Pros Firewall, Filtering Ports, Automatic Vonage Upgrades for firmware, with cable all you have to do is connect the phone lines and is instanly working, A novice user can operate the router, etc. etc
Cons you can't install the firmware on your own, no protection against DoS Attacks
Summary This router is really good. You can run home servers on this router uch as HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, or even HTTPS. The problems are we all need some type of protection against Denial-Of-Service Attacks, and you are not allowed to manually download the firmware to the router. This does make a good choice to have a firewall against hackers, have great quality phone service through vonage, and get free automatic firmware updates.
