4 out of 5 eggsDescent Router

Pros: Descent router for the money. I have purchased this router for businesses with 50 users or less. Good wireless range and fairly solid performance. The VPN feature works but is definitely the weak link for this product. SSL VPN works but can be pretty clunky and the ActiveX software is not seamless. I've had to tweak security policies in different versions of IE 8,9 and 10. You have to use the 64 bit version of IE if your on a 64 bit machine. By default, 64 bit machines use the 32 bit version of IE. Also, have had several VPN policies corrupt which had to be rebuilt from scratch. Like I said, not horrible, but definitely not perfect either. I stay away from IP SEC VPN because of the large costs associated with the proprietary client. And I am running the latest firmware to date. For small offices, below 50 people, this is a good sell. Anyone can go out and buy a great $1000.00 router and freak out your client as we all know in the small business sector. I'd rather put that money in my pocket :) The trick is to find an acceptable router with VPN that perfoms descent at this price point. The three offices I use this product in have had great success for several years running now with a VPN hiccup here and there.

Cons: VPN can be clunky at times. IP SEC VPN client is not free. +200 for 5 licenses. SSL VPN is free.

Other Thoughts: Descent router for sub 50 users.

2 out of 5 eggsUnstable firmware

Pros: Cheaper than commercial grade routers/firewalls.

Cons: Not as good as a commercial grade router/firewall. I had it about two weeks before I returned it. I have an Exchange server, a web/ftp server, and a RRAS server. The latest firmware was very buggy causing the router to spontaneously reboot at random intervals. Downgrading to an older firmware and turning off some functionality improved stability but I shouldn't have to compromise.

Other Thoughts: I ended up with an ASA 5505 and a PoE WAP - they just work.

Pros: Fast throughput and what you would expect from a Netgear product

Cons: What upset me is the fact that you have to pay 299.00 for a 5user client license to use the VPN client from Netgear to get the VPN to work. I tried setting this up for passthrough with no luck because it doesn't give you the ability to allow for EAP or GRE protocols for PPTP or L2TP. It only allows you to open UDP or TCP ports. It does have PPTP service builtin to forward to an IP... HOWEVER... i have not been able to get that to work. I even went on their forums to try and get an answer, but no one had a clear answer on how to get an VPN except for the Netgear VPN client to work.

Other Thoughts: If you want VPN this item really costs 2x as much than the actual cost of the item. For that price... pay another couple hundred and get an actuall business class device.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Small Office

Pros: Setup is very easy due to the great GUI interface. Our office building is very old and all previous wireless devices required additional antennas or access points placed around the office, this single unit managed to cover the entire office without additional antennas or access points.

Cons: Netgear ProSafe support is a hit or miss.

5 out of 5 eggsSet a wireless access password.

Pros: Great product, I'm sure. Price seems decent at $250 on sale.

Cons: Not setting your wireless password securely, and relying on MAC info for wireless access alone.

I don't care what you use it for, streaming Bambi or what. It's the principle.

Other Thoughts: Set a wireless access password, for rootssake!
Don't rely on MAC tables. MAC is trivial to spoof.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome for Home

Pros: I have been using NetGear (Blue STUFF) for years. I had the (not wireless) 318 before this, got them for the VPN and firewall in one for a awesome price. Some may think this is overkill for home, but I think its just right. The MAC/IP reservation and MAC filtering is awesome, my wireless network has no password, very cool.

Cons: Netgear support, forget about it, I can't understand them and they know less then we do. Don't waste your time, you can google around the net and find more help then they can give you. Also, forget about the warranty, if it goes bad and things do, just buy another and save yourself a headacke.

Other Thoughts: If you know your way around a router, want vpn/firewall/MAC addressing, this is for you. Took an egg off for the lack of support and lack of firmware updates for known flaws.

5 out of 5 eggssemi-pro device, vpn works

Pros: Lots of functionality. After some help from netgear - yes, they do provide support - I got IPSEC vpn working. Note - the virtual domain names in the client need to be reversed from the ones you set up in the router (logical, but contrary to what is shown in the manual).

Network speed and network reach are very good. I host web sites in my SOHO environment, and am now able to vpn into my network e.g. to connect to my source control system.

Cons: Manual is not always correct. How various options work with each other is not always explained - it will become obvious if you play with the settings.

If you do not have at least some experience with Networking/Router setup, get someone who does, and/or call the help line.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended for the price if you need VPN access to your network.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Throughput and performance

Pros: Great Throughput and performance
Great Security
Ease of use
Customization, VPN etc.

Cons: No Rogue AP search and could use a bit more Wireless customization

Other Thoughts: I purchased this router to upgrade an older Prosafe Firewall when I increased my bandwidth with Cox to 25/4. My FR328S was topping at about 15Mbps plus I wanted to eliminate the Wireless AP and combine into one device. People need to keep in mind that this is not a typical home router. This is a business solution and as such the configuration is a bit more detailed (port mapping etc). Port mapping and firewall rules are the same as I always remember with Netgear devices and are quite simple when you understand the configuration. VPN through put is quite good when connecting to my Office VPN.
I could use with a bit more features in the wireless portion, but overall its a solid router and I have no issues connecting any devices to it wired or wireless.
I would highly recommend this to anyone especially if you need throughput up to 60Mbps.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome.

Pros: I rarely, if ever write reviews on Newegg, but the search for a very reliable firewall without turning to Cisco or Fortinet or some other Enterprise/Business (expensive) solution is difficult.

This is hands down the best firewall unit below $300 in my opinion. Solid stability, UPnP for those who need it, VPN, bandwidth metering. Despite reviews, my personal opinion is that the web interface is very intuitive and easy to navigate. It seems that they've polished a decent product into an awesome product in these last revisions, way to go NETGEAR.

Cons: The web interface is sometimes kind of slow which can be irritating if you have lots of initial configuration to do.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME router for small business or power home user!!!

Pros: Easy setup. Great menu navigation. Super powerful wifi. Decent ProSafe series technical support. Windows 7 32/64 bit VPN support (fixed with Nov 2010 firmware.) 5 SSL VPN licenses and 5 ipSec. Perfect for small biz. Lifetime hardware warranty. No yearly license fees like other firewall manufacturers.

Cons: "Only" 60 mbps WAN to LAN!? LOL. This may be a "problem" it you have 75/100 meg Fios but for 99% of the world it should be more than AOK. Connected with 35/25 Fios and it hits those numbers with ease.

Other Thoughts: I just did a network job at a office building and replaced 3 old firewalls with 3 of these. (3 separate clients in one building.) Reason being: great price for what you get and Netgear doesn't nickle and dime for every feature. The only things is if you want more ipsec it seems like you need to buy a 5 pack of the software. It does come with one license but really, with the SSL tunnels you won't really need those.

Overall, setup was super easy. The manual is very thorough even though there are some typo's. LOL.

In reading reviews about this router, some people find it complex. Read The Fine Manual! Or, there is no manual included. Tip. Google "SRXN3205 manual" But if you find config complex/difficult then you probably shouldn't be working with this firewall.

VPN Windows 7 compatibility was fixed with firmware Firmware Version: 3.0.6-29 Q4 of 2010.

In short, for those of you looking for a solid business VPN wifi router, this is a no brainer at just over $200.

My 2 cent
