Don't blame Netgear for Microsoft's problems

by JP Morgan on 7/25/2005

I've been using this firewall for over a year without any problems. The previous review mentions compatibility issues with the Microsoft VPN client. I would like to point out that this is Microsoft's problem for not using standards, not Netgear's. The VPN features work wonderfully with other Netgear routers, as well as Nokia & Cisco. I have been using the same tunnel between this FVL328 and a Nokia IP330 for almost 6 months without a single problem.

Product Overview

100 VPN Tunnels for Encrypted Remote Access:
Drive down the total cost of your network with NETGEAR's FVL328 ProSafe High-Speed VPN Firewall. For little more than the price of a typical NAT router, you get a completely equipped high-performance, broadband-capable Virtual Private Network (VPN) firewall. A low cost device that's high on security, this true firewall provides Denial of Service (DoS) protection and Intrusion Detection using Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), URL access and content filtering, logging, reporting, and real-time alerts. It initiates up to 100 IPSec VPN tunnels simultaneously, reducing your operating costs and maximizing the security of your network. With 8 auto-sensing, Auto Uplink switched LAN ports and Network Address Translation (NAT) routing, up to 253 users can access your broadband connection at the same time.
