I'm using a Netgear 318FVS, and it has worked flawlessly for me since I
got it. I had no need for wireless connections, but I did need
something that would handle PPPOE (so I could VPN into my employer's
company network) and would have enough ports to handle all of the CAT5
connections I have (or will) put in inside my house. As far as tweaking
settings is concerned, I did only the most basic things (passwords,
setting valid IP ranges, etc.) so far.
I would still recommend it, though.
