4 out of 5 eggsDHCP Reservations Can be set!

Pros: Gigabit, VPN, flexible forwarding rules. Has a few extra features over your average home router. Improved connectivity for Out of Office users by installing two of these routers.

Cons: Setup is not laid out intuitively. When I got it, I couldn't figure out how to setup static DHCP leases. I looked around online, found the reviews here complaining about the same thing. Gave up and let another machine hand out dhcp. Turns out, you can do static leases! Just not from where you think you'd set them. More in Other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: DHCP Static reservations are possible- found this stumbling around a forum looking for info on the VPN- Under Security->MAC Access Control. You can setup an Allow rule for a MAC Address including Static ARP and IP. Why not just have a simple "Make Static" option in the leases table, or "Add Static" on the DHCP server setup? IDK. The manual does cover this as well, but again, not in the section on DHCP. Every piece of tech equipment has it's quirks, but performance is key. This seems to be a good performer after being in place for 6 months. May re-review once I get some heaver VPN use and start using it for DHCP now that I found how to make Static Leases.

1 out of 5 eggsAmateur product at best....

Pros: On sale at the time of purchase. Gig ports

Cons: Where do I begin. Non existing support. 4 day response via email without answering questions. Finding where zyxel keeps their firmware updates is a task in itself. I'm now wondering if there is any development in that regard. Poor customer service, "O" eggs... There is no way to reserve DHCP addresses, (amateur product)
There is no way to set up static routes. (adv. Routing)

Other Thoughts: I will return this inadequate item, and stay away from ZyXEL products. Any company that has non existing support can't be on our vendor list.
Be warned.....

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT EVEN TRY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: Cheap price but the underlying cost is that it may not work at all!!!

Cons: It worked perfectly for 1 minute and 23 seconds! I just received today at 5:30 PM and it was DOA by 6:30. Please just save your time and money and I now see why I couldn't find any reviews on this firewall. I always like to try the underdogs products but this time I got bit.
I configured it before installing it on my home network and after I installed it I walked to one of my laptops, opened safari, visited MSN homepage and before I could enter my hotmail password the firewall dropped the connection between it and my cable modem! I worked on continuously for 3 hours with no avail! I'm not wasting no more of my time and I highly suggest you look elsewhere.

Other Thoughts: Just for a little background on my tech level so this may help guide you towards another firewall device. I'm a network engineer and I work for a Internet Service Provider, I've been in IT for over 12 years, I have a B.S in Internetworking Technology, and a Cisco CCNP certification. In all of my years in IT, I have never seen a more frustrating piece of junk. I have fixed major routing loops in larger business networks quicker than I could get this device to function properly. It worked intermittently and given that I have only owned for a few hours I don't want this to ruin my home network. I was simply going to use this firewall in my home network for VPN capability and also to replace a five year old firewall. I also wanted a better firewall to help fix my PS3 NAT type 3 error. (My current firewall is not supportive of port forwarding, UPnP or DMZ configurations). Anyway, please stay away from this thing! I am shipping it back to Newegg tomorrow!!!!!

2 out of 5 eggsNice... but has shortcomings

Pros: Ease of setup, size/power consumption, gig ports. A few clicks and you are up and running. Of course it takes some time to get it totally configured, but out of the box the security is good.

Cons: There is no way to reserve DHCP addresses. If you have devices that need specific ports open... now you will have to set static ip's or open your whole dhcp range to those ports, or configure the ACL to only open those ports from specific IP's. I do this stuff at work and want to keep home stuff simple. This unit replaced an aging linksys RV0041.. and even that had DHCP reservations.

This router has only been up about 3 days. I have already had to do a reset. It simply would not connect to my cable modem. I reconnected my old router and away it went. No go on the zyxel until I reset it to factory defaults (and I hadn't backed up the config at that point).... so we will see if this is a reoccuring thing.

Other Thoughts: Maybe this will be fixed in a future firmware update... but finding where zyxel keeps their firmware updates is a task in itself. I am wondering if there is any development in that regard.

My linksys RV0041 used more power, had proprietary cooling fans that were getting loud... but I am thinking I should have just stuck with that until it died outright.

5 out of 5 eggsgood VPN router

Pros: easy to setup, good VPN throughput

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I just purchased this new zyxel router to replace a VPN router in one of my customer's home office. Its VPN throughput is pretty amazing, considering its price, and with GbE ports.  The setup is much easier than other VPN routers I installed before. It also provides discounts for Bitdefender software.  So far, my customer is pretty satisfied with this router.  It's a good buy.
