I have the Netgear Rangemax 240 Wireless Router. Two things I am having problems with this unit.1) DHCP is not working correctly - I can't get the DNS forwarding to work reliably. I think this is the problem. Using DHCP lately computers on my network seem to lose a connection to the internet quite often. I don't know if this is because I was using more than one PC on the network when the major problems started. It does seem to work better when only one PC is connected at a time but this is only a guess right now. I thought this was do to overheating of the router because even my wired pc lost a connection to the router. I am using comcast cable service. So maybe Comcast is the problem. Right now my Iphone will only connect if I use a Static DNS address. But my wired PC is using DHCP all the way with no problems this morning. 2) I want a router that I can enter exceptions in the Firewall/service blocking to allow only certain ports and to be able to block all other ports from 1-65534. This is not so easy on the Rangemax. I sort of can all up to 7 or 8 entries. Meaning I can leave open only 8 ports.
My brother need to connect to his office via a VPN connection so a good VPN Passthrough setup is a must. Good handling of DHCP and DNS forwarding, plus the Port exception rule as I stated above is a must also.
I think I will have to buy a wireless repeater to go along with this Router. I get very poor reception out in the living room.
Thanks in advance,
