    Comments about Netgear Netgear ProSafe 8 Wireless VPN/Firewall:

    It was a little complicated to set up. We had to call for product support. But I will say that we were setting this up to work with our IBM server. The tech thought that we had to send it back, however, my IT guy found it was something to so with the server which was not the fault of the tech support we received from NetGear.
