OK - I'll be honest. I have installed no less than 50 of these in the past year (the 4 port and 8 port versions). THIS IS THE SIMPLEST WAY TO FIREWALL YOUR HOME/SMALL OFFICE NETWORK FROM INTRUDERS and share your internet connection with all your computers. All software applications to achieve this fall seriously short in comparing to what this product can do. And the price is SO LOW at buy.com!!! If you were to buy a software firewall product - you'd spend nearly this much and miss on some other features that I don't have room to explain to you here.

I have been using the BEFSR81 for almost a year with great satisfaction - it did everything it is advertised to do and it did it well - till it went dark unexpectedly 2 days before the first anniversary of the purchase date. Limited warranty is one year fortunately, but I certainly am more concerned now with overall reliability...
