Hit and Miss VPN Router
 
The VFG6005N is a mixed-bag. On the one hand, my internet speeds, wireless speeds, and wireless range increased when switching to the VFG6005N from a DIR-655. This router features a NAT "Hardware Accelerator," and while I do not have any hard data on performance with and without the accelerator, anecdotally, webpages are noticeably faster than on the DIR-655, which is a great router in and of itself. It was worth noting, however, that enabling bandwidth management or PPTP will disable the acc...

mediorcre range; easy web interface
 
I bought two Zyxel routers to setup both a site-to-site VPN between my regular office and my home office, and user VPN logins for two staff while they are on the road. As of September 2011, Zyxel has a problem with LT2P and IPsec in their firmware which they are fixing. The PPTP VPN works fine and was easy to setup.This router can produce two Wifi SSIDs, e.g., Workers and Guests. You can separate them so that Guests cannot see devices that have connected to workers *wirelessly*, b...

very nice firewall router
 
I've had the VFG6005N wireless firewall router working fine for more than 6 weeks now.The basic configuration works fine. Port forwarding works fine; I've confirmedvia nmap on Windows 7 that the DMZ works fine. I've contacted Zyxel twice by phoneand the support is good. I would have given the product 5 stars but I think thedocumentation could be better by explaining things more thoroughly and clearly -- but you canget the background info you need by googling the ...

Affordable, works great, though perhaps not for technically challenged.
 
For starters, I am a IT Consultant with over 15 years experience.I purchased 2 of these routers for a customer looking for an affordable wireless router that had Site to Site VPN capability. They replaced a more expensive but featured limited netgear model. I have been using ZyXEL WAPS a lot lately and they have been working great so I though I would give this unit a try and I wasn't disappointed.Install was simple, though the GUI isn't as polished as the latest netgear o...

Easy enough to setup and works just fine
 
At the time of this writing, reviews on this product were few and far between. I went ahead and gambled on the purchase. This unit has replaced an older USR8200 VPN router, a small Gigabit hub and a B/G WiFi access point. That was my intent, to replace 3 devices with one while upgrading to wireless n. The unit was easy enough to configure for someone that knows what they're after although I wouldn't call it a no brainer. After a few months of being up and running, the unit has proven stable...

GHivingh up on it
 
Got this to replace my linksyus *(cisco) because I didn't like having to use a proprietary client.When connected remotely to my vpn - my internet connection is nearly nul - there is no way to configure it to not use the remote dns so all internet traffic is routed thru the vpn, and it makes my home internet connection virtually useless.I have to connect, do work, disconnect, go back to other workBut I should add - I don't really have to disconnect because it d...

I like it.
 
I just received this router. It took about 30 minutes to program all of the settings that I needed including numerous port forwarding entries, a site to site IPsec VPN connection with an ancient router at my office, wireless settings, and static DHCP settings for several devices. This device seems to do about anything that I could possibly need. I think I will get another to replace my ancient router at the office. It also seems to be significantly faster than my old D-Link router - both wir...

Good small business router, but no IPSEC
 
Bought this as I wanted the ability to utilize vpn access to my home network. Many people use wifi hotspots like there safe at home browsing the internet, checking the bank, etc.. without realizing that you're on someone elses unsecure network! To compensate for this, I had been using a virtual server I setup on Amazon for free the first 12 months. When my free subscription expired, I looked for an alternative and finally settled on this router. It's pretty much a basic router such as you wo...

ZyXEL needs to fix their buggy firmware
 
This is such an innovative VPN router, with great throughput. I really like the hardware NAT accelleration. It can handle numerous simultaneous NAT sessions. With that said, the user interface regularly stops responding when there's even the slightest usage. Zyxel hasn't released any new firmware for this device. They don't seem interested in fixing it. Overall disappointed, as Zyxel used to be the way to go. Now I believe there are better options.
