Hardware reviews wanted: Netgear ProSafe FVS318G Firewall and Dell PowerConnect 2824 switch
Posted on 2010-08-23
I am ordering some networking gear for a business who will have an SBS2008 installation in place with 5 clients and now exchange (will grow into that role). One of the folks who speced out a budget for the project identified a firewall for the Perimeter defense and for VPN capabilities. I would like some opinions on the model and also possible replacements. I am handing over the maintenance of this network and will need a router/firewall that does VPN but can be managed via a GUI. The model in question is: Netgear ProSafe FVS318G, ALso need an unmanaged switch with 24 port minimum and wanted opinions on the Dell PowerConnect 2824 switch.
