Very classy semi-pro router
 
I bought the Zywall 5 with the accelerator card (200+ bucks more and it takes up the wi-fi card slot) as I wanted a more reliable router with extra features (intrusion detection, spam filtering) than your average basic SOHO router. Little known fact, most of the Linksys, D-Link and Netgear 89 - 130 dollar multi-port routers usually have a 133Mhz level specialized "appliance" CPU (usually AMD). And they are fine for what they are but, in reading the forums they tend to burn out after 3 years. ...

The BEST small company corporate router I could find
 
I do IT support for a small company - under 50 employees.We have used routers from Cisco, Sonicwall, Netgear, DLink, and linux-based solutions.We settled on the Zywall routers because:1) The content filter is inexpensive and reliable.2) The VPN is rock solid reliable and easy to configure across multiple router brands.3) It has an intuitive set of screens to configure everything plus an underlying Command Line Interface if you need to l...

Highly Capable VPN Server, but Difficult to Set Up
 
I purchased a Zywall 5 VPN server to replace an older Linux Freeswan solution. It took about a month to set up in my corporate environment, which likely differs greatly from the Zywall's intended configuration.The Zywall 5 assumes that it is the default gateway to the Internet, and thus lacks the capability of answering ARP requests for its connected VPN clients (which are configured with virtual IP addresses in the same subnet as the LAN). The Linux Freeswan solution could be conf...

Not too bad for a newbie
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) I'm very computer literate but no IT guru. That said the Zywall 5 is a great choice for entrepreneurs and small business managers that don't have time to take classes on Firewall technologies and implementation. While the manual was very easy to read it was far too stripped down to get things running properly for the layman.The good news was that the Zyxel Customer Support t...

Great Firewall
 
I have this type of firewall since 2002, and it is the best firewall that I have. I purchased this firewall because I was searching with transparent mode capability.

Zywall5 two thumbs up
 
The Zywall5 is a nice FW for the price.Amazon had the best price at the time and it was shipped quickly. PROS: The three systems I just setup are solid work-horse units. I mean they are also made of metal and aluminum as well. I like the GUI Interface, it is easy to get used to. The help screens popup in separate windows for easy printing or viewing. The interface has most of the great features you need to secure your network. VPN can be setup for strong encryption AES256. It ev...

Serious firewall.
 
There is no end to the bells and whistles in this firewall. And it is not for the light-hearted. I know enough to get by, but after working through all the configurations, I was a bit taken aback to encounter the "Advanced" option as if the rest wasn't advanced.I have not played with the VPN as of yet, so can't speak for it. As a whole the firewall is fast. (I'm easily running 25Mbs through it.) And I like the option to integrate in virus checking and other services, although th...

Never have had a problem!
 
I've had this item for nearly 2 years now. I searched for a good product because my Netgear router kept stopping while streaming Netflix.This has never skipped a beat and has worked flawlessly the whole time!
