The Nexland Pro100 web configuration tool pretty much comes with every configuration tool you would expect from a good router. Filters, NAT configuration (with some common predefined ports as well), DMZ options, and even built in support for TZO dynamic DNS setups (and free 30 day trial). I tested it out and it works quite well (xtremetek.nexland.net).

The web console is fast and fairly easy to understand. If you don't understand what's going on here, Nexland provides a very well put together and easy to understand manual.

Asethetically, the Pro100 is a very nice unit to look at. The only complaint I have in this department is the open serial connection the front of the unit. Not a big deal, just looks kind of funny sitting there. Also, the LED's are kind of hard to see from a distance because they are on the top of the unit rather than the front, but that's not a huge deal.

All aspects considered, the Nexland Pro100 is a great router. But is it worth the $209 it will cost you? Usually, I would say, "No". However, what pushes the Nexland over the edge for me is the included CAT5 cable, the VPN support, and the very fast and easy to use admin console along with the extra features (like the built in TZO support).

After using the Pro100 for a month now, I have not had this unit even hiccup once. It is very obvious that Nexland takes pride in both their products looks, stability and performance which is very refreshing to say the least. The Pro100 is very deserving of our top honor...
