The Bottom Line The BEFSX41 is an affordable solution for those who need secure access to their home or office network via the Internet. It's hard to go wrong with the EtherFast router, but if you do, you'll wish you had a longer warranty. The WRV54G puts the cart before the horse, providing lots of VPN tunnels without covering fundamental wireless-security bases.
