I'm looking for recommendations for a low end vpn router that will split tunnel so i can route internet traffic locally instead of through the vpn. I like the netgear FVS318v3, but i cant find in the documentation anything regarding split tunnelling....maybe they have just reworded it. I am also interested in the sonicwall TZ150, however it only supports 2 VPN's.. i only need 1 at the moment, but doesn't leave much room for growth.

I use to be a big Linksys fan, but havent had much luck out of them lately and the reviews for the VPN routers aren't all that great that i can find.

Here are the specs of what will be using the Site to site VPN,
main office: 4 computers to remote branch 2 computers.

So i dont need a high end router as the traffic wont be that great.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Almost all VPN's will allow split tunneling. With some it can be configured on the client but many others require it be configured on the router.

You mention you like the Netgear FVS318v3, a good router for the price. If you wish to enable split tunneling on it, you do so on the VPN client, the ProSafe client. To do so in the VPN client configuration on the "my identity" page under virtual adapter choose enable (or always - I don't have one available to check). Then save the configuration and reboot. After you reboot there should be a SafeNet Virtual adapter present under control panel | network connections. Right click on the Virtual adapter and choose properties | Networking | TCP/IP -properties | Advanced | General | un-check  "Use default gateway on remote network

It is not an issue with routers (site-to-site). You can assign whatever gateway and DNS servers you like, and access will be through that connection.
