Cons: I need to forward/translate a few ports to internal devices on TL-R480T+ but in virtual servers there is no such option. same applicability supported on V5 of this model. i got lots of very cheap ADSL modem router that support such think, to my surprise this Load Balance Routers don't, i hope this can be fixed by firmware update but not yet
Summary: I bought this some time ago so that I could connect my network to both of my ISPs (Shaw and Telus), together seamlessly and without a lot of headaches setting up some sort of PC-based router. It has been working well, though it does have a few idiosyncrasies. In my opinion the biggest problem with this device is that many of the "Help panes" displayed on the side of the configuration web pages are poorly translated to English.
Pros: WAN selection based on response time, IP connection persistence and application persistence (I take the latter to mean protocol), 3 VLAN configurations (isolates 0, 1 or 2 LAN ports from the other(s)), LAN port mirroring, Firewall can filter by IP, MAC address, and domain, ICMP, UDP and TCP DOS attack filtering with configurable threshold values, Blockable ping both inbound and outbound, Desktop- or Rack-mountable (comes with detachable brackets), Excellent price for ...
Cons: Terrible English translations on some configuration pages, Dynamic DNS automatic update function does not work, LAN ports are 10/100, not gigabit, Pointless serial port on the front panel (come on, it's the 20th century already)
Pros: This is an excellent little unit, with all the features you'd expect from a higher priced system. The GUI is perfectly workable, about on the level of the average home router or switch, with a few nice bonus features. All in all, well worth the money.
Cons: It's a bit larger than it needs to be, technically, and I personally don't use the serial port connection. It is a bit of an archaic machine but who cares about looks with a router anyway?
Pros: This is a followup for the previous review of this product. After several months they have released a new firmware fixing the issues I had with this router. I am testing it and all loks well at this time.
Cons: Takes a little longer to get working just the way you want it but for the price it seems to be working at this time. The GUI interface needs a bit more work as I don't believe that all the routers capabilities are available in the GUI configs.
Cons: Received the unit with an old firmware. It worked ok but balancing was off. I decided to download the latest firmware. Once loaded to the box it faled to loadbalance or failover. The only way to failover was to remove one of the WAN Cat5 connections. I attempted to get support but the people that answered did not know how to work with this unit. They told me to send an email to tech support which I did. It has been over a week and I have not received a response.
Excerpt: Több WAN port, tűzfal, fém házas kivitel.
Pros: Kicsit komolyabb kialakítás - fém ház, rack szerelvény az ár mégis szolid.
Cons: Buta szoftver. Nem egy "valódi" router: nincs szabad konfiguráció. Céleszköz: alapvetően arra találták ki, hogy több Internet szolgáltatás lekezelését megoldja egy olcsó rendszer., Olyan alap dolog, mint port forward eltérő portszámra nincs, csak azonosra., Általában a tűzfal része bugyuta., Nem lehet beállítani, hogy melyik az elsődleges kapcsolat és melyik a másodlagos - feltételezték a programozók, hogy egy ADSL kapcsolat alacsonyabb rangú, mint a fix IP-s stb.
Summary: Ich habe das Gerät erworben um meinen Kabel- und DSL-Internetuugang zu bündeln. Als preiswertester Multi-WAN-Router hätte ich deutlich weniger Leistung erwartet! Das Gerät ist sehr solide verarbeitet, passt auch in ein 19" Rack (oder unter einen IKEA Lack-Tisch) und bietet sehr viele Einstellungs-Möglichkeiten.
