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: 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.
AWESOME SMALL BIZ VPN WIFI ROUTER! YES, it does support Windows 7 32/64 bit with free firmware update!

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.
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.
Summary: sehr gutes gerät, hab ihn vor allem wegen des starken w-lans gekauft und muss sagen sehr gute reichweiten, mein vorhergehender router ist kaputt gegangen, dann musste ich die zeit mit einer fitzbox überbrücken und muss sagen das diese absolut schlecht w-lan reichweite hat imgegensatzt zu diesem gerät.
Summary: En bra brandvägg med bra hastighet. Vill du ha hög vpn genomströming så är denna att föredra. Med senaste firmwaren funkar även vpn ssl för windows 7 (x32 & x64) Lätt att sätta upp och bara tuffar på. Hade fått full pott om man kunde anpassa ssl portalen, likt cisco asa serien.
