We have very nice VPN for a very low price, but this router has many bugs.
First The QoS in this router is a joke. It`s not working as It suppose to work, maybe the port base QoS will work, I haven`t checked it yet, but the percent QoS is not working. Second the big problem is with stop working FTP,ICQ and few other protocols. With a non official firmware 1.34 we can do port triggering for example, we need to say that port 21 FTP is port 21 FTP, and then It starts to work, but this is not the way it should be. The GUI sometimes is not responding. We can see the white page, and that`s all. Of course, after restart everything is all right, but imagine, that this is our branch router, and we are for example 1000 miles from there and we have VPN connection(which is working very nice what I said before), and we need to change few things. GUI is not responding, and we have a big problem.
If you want just only VPN connection, it`s good, but if you want it for few other functions in your network, I can say that we can buy sth better for this price.

Hi everyone,
I have a big network setup using this router, working great!!
It is reliable (working for years without any problem)
Even qucik VPN is working nice (on Windows XP only, I have a problem with Vista).
You need to setup correctly for QOS to work, it's working for me.
