NETGEAR Cable/DSL Web Safe Router Gateway Review

Firewall and Filtering

The 614 has a NAT-based firewall, with features, again, similar to those of the the FVS318. I'll just run down the differences here - check the spec table to your right, or the [FVS318 review] if you want all the details:

Note that like the FVS318, there are no port filters, so you can't block, say, the ports needed for certain games or file-sharing services.

Update 10/1/02 - Port filtering added in 4.10 Sep 13 2002 firmware.
