My spin: Connecting remotely to your computer is important and being able to easily share Internet connectivity is also critical for any growing business. Linksys has a solution in their latest 8 port VPN router, that you should consider.
Linksys(R), a division of Cisco Systems Inc., the leading provider of broadband, wireless and networking hardware for the consumer and SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) markets, today announced the immediate availability of its new 10/100 8-Port VPN Router (RV082). An advanced Internet-sharing network solution, the RV082 has been especially designed to meet the needs of today’s small businesses.
Situated at the heart of a small office network, the connection-redundant 10/100 8-port VPN router lets multiple office computers share an Internet connection, like any router. However, the added-value of the RV802 router lies in its unique dual Internet ports which allow the user to connect a second Internet line as a backup, insuring permanent Internet connection.
