    We are going to be purchasing an RV082 for a central office with 5 PCs and a VoIP phone system. Other users will be connecting from home via VPN. I'd like to purchase some Linksys VPN endpoints and create site-site VPN tunnels back to the RV082. Any suggestions would be welcomed. There will be about 9 remote users on home DSL/cable/Fios connections.
    I'm assuming I can set QoS on the RV082 to allow the VoIP to gain highest priority, will this work through the tunnels as well?

    For the DSL connections you could use Linksys AG241's and for the cable users you've got the choice of WRV54G, WRV200, RVL200, RVS4000 and WRVS4400N :)

    Other 082 models....or to save some on the budget...042 models.
    Also the befsx41's....but I have a feeling they'll be phased out soon..been out for a looooong time.

    Hi there,

    You aren't specific if you want to set the end of the VPN tunnels for your remote users with the other routers.

    If your users are at home or alone on a remote location, in my opinion, there is no need to buy a Broadband Router with VPN termination capabilities; a router with VPN passthrough could be the option. In this case, you can use the QuickVPN client (If you are not using other OS than WinXP), configure the end point of the tunnel at the client side by define an IPSec policy on windows (2000, XP or Vista).

    My point is there is no need to spent money on a VPN router for the remotes unless there are more than 3 users on a single location.

    Hope this help.
