As a huge fan of the RV320 router (been using it for over 6 months now), i was wondering if anyone has any experience with the Firewall features like SPI and DOS. Does any of these really improve security and/or necessary? has anyone tested throughput with and without these features? Ive been noticing better performance on the router when both functions are disabled.
Either you didnt understand my question or something else is missing here but I didnt ask if the router has these features, since i already know that. I asked if it would hit performance: "Does any of these really improve security and/or necessary? has anyone tested throughput with and without these features? Ive been noticing better performance on the router when both functions are disabled."
SPI and DoS protection do improve security and also impact performance. Stateful Packet Inspection usually causes the processor to work the hardest, thus impacting throughput. Wikipedia has some good simple information about Stateful Packet Inspection and Denial of Service attacks. It is up to you to decide whether or not these features are useful in your case. If you are running a web server of any kind I would recommend that you at least enable DoS prevention.
