I am thinking of getting a vpn router at newegg, the one here-
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=33-124-160&depa=0

Its for our new home and I want to know if I will be able to put a cable modem right in there and also, 2 switches. Now my question is will there be a speed problem or security problem. I was wondering because the 30 dollars switch im looking at is just a plain switch and the linksys vpn router has a nat firewall and all those great security features. Will I get the same security as if i had my computers directly connected instead of through another router?

Thanks
Danny

Also, Whats the difference between this one:

or this

Yes.

I would go with the first Linksys you have listed since it has built in hardware encryption (DES and 3DES Encryption for IPSec VPN Tunnel). I wouldn't recommend Netgear to anyone but that's just me.

My set up will be as follows: I want to know where my secreulity flasws woudl be, if any? By the way this is a pretty big house, and the main router is located in the basement. And alos i have decided to go with the 8 port

Main router with 4 ports---
1- goes to vonage adapter
2- goes to wireless g access point (main floor)
3- goes to wireless g access point (2nd floor)
4-goes to 8 port switch (generic) main floor
5-goes to 8 port switch (generic) 2nd floor
6-goes to 8 port switch (generic) Basement
7- Nettwork attached storage
8- Empty

8 port switch (generic) 2nd floor--
ports 1-6 - bedrooms and loft (only about 3 of them will be used all the time)

8 port switch (generic) main floor--
ports 1-6 - rooms, study, family room, office, printer (only about 3 of them will be used all the time)

goes to 8 port switch (generic) Basement--
ports 1-5 - exercise room, home theater pc, rec room, etc (only about 2 of them will be used all the time)

Overall whast my best solution, in terms of equipment wiring and routing?

Thanks
Danny
