Best router and firewall for the money
I have had several wireless routers over the years, made by major manufactures. They are essentially a switch, a WIFI AP and a router all in one item. This cost saving produces routers which are at best limited not to mention unreliable. As my network grows, I added switches, networked printers, NAS devices, wired and wireless computers so I bought this Zyxell 2 Plus for increased security and function. In addition I like to have the flexibility to couple this router with future changes in Wifi technology such as 802.11N products and not be locked in with a very flimsy router. The learning curve of this device was rather stiff, but I enjoyed every minute of it. The firmware is mature and the hardware is very reliable. It has flexibility and function I probably will not be using but it's there. Of course it offers VPN and DMZ and WAN and LAN configurations in any form or shape you would ever want. The PDF manual is about 678 pages. There is a quick set up booklet shipped with the device. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
