OPEN VPN SERVER SUPPORT
Allows OpenVPN clients running on employees’ laptops, smartphones, and tablets to connect to the offices using two-factor authentication.

WAN FAILOVER
Supports WAN Failover, which allows a business to continue its network operation when one of its WAN connections to the Internet fails.

DUAL-WAN LOAD BALANCING
The dual-WAN VPN Router can aggregate the bandwidths of both WAN connections to achieve a higher Internet bandwidth than what a single WAN connection can provide.

INTEGRATED FIREWALL
Supports URL filtering and access rules that allow administrator to further regulate the traffic within the business network based on the services (i.e. TCP/UDP ports) and source/destination IP addresses.

802.1q (VLAN TAGGING)
Provides separation between resources in different SSIDs/VLANs. With inter-VLAN routing, the products allow specified traffic to traverse between VLANs.

INTUITIVE WEB ADMINISTRATIVE INTERFACE
Allows small business owners to deploy and manage the routers without professional IT staff onsite.
LINKSYS ROUTER LRT224 Dual WAN Gigabit VPN Router is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys LRT224 VPN Router I had the Linksys LRT224 VPN router from early 2014 to 12/23/2018 router stopped working on 12/23/2018. During these four years I had great service and will buy another Linksys LRT224 VPN router should be delivered on 12/29/2018 with a four-year protection plan. With an additional Linksys LRT224 VPN router as a backup. Just installed new router and later found out that the power supply fried. Used the new Linksys power supply and my out router works great and I also have extra power supplies that will work with my new and old Linksys LRT224 VPN router. New Linksys LRT224 VPN router will be used as a backup. I have an Arris SB8200 DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem with Comcast Internet service. I use the Arris SB8200 cable modem with dual WAN output to the Linksys LRT224 dual WAN input. Comcast in this area is only offering DOCSIS 3.0 service.My network is a peer to peer LAN network but will be getting a WINS server soon. Accessing PPTP VPN using LAN IP addresses all IP addresses are charted to access information. With the WINS server I will see server Icon names instead of IP addresses. WINS server not needed for gateway to gateway VPN connections.Improvements that are needed for IPV6. Using PPTP VPN from my laptop to my VPN server to my other home servers IPV6 packets will not pass through the VPN tunnel just IPV4 packets. Only IPV4 IP addresses can be used to create a VPN tunnel using PPTP or gateway to gateway networks.My buddies are telling me that Gateway to Gateway VPN passes IPV6 packets.Next generation Linksys LRT224 VPN routers should have 10 gigabit ethernet WAN and LAN ports and one USB 3.2 WAN port for 5G.Must be able to create VPN networks using IPV6 addresses and pass IPV6 packetsNAT bandwidth and IPV6 bandwidth should have 10 gigabits upstream and 10 gigabits downstream.VPN gateway to gateway bandwidth should have 2 gigabits upstream and 2 gigabits downstream.VPN PPTP bandwidth should have 200 megabits upstream and 200 megabits downstream.Comcast and other cable companies will be competing for customers against cellular operators using 5G such as AT&T, Sprint, Verizon soon for internet services. Cable companies and land line phone companies will no choice but to use FTTH (fiber to the home) and 5G technologies rather than DOCSIS 4.0. Comcast and other cable companies plus land line phone companies may offer discounts if the cable and land line phone companies can put 5G transceivers on customers roofs connected to their cable and land line phone company’s media converters. With 5G coming the difference between cable and land line phone companies will blur greatly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs daily rebooting to maintain speed Have had this a week now. Setup was easy and the interface is well designed. The problem I'm having is that everything works fine for a day or so then the router seems to get bogged down. You can see this in the web interface which goes very slowly, as well as slowdown in network throughput. Running a speedtest will normally show 100+ Mpbs. But when the router slows down it will only got to 10 Mpbs. After rebooting the system, the throughput and web interface speeds both return to normal - so this seems like a software glitch. I upgraded to the latest firmware version v1.0.6.04 but this didn't solve the problem. I have a wired network so it is not a wireless issue. In addition to that issue, load balancing does not seem to work that well, as applications will hang or slow down for no apparent reason when load balancing is turned on. I didn't really need this feature so I set it to failover mode instead of load balancing. Failover works fine. If you don't mind rebooting once every day or two, this is a good product. But I cannot recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very basic features, not stable This home segment product. Lack of basic features like who is doing what on your network.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from RADIUS missing For simple remoute access looks very fine. But In my opinion in VPN server is missing possibility:1. Disable user account. I must delete account when I need denny temporary remote access.2. Not possibble to user radiu server. It is nace to have possibility autoryze access by RADIUS server.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Big miss in config This is an excellent product, but it has a big flaw in design.I bought this since I have dual wan in my setup, loadbalancing is prio one at that is excellent. The second most important feature since I have two external (white IP-addresses) is to be able to have two separate servers on inside (black IP's). But that is not an option in this model (lates FW feb-16 atleast). All port forwards or port translations is same on both WAN-ports. If i forward port 80 it will redirect to same black IP regardless which white IP is accessed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Setup is a Breeze Device is simple and straightforward to use. Router includes second WAN port for internet failover if needed. Initial configuration was quick and easy to setup, device is zippy and responsive. Firewall access rule creation was simple and did not require wizard. Device includes multiple VPN configurations including EasyLink VPN, OpenVPN, site-to-site VPN, and client-to-gateway VPN, and PPTP.
