I bought this router to use in my new house and opted for my firewall, switch and access point to be separate as I'm planning something more complex which his PoE. This is brand new and still sealed. The feature I like is the remote access to grant/deny internet to any device connected to this router and also the VPN server allowing to access a machine on your local network remotely and securely.
This shouldn't detract from how good this product is. A friend of mine uses this for his 1 Gb internet connection from Virgin Media (putting the VM box in modem mode) and the difference was staggering.I do honestly say to always replace your ISP router where possible, the benefit of controllability and flexibility far extends what you need.
