Categories > Firewalls / Security Appliances > Cisco Small Business > Cisco Small Business RV325-K9-NA Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Routers 40000 Simultaneous Sessions < 250Mbps

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Buy Netgear instead
Pros: None
Cons: I kept thinking that with the Linksys brand stepping up to the Cisco name that things would be better. The router randomly connects and disconnects, constantly requires rebooting, is extremely slow when it does connect, and is the consistently the weak link in our system. We have never had the same type of problems with Netgear. This will be going back to get a brand that actually works. What was I thinking?

Categories > Firewalls / Security Appliances > CHECKPOINT > Check Point 2200 Network Security/Firewall Appliance

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 CPAP-SG2200-NGFW-HA
Pros: This is the CPAP-SG2200-NGFW-HA. Note the "-HA"
Cons: Newegg product listing calls this the "Check Point 2200 Network Security/Firewall Appliance" and doesn't show you that it is the HIGH AVAILABILITY version. This product will not work unless you order two units as a HA pair. There are also issues getting the license transferred from the distributor, you cannot automatically register it on Checkpoint's site and will have to call in. Also you will need to buy a license and support to use the hardware after the included 14 day trial period.
Other Thoughts: Newegg should place the product number on the box in the title. There are currently 3 seemingly identical "Checkpoint 2200" units on the site with 3 different prices.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Warning - No Support
Pros: It seems easy enough to set up
Cons: No support
Limited VPN options
Other Thoughts: Apparently, Cisco EOL this device in Oct. 2014. They will no longer support it unless you buy a service contract. Effectively, there is no warranty unless you pay extra.

Categories > Firewalls / Security Appliances > Cisco Small Business > Cisco Small Business RV325-K9-NA Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Routers 40000 Simultaneous Sessions < 250Mbps

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Outstanding Home Router
Pros: 1. Easy setup for an advanced router
2. VPN support
3. Vlan support
4. Fast
Cons: None so far, exactly what I needed.
Other Thoughts: I run an advanced home network that is more like a small enterprise than a typical home network. I run everything through the home network to include home automation, VoIP for my home phone system, streaming video (we do not subscribe to cable), VPNs, several vlans, as well as web surfing. I needed a router that would handle all these tasks well. The RV325 delivers with room to grow.

I would also note that while this router is very easy to setup as Cisco routers go, it is still a professional level router and requires some knowledge of networking to take advantage of the router's features.

Pros: It's bright red, perfect for a firewall! Basic setup is easy. Has web interface and intuitive menus.Management software suite is included (free download.)
Cons: none so far...
Other Thoughts: Replaced ancient Cisco ASA device.
1500 page user manual can be daunting, but is actually easy to understand and has basic examples of more complex configurations.

Categories > Firewalls / Security Appliances > ZyXEL > ZyXEL ZyWALL ZWUSG20 Internet Security Firewall with 4 Gigabit LAN / DMZ Ports, 2 IPSec VPN, SSL VPN , and 3G WAN Support

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Good Device but Quirky
Pros: Inexpensive, seems high quality construction, fast, interface is well laid out
Cons: Difficult documentation to find things. Simple tasks are often difficult to perform. The interface is quirky in that if it does not like something it seems to freeze up. This may or may not cause a crash. For instance to change the IP address of the first LAN zone (lan1), if you are plugged into lan1, the interface will freeze. The same if you log in through the lan1 address. If you yous lan2 and sign in thru the wan address you can change the IP address without a freeze up. The first time I have had a device that is this touchy. This is a high quality device but it is not for the faint of heart or the newbie!
Other Thoughts: Tech support seems very busy. On hold for a long time and email questions often take two days for an answer.

Categories > Firewalls / Security Appliances > ZyXEL > ZyXEL USG110 Next-Generation USG with 100 VPN Tunnels, SSL VPN, 2 GbE WAN, 1 OPT GbE, 4 GbE LAN/DMZ, with 1 Year UTM Services

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Fast and cheap, yet packed with features
Pros: 1. Fast compared to other devices in the same price range.
2. Very detailed configuration options. Policies and be easily applied to arbitrary combinations of machines on the network.
3. L2TP for native VPN support for iOS/OS X.
4. Lightweight DNS server builtin for those with a small number of devices on the local network with a hardcoded name and IP address.
5. Fan speed control. Fan will stop if the device is not busy.
6. Outstanding online documentation available for download from the manufacture web site.
7 Even though the complexity of the device is high, most of the features actually work as advertised or the way you would expect them to work.
Cons: 1. The actual AV throughput is nowhere near the advertised throughput.
2. The learning curve is a bit steep due to the complexity of configuration.
Other Thoughts: I'm a power home user that bought this to protect the local network and for occasional connecting to home via VPN through a smart phone or laptop. This device was purchased to replace a 2 year old UTM of a different brand. In general I'm very happy with the new device.

I have 100mb/s cable at home and I bought a higher end device since very few of these UTM devices can do anything close to full network speed. The USG110 is very fast in general to the point that I can saturate the cable connection with all the protections turned on including content filtering, but with anti-virus turned off. With AV turned on, the device typically gets about 30-50mb/s which is nowhere near the advertised speed of 250mb/s. This is a bit disconcerting, but the USG110 is still about 2 times faster then my previous UTM at a fraction of the cost. It's also very easy to exempt some machines from AV protection or disable AV when occasionally downloading large files.

The fan speed control is a huge plus. As mentioned, the device will put the fan into low speed or even stop it if the traffic is low. This is great for the home or small business environment as excess noise can be a real problem.

Finally, I would like to mention that like most UTMs content filtering can remove many of the annoying ads from web pages that slow things down.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Best For the Price
Pros: For the price you cant beat the control you have of the this, not to mention the option for a 32GB USB drive you can attach and use as a NAS.
The GUI interface is fantastic for any and all controls, words cannot describe how great of a product this is.
Cons: none

Categories > Firewalls / Security Appliances > Cisco Small Business > Cisco Small Business RV320-K9-NA Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Routers

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 RV320 okay at first then slowly drives you insane!
Pros: The RV320 is a working router with good throughput, and the web UI is fast enough to be usable, much improved from the RV180.
Cons: The RV320 seems to randomly drop outbound connections, which leads to high TCP retransmission on approx 1% of outbound connections. This causes occasional web page load failures, broken picutres, and missing CSS. It also seems to break about 5% of outbound SSH connections.
Other Thoughts: After being very confused about what was going on, I used tcpdump to look at at packets on inside and outside of firewall and noted that it is causing excessive TCP retransmissions, but they seem to be confined to a radomly selected fraction of TCP connectons, as if there is a serious bug in the TCP connection tracking code. Also, it seems to be playing with TCP timestamps and unnecessarliy rewriting TCP source ports. Maybe it just doesn't like Linux boxes, which is strange, becuase it is one.
