    I just want to inform you that I gave the WRV200 back to the reseller. This info will probably not help to anybody, but repeating this sentence pushes my blood pressure to normal...
    In the good will I bought this piece of crap several days ago. Restart after each tab, chokes because of P2P traffic, VPN tunnel established only using Quick VPN... Never more.

    So guys, I'd like to ask for your opinions.
    I need STABLE (set-up and forget) router with 1xWAN/4XLAN, WiFi is a plus, WOL ability from web administration interface (https is a plus), durable against FTP and P2P traffic, VPN pass-through (a must, endpoint is a plus) in price about $130

    My friend told me the OvisLink WT-2000R works well for him, but I'm not sure - it's very cheap.

    Thank you

    I'd use a WRTSL54GS or WRT54GL with Tomato firmware.

    Thank you Toxic,
    that WRT54GL souds fine, but I have the quuestion.
    I'm the Wintel platform administrator, so I have just the basic linux knowledge. I don't want start the flamewar "What the Windows can do, the Linux can do better." But... Linux also has security holes and needs to be patched. I'm facing to the questions:
    How bulletproof is linux in these routers?
    Because they're sold worldwide and used in many applications it is worth for hackers to identify the security risks. On the other side, boxes with some proprietary firmware are harder to hack.

    Isn't it better to use not linux based box?
