The FVS336Gv2 ProSafe Dual WAN Gigabit Firewall Router with SSL and IPsec VPN from Netgear is an excellent way to securely connect remote users or remote LAN sites to your network and to distribute broadband Internet access within your network. This router offers two types of virtual private network (VPN) tunnels, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and IP security (IPsec), for optimal secure connection to your network. SSL VPN tunnels provide remote access to your corporate data for individual users anywhere and anytime without client-based software while IPsec VPN tunnels provide both secure site-to-site tunnels and legacy support for client-based remote access.
Beyond VPN capabilities, the router features dual WAN Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports for establishing a wired connection to your broadband Ethernet-enabled modem. With two WAN ports, you have the option of setting up your broadband connection as either a load-balancing or fail-over configuration. The router also features a total of four very speedy LAN Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports for establishing high-speed wired connections to servers, Wireless-N access points, desktop PCs, and anything else that's Ethernet-enabled on your LAN network. With Network Address Translation (NAT) routing and classical routing, up to 253 users can access your broadband connection at the same time. This router is easy to setup and features numerous advanced security options. It is compatible with Linux, Unix, Windows, and Mac operating systems.
