      This is a great router to have for extra capabilities. I bought it for the extra wired ports (previous one only had four) and the firewall capabilities. The GigE speed ports was bonus. So far, so good after a few months of full time use with five PCs, a network hard drive and a network printer.
      If you want to move up into the next level of equipment for your home, this is a good second level from standard home user equipment. It is intended for small business use, but works well for those of us that have a few extra PCs. :)
      The firewall capabilities work well. I haven't had a chance to use the VPN features yet.
      The only con I had was going from Linksys to NetGear. The interface is quite different and the layout of this particular model is different again from home units. Moving to this model will require more networking knowledge and skill than the average home user. And, calling support doesn't get you any better first line experience that I could tell as they seem more familiar with the home units than the small business units.

      I purchased this unit to replace a 3-year old 10/100 firewall. Immediately, I began experiencing faulty, erratic wifi performance. I Purchased a second on the thought that the first unit was a lemon. however, the second unit experienced the same issue - random, intermittent failure of the wifi signal. I have returned both units and reconnected my old unit. it works flawlessly, albeit slowly. I will look for another brand of firewall and purchase a separate wifi access point.

      On a separate note, Staples return policy and process was very customer-friendly.

      netgear fire wall

      Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE N300 WiFi 8-Port Gigabit VPN Firewall FVS318N:

      I purchased this from my local staples store because the sonic wall unit I had was causing the internet to go down. The new unit I purchased is now working fine. My main frustration with the netgear firewall was the trouble I had installing and configuring it. I did nor have a problem understanding or following the instructions provided by Netgear, I apparently had othert network issues. It would have been nice (with staples having a "tech" department to provide an 800 number to try to assist customers with thses items. I ended up calling a local computer service to configure the unit, and they were quick to point out why I should have bought the unit from them.

            Great entry level business VPN router

            By VPN that works

            Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE N300 WiFi 8-Port Gigabit VPN Firewall FVS318N:

            The Netgear Prosafe is just what the small business (home office) needs to add wireless "N" and gigabit ethernet behind a commercial cable modem. We needed to be able to support remote access via ipsec VPN, and the SSL support is a plus. The VPN Wizard simplifies setup and the Greenbow based client is very straightforward.

            Purchased this to replace an older Netgear VPN router with 2 VPN tunnels in it. Even after upgrading the firmware I could not the VPN setup to allow all the needed connections. Replaced it with a Cisco 800 series router, although its a lot more money it works.
