The Linksys RV082 is an advanced 8-port VPN router for handling the network needs of a small business. A step up from the RV042, the Linksys RV082 offers a superior Virtual Private Network (VPN) that allows up to 50 (versus 30) remote users to securely connect from faraway locations. In addition, the RV082 lets the user connect a second Internet line as a backup to ensure a permanent and non-disturbed connection. Much like its predecessor, the RV082 can serve as a DHCP server, and also includes a powerful SPI firewall to protect users from intruders and hacker attacks. Additional features of the Linksys RV082 VPN router include user-access filtering, IP filtering, and web-based router configurations. The Linksys RV082 retails for $259.99 and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.
