Product Description

From Digital Living Today

With the advent of broadband comes new user needs. Ranking high among them is the desire to share the IP address provided by your ISP among several users on a network. With broadband you're connected all the time, so another concern is a network security firewall that prevents hackers from gaining access to your files. SMC's Barricade is a top-quality router that addresses all these issues in one product. First and foremost, the Barricade allows up to 253 machines to share one IP address regardless of platform. Both PCs and Macs can be connected, running MacOS, Linux or Windows. Second, the Barricade is a first-rate firewall that doesn't allow anything to be shared with the outside world, unless it's directed to do so. To top it off, the barricade comes with a built-in print server which allows all machines on the network to share a remote printer. Whereas many routers are difficult to set up, the Barricade is configured automatically through an online configuration server, making it virtually plug-and-play. For quality, ease of use, and features, SMC's Barricade is the router/firewall of choice.

From the Manufacturer

The Barricade is an ideal all-in-one networking solution for home and small-business users. This protocol-independent multifunctional broadband router is combined with a four-port 10/100 Mbps dual-speed switch, and incorporates both a built-in print server and an Internet firewall for security against unauthorized users.

The Barricade provides a WAN port as well as Network Address Translation (NAT), which extends simultaneous Internet access for up to 253 PCs on the LAN. The new broadband router also allows the connection of multiple users to the Internet using a single WAN/IP address. LAN and IP addresses are auto-assigned and easily managed, and the IP routing supports a range of popular applications.

This new device is a complete networking solution for PC or Mac users, and is backed by SMC's limited lifetime warranty and 24/7 technical support.

I bought this unit instead of the less expensive competition because of my faith in SMC support. I have literally called up SMC's 800 number at 11:30 PM on a Sunday and had a friendly, knowledgable technician answer the phone and guide me through a network card install. I didn't need their support.
I know networking, but the little book was written for the brain damaged. Really easy to understand. The connection through to the unit was instant. I just used winipcfg to do a DHCP release and renew and there I was. I have Home.com cable. I just added the computer's ID for my home.com connection in the appropriate field, saved and rebooted. Voila, instant shared network on three computers.
Besides the two free Cat 5 cables, the print server feature is quite nice. I haven't used it yet, but I intend to. Also I'll probably add a dial up modem to the unit so I can have an easy fallback if home.com has an outage.

I got this for the office after using the linksys at home, the idea of a router was fixed in my head. The print server and the serial port were almost necessities for the office environment. It was a fairly easy installation hardware wise, of course. the Software had a few issues but upgrades from their web site and a quick call fixed them, I found tech support to be helpful and patient. Theproblem involved needing to do a hard reset of the router, which is a pain, use a paperclip and jump two of the pins on the serial port. I could not believe that this was their answer, but it worked. Since then I have had a few months of no problem connections. I just wish they would implement a fax sharing program into the unit or even a modem sharing for other than Internet connectivity. I still giv eht eunit 5 stars for the print server and the ability to use the dial up if my DSL goes down (too frequently).

This port works great for networking computers! I have AT&T broadband and my cable modem is connected through a USB port on my computer instead of a network card. The hub had no trouble recognizing the connection, or the connection of the laptop computer in the other port (which used a normal PCMIA network card). This is a great device for networking beginners. Only a couple of things stopped me from giving this product five stars. First, when buying this, make SURE that your printer has available networking software (my old Epson 480 printer could not be networked to this device, software did not allow for that) if you want to network your printer. Also, some printer cables will not function with this device...make sure you have a cable that will function as a direct cable connection between your printer and this hub. Another thing I was told by AT&T support was that I needed a "crossover" network cable to connect the USB port to the hub. WRONG! Its correct to use a regular patch cable for all connections, as I found out through SMC support. Keep all this in mind and it will set up correctly and work just fine. Great for the price!

Got this thing for a pretty good price, now it's even cheaper. Bought it for a Mac network in my house, running enet cable through the walls to the bedrooms. Works great for @Home Cable modem, which is what I am running. Don't follow the directions in the manual, just put in all your ISP settings in the config. panel and set all your other computers connected to the router to DHCP. Worked great for me. Only compaint is that the 4 ports are on the front, so cables are going in both front and back, which makes it akward to sit on a desktop. Other than that, it does the trick.

Verified Purchase
This is a great router. I have been using the 4-port Linksys and I was very hesitant about buying this router. I was not having any problems with my Linksys so you can tell why I was apprehensive. There were two things that attracted me to the SMC, one: Great Price-after rebate, it was like stealing! two: Built-in print server. I had the whole thing set up in my SOHO, network printer included, within 10 minutes! No problems. No glitches. So far, the speed is as fast if not faster than the Linksys and the print server is awesome! I did not need to buy an extra piece of hardware and it saved me from using an extra plug in my APC UPS!--You know how valuable outlet space is on those power strips esepecially if you live in CA like me. I have not tested it with the advanced features but if the future performance is indicative of how it is now, I'm not worried. I recommend anyone interested in internet sharing and SOHO networking, to buy this router.

Just wanted to make three points about this great product:
1) Setting it up consists of filling out web-based forms from your favorite browser -- so if you can order this product from Amazon, then you already know how to set it up when you get it home!
2) It increased my cable modem performance! This won't happen to everybody, but for me I think the reason was that I previously had the cable modem connection going through a USB adapter (I have @Home in SF Bay area). When I got rid of the USB adapter, performance went from a maximum download speed of 300KBps (that's kiloBYTES), to 450KBps! Sweet!
3) You can hook up a dial-up modem as a backup. This is handy, because you don't have to muck with your computer network settings whatsoever. Usually when you switch ISPs you have to do said-mucking.
All in all a very nice product.
