Low end of the low end
 
Having been a network engineer for nearly two decades, I've configured everything from high end Cisco routers to Linksys routers. In this particular case, I bought two of these to replace two Linksys routers in order to establish a stable VPN connection. There were numerous problems with these two routers. As a result, I consider these the low end of the low end.First, I had to contact support to download a beta version of the firmware to get the dynamic IP addresses to be resolve...

Unreliable router
 
Though I feel that this vpn firewall has alot of great features for its price range, the underlying issue with my internet connection constantly dropping made this a bad buy. I had purchased this vpn firewall to work together with my linksys wireless router (this can be easily done by disabling the DHCP on the wireless router) so that I would have a strong firewall denying untrusted external requests. The issue I ran into within the first day was that I constantly had internet connection drops (...

Worked the way expected.
 
Installed at a client to build tunnel from his home to his office ( to connect to Linksys R0V81 VPN router.) Was very easy to configure and very stable in operation. I am going to buy more for other clients too. Highly recommended.

revised review
 
This is the second FVS114 that I've purchased; the first one has been running solid for at least a year. I purchased a second one to create a 'safe' zone for my wireless networks (on the inside of one firewall and outside of the other). I now have a 'protected' zone inside the second FVS114 firewall. The WAN exposed FVS114 is connected to two 4-port switches and a total of 7 devices (not counting the switches).The FVS114 handles VoIP, Xbox Live, wireless network connectivity and e...

low rating is deserved
 
I own 2 of these, different geographic locations, different isp's, different local attached devices. Both seemingly randomly hang and require a power off/on to return to normal operation. This issue is widely recognized as evidenced here. I believe the reason there are some higher rated reviews is that they occurred during the first release of the firmware. The subsequent 2 releases have both manifested the "freeze" problem. I can not see any indication that Netgear is addressing the proble...

Great Netgear support providing new beta firmware
 
Update June 2009:I found Netgear has a new release firmware 1.1_15 on their support site. Upgrade firmware is smooth, all configuration kept. After that, all the problems are gone. It runs very stable, even with serveral people beating it really hard with a lot of traffic through it.Under the firewall log, I can see a lot of hackers trying to scan my IP address/ports and being dropped :-)With the VPN, we can have filesharing, printer sharing, VOIP all through ...

Unreliable product and unresponsive customer service
 
After less than one week of use, I am forced to return this product due to its inability to maintain a reliable network connection. In 5 days, I have had to cycle power on this unit, on average, more than once per day after it locks up. The Web UI fails to respond to connection requests, it loses the ability to communicate with the internet and the only solution is to cycle power. I have tried to work with NetGear technical support, but their suggestions (e.g., lower MTU) have been useless an...

Unreliable - Requires frequent reboots
 
After just one week of use and installing the newest firmware, this router began showing sickly signs requiring a daily reboot. By week two it began needing to be rebooted every 15 minutes. This now seems typical of previous experiences I have had with other Netgear products. So much for plug and play.My recommmendation: leave Netgear to the passive routers and use another brand for firewalls and DHCP serving.

Good Firewall
 
I really like this new firewall from Netgear. Firstly, it is a hardware one and I used to primarily use software firewalls, so it is a nice change. The size of this firewall is quite compact compared to other ones I have seen (and used). It was fast to set up and also didn't really cost all that much. I have tried various firewall tests on the internet, and it passed through them with very positive results. So, I would recommend this firewall for your network or home computer.
