    VPN Router recommendations

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking into purchasing a new router for a small office network (35 users). This router is going to have to handle multiple VPN connections as well as remote applications. We're looking at up to 30 remote users.

    I've been looking at these:


    D-Link DFL-200 10/100Mbps VPN Firewall

    NETGEAR FVS124GNA 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit VPN Firewall 25 with 4-port Gigabit LAN and Dual WAN Port Switch

    NETGEAR ProSafe FVL328 10/100Mbps VPN Firewall

    I really wish I could go Cisco, but they are just so expensive. I think the max I can go on this is about $220.00

    Hey Hey,

    I bet someone can guess what I'm going to say..

    Linksys WRT54G with the Talisman Firmware

    Specifically the VPN version

    Talisman - VPN

    The VPN build includes a PPTP and IPSec server in addition to the core feature sets. This version is designed for high-security installations where the router itself is a highly secure endpoint and gateway to the internal network.

    I am using the Netgear 318 VPN firewall. I have had it about 1 year with no issues. My only complaint is that the Internet port is only 10MB Half. That is not a problem with the version you are looking at. The only other issue is the support is lees than impressive but, lately I have not been impressed with a lot of vendor support.

    Get an 800 series (either a 837 for a adsl line or 828 for a gshdsl line)

    Go hunting on ebay for one, I managed to pickup a few for testing, they are generally in good condition and only once or twice have I had to reload a new IOS system onto them.

    The only problem then is creating the config for it, but there are plenty of people around to help

    As a very cheap option I previously used Zyxel routers to create IPSEC VPN's between very small branches, they are also reasonable Internet facing firewalls.....
