LINKSYS LRT214 Business Gigabit VPN Router
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Nice...when it works 01/23/2014

This review is from: LINKSYS LRT214 Business Gigabit VPN Router

Pros: Very nice web interface for an advanced router, great feature set at a good price

Cons: IPsec site-to-site (gateway-to-gateway) connections work for a little while and then completely disable the WAN connection until you reboot the device. I've tested this on an ISA 2006 setup as well as a TMG 2010 SP2 w/ Rollup 4 setup that is as up-to-date as it gets on an up-to-date Windows Server 2008 R2 server. When connecting the IPsec tunnel to either of these servers, it will crash the Linksys after a little while. The logs on the device show nothing, spoke with tech help either. This was previously working on a Cisco ASA tunnel. I even had the ISP update their hardware with the latest firmware and still no luck. The Linksys has firmware

Other Thoughts: Would be nice...if it worked properly.

TYAN S5510GM3NR Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1600
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great features for a mATX server mobo, sandy bridge, intel 82574L NIC's

Cons: Very picky about what PSU will work with it, just like the other reviews have said.

Other Thoughts: Wow...I cant believe that this mobo is so picky about the PSU for it to even post! Does not post (nothing comes on except LED6) with Corsiar TX550M, item# N82E16817139032. I should have bought the Supermicro board X9SCL+-F (basically the same but C202 chipset and a different BMC/iKVM chip, only one x4 PCIe slot). If you can find a PSU that works with this board, I'm sure it would be ok, but I wouldnt chance it.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Dual socket ATX form factor, Intel 82574L NIC's, iKVM. No clearance issues with CPU, memory, heatsinks. Every component has worked flawlessly for me so far!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Currently running ESXi 4.1 U1 on this board. All components of this board are supported by VMware. My server components are as follows:

1x Adaptec RAID 5405 Kit
1x Intel BXSTS100A Active heat sink
4 x Western Digital RE4 WD5003ABYX
1 x Kingston DataTraveler 102 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (ESXi install partitions)
1 x Intel Xeon E5620
1 x CORSAIR Professional Series HX650
3x Kingston KVR1333D3D4R9S/8GHB
