This is as close as you can get to comparing apples and oranges as you can get.
yes both are technically routers but that is about all they have in common.
The linksys has wireless and voice over ip phone ports. The netgear is a full blown stateful firewall with intrusion detection along with support of VPN.
You will have to pick which features you are most likely to use.
I really need your advice. I have a Linksys WRTP54G and a Netgear ProSafe VPN Firewall FVS318 routers. I want to get rid of one of them but I'd like to know which one is the best to keep.
I appreciate your help.
