SMC Barricade Plus Cable/DSL Broadband router Review

VPN version of popular Barricade router with SPI based firewall and PPTP / IPsec VPN endpoint, but no printserver or dialup WAN support.Will probably do better with PPTP vs. IPsec-based VPNs

Linksys BEFVP41 EtherFast Cable/DSL VPN Router

The past few months have seen a number of introductions of consumer priced routers with built-in VPN Endpoints. Although this kind of product has been around for awhile, they've tended to be pretty expensive ($500 and up) and out of the range of most folks (unless their company was footing the bill!). So how can a company come along and do the same thing for under $150? Well, that's what I wondered, too, so I took a pair of Linksys BEFVP41's into the lab and had at 'em. You can see how they did in the resulting review.
