Summary: I recently bought a new Arris Surfboard modem from Costco which says it supports up to a 384 Mbps connection. Because of my old Asus WL-520GC router, I was only getting about 38Mbps on a good day.
Pros: First real home wired router I have purchased. Performance is great. We are sending all sorts of large files and media streams through this router with no problems. Setup was a breeze and I like the web interface. Only regret is not buying a router with more ports.
Cons: Poor support for DDNS (dynamic DNS), only lets you choose from a couple of commercial DNS's (well ok a couple are free but you will get bombarded with ads). I don't want to load this with DD-WRT or equivalent, but with the name brand router manufacturers had better support for "homebrew" dynamic ...
Summary: I'm moving towards wired installs where high performance is important, because it seems with high performance wireless routers it can be a gamble on whether or not it can deliver the speeds and optimizing the layout of wireless networks in an old house can be difficult.
Summary: I have three TL-R600VPNs now and I'm impressed with the uptime of these little guys. I have yet to have one go down. PTP VPN was a breeze to setup. They have a small footprint which is easy to sit just about anywhere.
Pros: This fast, low drag device is a breeze to setup (if you know what you're doing, that is) and has amazing uptime.
Cons: Setup instructions can be quite lacking, especially for someone who doesn't understand all the features. No option to rack-mount.
Summary: I just received this router, and I have to say I am quite impressed. In the past, I've been using two Cisco/Linksys WRVS4400N Routers to connect two sites together via VPN secure tunnel. The old Cisco Routers always give me issues, and always require a power cycle to work.
Summary: Fantastic VPN router! This is one of the most robust yet easy to configure routers I have ever used. Many years spent with slow, buggy Linksys routers. The value and features can't be beat on this one. This was unboxed and set up within 15 minutes. It's also very fast, no slowdowns.
Summary: Tough outer shell, and easily can run numerous connections at 1Gib Up and Down. I have mine mounted on the wall vertically to save space. Easy admin interface, and a quality power supply. I have actually bought two of these, as I've been that impressed.
Summary: I'm a home user and I needed a wired router to sit inside our homes communication panel. I installed and configured this router in minutes. Getting 102Mbps from Time Warner and I've pretty much just set it and forget it with this thing.
Pros: Easy setup of PPTP VPN. Works great in a site-to-site VPN configuration too between my local network and Windows Azure even though it's not technically a supported device. Automatic DDNS updates are great since I don't pay for a static IP from my ISP!
Cons: Reboot required for MAC address reservations
