    I think I need to replace my befw11s4 and I'd like to go with another
    manufacturer.

    I need the 4 ports and wirless and it MUST support VPN (about a year ago, that
    was asking a lot from many manufacturers). MAC filtering is a strong
    requirement, but I may do without if the price is right.

    I also don't want to waste my time with G as it's just not worth it. I'll go A
    if and when I dump B.

  2. What level of support of VPN do you require and what flavor?

    Based on my experience, your BEFW11S4 is perfectly capable and willing to
    connect a PPTP client on the LAN side to a PPTP server on the WAN side, and,
    if you set up forwarding of port 1723, I'm pretty sure that it will connect
    a PPTP client coming in from the WAN side to a PPTP server on the LAN side.

    On the BEFW11S4 Advanced/Filters configuration there are both PPTP and IPsec
    passthrough options, so I assume that it will do a similar thing for IPsec
    at least in one direction or the other.

    If you want the router itself to be the VPN endpoint, you're right --- the
    BEFW11S4 is not up to the task.

    Draytek do wireless routers with all these features, including support
    for VPN as a server as well as pass-through. The 2600W is the
    802.11b/4-port model
