1 out of 5 eggsNo PPTP Functionality for OSX

Pros: It routes internet connection to our systems, but that's about it

Cons: We bought this router specifically because it is listed as supporting PPTP VPN, however it does not seem to for OSX. Additionally, absolutely terrible customer support in escalating to an engineer who actually knows more than my IT guy working on this issue. WIll be returning this unit as soon as a suitable replacement arrives.

Other Thoughts: This is actually the second Netgear unit that we tried to setup up PPTP on. The first one an FVS318N was listed as supporting PPTP, but we were told by Netgear that due to a firmware upgrade, that feature had been removed. Obviously a frustrating scenario that will likely preclude me from ever using Netgear products again.

3 out of 5 eggsFeature packed, low cost. Tops at 70Mbit

Pros: Low cost, lots of features.

Cons: I knew that 924Mbit was a long shot, but I was hoping it would do at least half of that, in the end the most I could get out of it was about 70 - 80Mbit of routing throughput which was rather disappointing.

Other Thoughts: If you have 70Mbit or less WAN links this should be fine for most offices.

5 out of 5 eggsVery versatile

Pros: At my office we use multiple ISPs to service different segments of our local market with decent speeds. This is one of the rare routers where we were able to set large blocks of IP addresses up per ISP on each WAN port (primary WAN IP and then add all your other IP's in your block as secondary).

After setting up various IP's, we created dozens of VLANs to match each customer. The netgear allows you to create an outbound rule for each vlan and match it against a particular WAN and secondary IP. The incoming NAT rules will work for secondary IP's to internal vlans as expected.

I haven't seen many routers with a graphical interface that can pull this off and it is very impressive. The VPN to a specific VLAN also works as expected. With these features I was able to eliminate numerous small vpn routers from our cabinet that clients were using to connect to us.

It takes a little experience and some guesswork since the docs do not spell it out on how to do these functions but I came away very happy with a less complicated mess of wires and power cords and a single interface for my cabinet and our clients.

Cons: My first unit ordered arrived with defective flash memory. It wouldn't boot properly and the firmware could not be updated due to I/O errors when saving it to the device. Did not give me a good first impression.

Other Thoughts: Update the firmware right off to reduce your future troubleshooting.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice VPN router

Pros: High throughput
Sturdy steel case
Redundant WAN ports
Gigabit all around
Good VPN support
Internal power supply
Serial port
Intuitive interface

Cons: Early firmware buggy (newest firmware works much better)
SSL issues with IE11

Other Thoughts: Had to use Chrome to get the firmware updated because early firmware has SSL issues with IE11 and latest Firefox so couldn't get to user interface except with Chrome. With newer firmware and remote HHTPS management turned off, can now use Firefox as well. Otherwise, an excellent router with astronomical throughput and a fairly easy to use interface, Very nice.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SMB Firewall, but not for everyone

Pros: The feature set and price/performance point of this firewall is astounding. Extremely well built with metal case and included rack ears. Fan is not excessively loud, nor does unit run hot at all.

Multiple options for VPN clients (i.e., IPsec, PPTP, L2TP, SSL, etc.). Four GigE WAN ports, allow straight load balancing or protocol binding to bond your traffic over one WAN interface.

FAST throughput of nearly 1Gbps with SPI. 1000BaseT (GigE) everywhere! Support for multiple VLAN's for segregating LAN traffic. Standard Netgear ProSafe lifetime warranty. Inboard power supply (no wall wart transformer). This is a more than worthy replacement for the old FVX538 line.

Cons: SSL-VPN looks better on paper than it ends up being in real life. Nowadays with Shrew Soft, IPsec is just as fast and easy.

Not a 'con' per se, but I'm not sure I like the DMZ being relegated to one specific port (port #4). Also, by default the DMZ has no outbound rule meaning all outbound traffic is dropped by default. Easy enough to create that rule, but that should have been more clearly documented IMHO.

No wall mount slots on the bottom of the unit. But rack ears can be turned 90 degrees for the same affect.

Other Thoughts: Do I need to say update the firmware right out of the box? Apparently I do, as many reviewers gave bad marks for old, outdated 2.x.x & 3.x.x firmware. Since the 4.x.x platform has been released most of the previous complaints and issues have been addressed and fixed.

I have several of these deployed at various client sites. No complaints, no problems, no issues. You do need to have a firm grasp of IP routing and networking to get all the VLAN and multi-WAN features enabled successfully.

I've used LOTS of firewalls from various manufacturers such as SonicWALL & Cisco for over 20 years and this is rapidly becoming my new 'go to' firewall. Fast & flexible!

After deploying a few of these into client networks I retired my own FVS336G and installed one in my own office mostly to support a growing number of IPsec VPN's. This unit is rock solid on 4.2.1-2 firmware. Absolutely no complaints.

IMHO, Netgear needs to scale this down into a 2 WAN port model and replace or update the aging FVS336G platform.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat when works, and that's a big WHEN

Pros: Nice when it works, good and easy GUI, throughput is great, easy to setup

Cons: The major problem with this thing is that ... well, let's begin:
1. When you assign multiple IP addresses to a WAN port and reboot - all secondary IP are lost and must be re-entered. Some one mentioned in their review that you must use IP on different subsets - that's not true. If you get a block of IPs from your ISP you can assign them all to the same interface. You cant spread them between interfaces.
2. When it performs - great, but this thing has a mind of it's own - one second throughput is 70 Mbs, a minute later less than 1
3. Constantly locks up and requires to be physically rebooted - does not accept any remote connections
4. One of the major functions of this unit is VPN. We have 7 remote users using their expensive VPN client and connection gets dropped every 5 minutes. CONSTANTLY. Ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: Cant recommend this to any business unless a tech lives within 5 minutes in order to periodically visit the router in order to reboot it when it locks up and it does it at least weekly.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not even measure up to their previous dual WANs

Pros: If it would actually function, it looks like it has a lot more horsepower than previous Netgear dual WAN routers

Cons: Do yourself a favor and do NOT get this expensive paper weight! I have several Netgear dual WAN routers deployed that work, but are overloaded, so I thought this would be the answer. I have been working with Netgear support for 5 weeks and they cannot even achieve the same 1:1 NAT functionality over multiple WANs to single LAN that the duals do. This unit is just far too unstable for me to deploy as sometimes one link will work and the other will not, then it will just change without any configuration change...

Other Thoughts: Purchasing this router was an EXPENSIVE MISTAKE!

1 out of 5 eggsNot that great

Pros: This router has a large feature set.

Cons: The router randomly crashes and locks up. I have to reboot it daily now which is not helpful since there isn't a way to automate this easily. Overall I'm not impressed with this router due to reliability.

Other Thoughts: I'm not impressed with this router. We have about 50 computers maximum that connect to our network, but this thing can't take a full load. Looking to get something else now, something that is more reliable.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing flexibility for the money

Pros: The feature set this router gives you for the money is nothing short of astounding. Extremely solid build. Not excessively loud or hot. Multiple options for VPN client/bridge. Huge throughput capacity. GigE everywhere. Lifetime warranty. Have yet to notice a dropped LAN connection of any kind after more than a year.

Cons: Proper configuration for complex networks can be tricky, has glitched out more than once with improper combination of settings requiring a factory reset/settings rebuild. Config portal is not as lightning fast as I would have hoped (but not terribly slow either).

Other Thoughts: I have setup three of these for small businesses. Two in a permanent IPsec bridge for one business. The VPN bridge is insanely stable, will usually auto-reconnect after any disruption, after over a year I have only had to manually reset/restart the connection twice.

Throughput over the IPsec VPN connection is also very very fast for a router in this price range.

SSL VPN is tricky to get working, but I have found the much easier SSL Port Forwarding is all you really need in most circumstances anyway.

All three of these that I have setup handle VoIP data without issue. QoS can be tricky to understand, but if you know what you are doing these routers can accommodate anything. But if you don't have the upstream bandwidth to handle the VoIP data outbound, no router can help you.

Domain integration for VPN client credentials/console login is a very nice feature.

This router also has an extensive set of logging and monitoring features that can come in very handy when problems a

1 out of 5 eggsLook elsewhere...

Pros: Nice footprint, nice advertised features

Cons: HORRIBLE performance. From a networking standpoint these firewalls analyze too much packet traffic and ultimately cause you more grief than what they were designed to alleviate. There's no way to adjust the level of Stateful Packet Inspection or turn it off. If you're using VOIP, forget about it!
