      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.

      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.

            Great entry level business VPN router

            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.

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

            My whole office was in despair not knowing what was needed to get my office up and running. I had to get a tech person to figure out what was going on. Before he came I had called Cablevision to help with the situation. Stayed on the phone for almost 1 hour to find out that there was something not working right with the Netgear. My tech came in, checked all the wiring in my office and upon process of elimination he determined that I had an old Netgear and was not functioning to the fullest extent. I then purchased this unit from Staples and sure enough that was the problem.

            The device cannot handle a small office browsing the Internet. 15 users can't browse without things slowing down. Do not use in a business environment.
