Top customer reviews
I contacted tech support about having to reboot every day even after updating the firmware. Tech support was great. Very friendly. They recommend that after you do a firmware update that you should do a factory reset. I did a factory reset and now the firewall works perfectly. No longer locks up daily and no rebooting needed. Everyone having issues I recommend loading the latest firmware and then do a factory reset. You can save your settings with the built in backup utility and put them back after you are done.
UPDATE AGAIN. it sucks. Has to be restarted at least once a day. Have the latest firmware. It seems to not be able to handle heavy loads or attacks. It just gives up. Sad. I really liked my old Netgear firewal... Too bad I gave it away before I realized how bad this one sucks. Might look at a Trendnet router instead.
Update update update. I went with a Ubiquiti Edgerouter Lite ERLITE-3 router and I love it! It works great. Super fast. The web interface is snappy. feature packed. And it has been up a whole week without having to reboot it. It gets fantastic reviews. And it is less than half the cost of the netgear. Netgear does make mostly good stuff. I just bought a new Netgear 16 port gigabit switch that I am happy with. This router is just a bad device. I guess you can't win them all.
Being a previous Netgear firewall owner, and being extremely happy with the FVS338 I have had for almost seven years, I never gave a thought to reading the review of the FVS318G. That as a BIG mistake.
I own a Netgear FVS338 firewall which I've had for just under seven years. It's been great. Easy to set up and reliable. But it's LAN-to-WAN throughput is only 90 Mbps. This was fine when I bought it and my Internet connection was just 25 Mbps. Comcast later doubled that to 50 Mbps (for free, no less!) and later Comcast doubled it again to 100 Mbps (again, for free!). I couldn't take advantage of my full Internet connection speed, but 90 Mbps was close enough to 100 Mbps and I was happy.
Recently I upgraded my Comcast service, which doubled my Internet speed to 200 Mbps. As an aside, the upgrade gave me 40+ more channels and doubled my Internet speed, all for $20 a month LESS than I'd been paying! So it was time for a firewall with a higher LAN-to-WAN throughput.
Having had such a great experience with my Netgear FVS338, naturally I went back to see what they had to offer. This FVS318G has a LAN-to-WAN throughput of 250 Mbps. It did everything the FVS338 did, so I ordered one. But I was to be greatly disappointed.
Before ever connecting the FVS318G to the Internet, I connected it to my PC and changed the default admin password from "password" to a string of 32 random letters and numbers. Believe it or now, you cannot use special characters in passwords with the FVS318G. At least not the hyphen and the exclamation point. I gave up guessing after that.
After changing the password, I was unable to log in. It said my password was invalid. It can't be. I did a copy and paste when I changed it and copied and pasted the same password when I logged in. I had to do a hard reset back to the factory default setting. And, BTW, the reference manual does not match the device! That made for lots of fun trying to figure out how to reset the FVS318G, but I got it done.
This time I used the 20 character string of random letters and number for the admin password and that worked. I was able to log in using that password. The FVS338 will apparently not accept a password of 32 characters. But no error message was displayed. It just happily accepted my too long password.
I only had to make a few minor configuration changes and I was ready to swap out my old FVS338 for my new FVS318G. A quick check with speedtest.net showed I was getting 135 Mbps download from one site. Other test sites varied from 50 to 80 Mbps. That's certainly expected since you never know what traffic there is between you and any given test site.
All seemed well. That feeling didn't last long. After about ten minutes I was unable to reach any Web site. We have three computers in the house and all three had the same problem. I power cycled the FVS318G and that corrected the problem. But about ten minutes later the same thing happened. Another power cycle and we're back in business. Ten minutes later, the same thing happened.
That's it. Back in the box and back to Amazon. My trusty FVS338 is back in service.
The FVS318G was only $103. I thought that was a great price, but I guess you get what you pay for. So I'll be shopping for a new brand of firewall.
