Heavy-duty Security
More than just a simple NAT router, the ProSafe FVG318 SPI firewall provides business-class protection, blocking unwanted users from accessing the network. Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 Enterprise (WPA2) shields wireless communication with the highest available level of industry-standard encryption and authentication. Comprehensive controls block or filter unwanted addresses, services, protocols, and URLs, fortifying your network. Up to eight simultaneous IPsec VPN security association connections protect links between business locations, encrypting all traffic as it traverses the Internet – perfect for telecommuters and remote offices. It is VPNC compliant.

Easy Usability 
The FVG318 is easy to set up and use, with intuitive Smart Wizards™ that help connect to your ISP and establish VPN connections. SNMP support provides complete remote administration--perfect for corporate teleworkers, remote offices, and small businesses that can take advantage of centralized administration. Dynamic DNS capabilities facilitate remote access, cameras, games, and other hosted services for users with dynamic IP addresses.

The FVG318 works as the foundation for a small network, or integrated into a large one. Support for DHCP (client and server) and PPPoE facilitates widespread deployment. It is optimized for NETGEAR’s ProSafe VPN Client Software VPN01L and VPN05L (single and 5-user license) and ProSafe Network Management Software NMS100. Compatible with other SNMP management applications, it also supports Windows®, Macintosh®, UNIX®, and Linux®, or any other TCP/IP based platforms.
