    if you can point me to a better router with the same specs and the same or cheaper it would be great. I need to find something for our offices and need it here by thursday at least but no later than friday.

    The WRVS4400N is a specialty Router that include aspects that are nor common in less expensive end-User Wireless Routers (like VPN and RADIUS).

    You have to specify what are the specific needs of your office if you want a credible answer.

    Some features can be achieved by using a sub $100 Wireless Router that is flashed with DD-WRT. However you have to be savvy in this issue in order to do what is needed.

    I think it just needs VPN capabilities. Just networking 2 small offices together. I have no idea what type of special capabilities this might have that we need or dont need.

    I'm not trying to be funny, but if you don't know what the needs are why are you sourcing the router?

    Then I would say.

    Option 1. Spend sometime and learn the issues, then (if needed) come wit a specific question.

    Option 2. Buy a more expensive device like the Juniper to cover security and VPN, and add to it Access Points to get Wireless.

    It will be more expensive, but that is the usual fate of ignorance, it costs more. :eek:
