    I already have a WRV200 and VPN works quite good with a Linksys BEFVP41. Now there is another location where I have to buy a new router and I wonder what is the optimal for it. I don't need a wireless access on the new location, so actually it is no need to have all the WRV200 options. But it has a good price.

    On the other hand, there is a RVS4000 with a built giga-switch which is also a good feature for small local network. Is RVS4000 stable enough to put it in a VPN-connection with WRV200 and - does RVS400 have all options as RVS200 has (except wireless) or are they different?

    Or are the RV042, RV0041 or perhaps RVL200 better choices and more stable for VPN networks?

    if you don't need wifi the wrv200 would work fine, as would a wrv54g. The RV series are also very stable.

    I personally run about 30-40 wrv54g, wrv200 and cisco 851/871 routers back to a pix without problem.

    As Kspare said, the wrv200 would work fine; you can just disable the wireless. The wrv54g would be a good choice also.

    However, if you're looking to speed up your internal Lan with 1000mbps, look at the wrvs4400n also. I use one on my internal lan and the data exchange is great. Another option would be either the wrv200, wrv54g and a gigabit switch.
