Summary: I've used the Netopia R910 before and it's a great VPN router for small and medium businesses. Great value for the price! The only con is that this model is now a few years old, so it doesn't support Gigabit ethernet, but it still works great!

Summary: I owned a Linksys router and started looking at other brands because it was becoming clear a consumer level router would not perform as I wanted. The Linksys would tend to crash when handling multiple fast download streams, and the throughput rate decreased.
Great Ethernet router for small/medium businesses & branch offices

Summary: I have used the Netopia R910 Ethernet router for the better part of 10 years. This is a real business class router/firewall - I've found it perfect for the businesses I support. R910s are reliable. Over the last ten years I've deployed perhaps 150 of these devices.
Summary: I used this product in a small business. I had no problems with speed since it exceeded the available internet speed being used. It is a very secure system and has advanced features for ultimate firewall security. Most of the features are not available on Linksys routers.
Summary: Ease of setting up a VPN connection. Disappointed in the speed, but was aware when purchasing the router. Would recommend to any person just entering the field of VPN and secure connection. Mike Holst
Summary: nobody does broadband access better than Netopia. that is because of their products and their USA based tech and customer support. in this day of 'disposable' equipment, Netopia keeps on producing the best in class and helping with upgrades and support too.
Summary: So for your small network you need a Router, 4port hub and occationally want to connect to it from on the road. this is the box you want, It will do everything other routers do plus it has a VPN SERVER that works with windows right out of the box.
