Draytek VPN Router. I wouldn't trade it for anything. The best piece of networking equipment I've ever used, and I've tried a lot of them. I forget who on here recommended Draytek, but I thank god they did. lol

Running pfsense http://www.pfsense.org/ 2.1 is current development release in a virtual machine

2.1-BETA0 (i386)
built on Fri Jul 27 15:20:57 EDT 2012
FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p3

VM - virtual machine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_machine

N40L - is a HP microsever, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16859107052 Got it lot cheaper than that current price. Updated its 2GB of ram it came with to 8GB, and also added a 2nd nic (it only has one built in). This was so could use router on VM, one interface connected to modem, second interface connected to my lan. This is done via virtual switches that you assign physical nics too.

Vsphere 5 - just then new name for ESXI, 5 is the current version - running 5.0.0 u1 (build 768111)

This allows me to take snapshots of my router before upgrade - easy rollback if something goes wrong, switch routers to something else on the fly, say different build of pfsense, or ipcop, m0n0wall, smoothwall, generic linux as router, etc. etc. Many Many advantages of running your router in VM.

Also allows me to reduce power consumption, less hardware - just one tiny box (n40l) and run my router and all my other VMs without having to have multiple boxes. Other VMs on the box act as my NAS, my linux shells, my test workstation OSes, Test Server OSes, etc. etc.

Hope that helps clear it up.

Opposite of what I've experienced! My Netgear has lasted me 6 years and the worst was the Linksys. My Linksys only lasted a week! Took it back for the Netgear 6 years ago!

My old Netgear RT314 from 1997 is still kicking. Just using it a a RIP router at this point though.

Also picked up 2 WNR3500L routers from Newegg (refurbed) to serve as range extenders :)

Netgear WNDR 3700

It died around the two years old. It started to drop WiFi connections needing a reboot and finally the wireless died completely. It now has a buzzing or squealing noise. LAN still works great.

I have a Linksys Wireless-N 400 dual-band. In and of itself it was the ********* router ever along with all the other crappy Linksys routers I've owned.

Then I installed DD-WRT on it and that thing is rock friggen solid now. It's amazing to login and see up-times pushing 90 days. With the default firmware I had constant reboots, and conflicting ip addresses on the network. DD-WRT FTW.
