    Lightbulb Cisco RV042 4-Port Load Balancer w/ VPN Endpoint

    The Cisco SB RV042 10/100 4-Port VPN Router is an advanced Internet-sharing network solution for your small business needs. Like any router, it lets multiple computers in your office share an Internet connection. But the unique dual Internet ports on the 10/100 4-Port VPN Router let you connect a second Internet line as a backup to insure that you're never disconnected. Or, use both Internet ports at the same time, and let the router balance your office's requirements between them for maximum bandwidth efficiency.
    The Cisco SB RV042 10/100 4-Port VPN Router also features a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Ethernet switch to connect four PCs directly, or you can connect more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need.

    The Virtual Private Network (VPN) capability creates encrypted "tunnels" through the Internet, allowing up to 30 remote office or traveling users to securely connect into your office network from off-site. Users connecting through a VPN tunnel are attached to your company's network -- with secure access to files, e-mail, and your intranet -- just as if they were in the building. You can also use the VPN capability to allow users on your small office network to securely connect out to a corporate network.
    The Cisco SB RV042 10/100 4-Port VPN Router can serve as a DHCP Server, and has a powerful SPI firewall to protect your PCs against intruders and most known Internet attacks. It can be configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet, and has IP address filtering so you can specify exactly who has access to your network. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.
    As the heart of your small office network, the connection-redundant Cisco SB RV042 10/100 4-Port VPN Router gives you the connection reliability your business needs.

    I bought from E-bay 50-60 euro , refurbished but it was upgrade the firmware and tested , an excellent choice for cheap solution regarding Load Balancing (2 wans(2 adsl lines) or you can use one wan and other as DMZ port ) also provides strong vpn capabilities.
