to get the unit to function with my home network. I became frustrated with it and returned it. I received a full refund from Amazon. The unit may have been functional but I could never prove that no matter how hard I tried or the advice I asked for. It may work well for someone else not me.

Not good for VPN

Menteb, Amazon

  • Summary: The reason I bought the SRXN3205 was simple: I want my laptop to become part of my home network where ever I am. This has proven to be impossible to accomplish with this router. Also, connecting with OS X requires you to buy software like VPN Tracker. In short, a waist of money. Better to buy a Cisco 5505 if you ask me.

Terribly misleading product

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: This product lacks serious internal support. Product was released with SSL VPN functionality on windows vista (64bit), windows 7 (64bit), or MacOS NOT WORKING. They also do not have any time table for when it will be getting such support. Other products in the Netgear SSL VPN family have this support already. I suspect this is a company wide issue rather than a product issue.

Rubbish and Poor Support

MDD, Amazon
25 November 2008
  • 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.
