Very flaky, constantly failing, avoid9/12/2012 9:19:20 AM

Pros: When it works, it work well; VPN connects quickly and have decent (but not great) throughput. Menus are easy to understand, and the internal gigabit switch is nice.

Cons: I continually have to reboot the router because it just decides it doesn't want to work anymore. Sometimes it stays up for a couple of days, other times it goes down within a few hours. Tried flashing the firmware multiple times, with no success to solving the problems. When the IPS is turned on, it goes down even faster. Overall bandwidth degrades over time, which makes me think there is something wonky in how the device handles packets. I admit that I am using this on a Class B subnet (172.16.x.x), and that might possibly be a problem, but I would expect a routing device to be able to handle NAT on something other than the 192.168.1.x default subnet.

Overall Review: I should have returned it, but I didn't in time, so now I'm stuck with hardware that is highly defective.
