Firmware on this box is buggy
 
It would be nice if it did what it said on the tin but we found that this box couldn't stay up for more than a week before hanging and requiring a power cycle to get going again. 3Com gave us a patch to fix the bug which totally wrecked the thing and took out the onboard webserver required to manage it. We're replacing it with something else. Do not buy this product.

Struggles to do the basics
 
I purchased several of these. All the basic functionality works, but the key word is 'sporadic'.Firmware updates sometimes fail, resetting fails ~30% of the time. VPN connections (IPSec) drop, and usually don't automatically come back up. The device slows down horribly with only a couple users running P2P. Significant errors in the log on a bi-weekly basis. No firmware updates since 2005, despite obvious problems.Do yourself a favor and avoid this brick.

Really good, but not Perfect.
 
This unit is working really well for us as a front door firewall on a bank of 20 computers. While it does eveything we need without fail, there was a bit of a learning curve due to the real lack of information about how to use it best. I do not want to knock this unit. 100% up time with no issues, even during installation. I just dont know if I am underutilizing or losing efficiencies, there is just not enough info around of people using this particular unit. It is a nice small package with eas...

Not so bad, works really well for its footprint
 
Small size and bangs out a lot of work for a tiny switch VPN unit. You will not find one at this price and size for what it does. If you units is buggy 3com with get you a replacement.

Great when its working
 
I will keep this basic. It does great with pptp. and ipsec. Internet speeds are fast, setup is easy and it has plenty of features. Every once in a while (sometimes a week sometimes 5) it drops the vpn tunnels and just basically shuts down and has to be restarted. On top of that, you have to restart is about 3 times. The alert light blinks and sometimes one restart isn't enough. We had a replacement sent from 3com, but the new one does the same thing just less frequently. We have 3 in 3 different...
