ProSafe WirelessN firewall

NetGear has unveiled the SXRN3205 ProSafe Wireless-N Virtual Private Network (VPN) firewall, which the company claims is the first to combine dual band 5.0/2.4GHz Wireless-N with SSL and IPsec VPN. The product is designed for small businesses that require increased wireless performance and high security. The company has integrated its Dual WAN Gigabit SSL VPN firewall with a dual-band Wireless-N access point, which is also backwards compatible with 802.11g on the 2.4GHz band.

The platform supports up to five Secure Socket Layer tunnels and five IP Security tunnels simultaneously, offering secure remote connections for 25 user applications. The SSL tunnels allow remote access to data without needing to install a software client, and offer automatic cache cleanup after a session has ended.

IPsec tunnels connect site-to-site offices and offer legacy, client-based remote access. The Firewall features denial-of-service (DoS) attack protection, stateful packet inspection (SPI), URL keyword filtering, SYSLOG support, and e-mail reporting.

Dual band support will keep offices connected through equipment transition from the older 802.11g/b standard to Wireless-N, which is claimed to offer up to fifteen times the speed and ten times the coverage area. The SXRN3205 ProSafe Wireless-N firewall is available now for a suggested price of $485.

    Reliability

    The only problem is my fear of NetGear reliability. I had two of same model of routers from them go bad within 6 months.
