N300 Wireless VPN Router

TEW-659BRV (Version v1.0R)

  • Define up to 80 Virtual Private Network tunnels
  • IPSec, L2TP, and PPTP VPN pass-through support
  • 300Mbps Wireless N
  • One-touch WPS wireless connection

The TEW-659BRV (Version v1.0R) has been discontinued.  For a list of discontinued products, click here.

The N300 Wireless VPN Router, model TEW-659BRV, provides the ability to define up to 80 Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnels*, all while generating a high speed wireless network. IPSec, L2TP, and PPTP VPN pass-through sessions are supported and a configurable firewall ensures the highest level of security.

This router provides powerful 300Mbps wireless connectivity and a WPS button on the front of the router takes that hassle out of connecting to it. Four Fast Ethernet ports on the back of the router help extend a wired network. Advanced Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and Network Address Translation (NAT) encryption protects your digital network. Advanced features include GRE tunneling, advanced Quality of Service (QoS) controls, Domain filtering, packet filtering, and more.
