Recommendation for best small business VPN router

Last Modified: 2013-11-29
Hi Experts,

I have a client who wants a robust VPN solution for their small business.  I have tried to use a Linksys RVS4000 and it is not reliable.  After a firmware upgrade and using the latest QuickVPN software and obtaining a static IP on the WAN side of the office, the RVS4000 does not allow me to see the remote network, after disconnect the router needs a reboot in order to connect again.  VNC works sometimes and others does not.  Reviews on this router suggest dismal VPN service.  

What I need is something relaible for one user to come through to the end point and see his network and not have to reboot the router every time you disconnect.  What I mean by see his network, network browsing by host name even if we have to map netbios hosts to IP's in his host file.  The price range is below 400.00, but we don't want to spend that much if a less expensive unit will suffice.
