I want a DSL firewall/router with WiFi, 4 Ethernet ports, and in-router VPN for having a permanent connection to my work (so I can run an IP phone and whatnot).
So, the Linksys WRV200 and WRV54G seem to be the way to go, but there's a 2x price difference, $70 versus $140.
But the only differences I see are:
-- 10 VPN sessions versus 50
-- WRV200 calls them "QuickVPN" versus VPN
-- Different packaging
-- WRV200 has 2 antennas instead of 1.
-- WRV200 has RangeBooster, but the more expensive WRV54G does not.
Those don't seem to justify the 2x price difference (especially since the cheaper one has RangeBooster and 2 antennas), so I feel I'm missing something.
Can they both act as VPN servers? It's clear that the WRV54G can, but not clear for the other.
What is QuickVPN versus normal VPN?
Do they essentially run the same Linksys firmware -- not the exact same version, but do they both have the same Linksys interface that most of their products do?
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
