This router is so high-end, it boggles the imagination. It has Wireless-N, dual-band reception, a VPN server, and even Intrusion Protection (IP). Not to mention GIGABIT network speeds for the local network, and full backward compatibility for Wireless G (and way old â€œBâ€) connections.
My life will be so much easier after I get this router installed: I can retire the VPN function that my tired old Windows 2000 Server currently controls, and my VPN will be back-up and running again!
It will offer me future growth capability in two areas, I currently do not have Wireless-N clients yet, nor are any of my desktopâ€™s equipped with Gigabit Ethernet adapters, so whenever I wish to take advantage of those technologies, they are there waiting for me.
The big benefit for me will be Intrusion Protection (IP) feature, which is a step further than an SPI Firewall (Stateful Packet Inspection), which the unit also comes with as an Industry standard.
But itâ€™s the VPN that I will get the most use out of. I use VPN on almost a daily basis to link my laptop with my home network so I can access File Shares and FTP.
Iâ€™ll be reviewing this unit in the near future. Hopefully itâ€™ll get high-marksâ€¦
