Didn't meet even my limited expectations.
Eight port router, seemingly the only affordable one. DIed in less than 6 months.
The firmware has some serious problems, I need to pull the plug almost daily after it freezes. Doesn't support jumbo-packets in those rare moments it isn't frozen.
Hopefully a firmware upgrade will make it usable someday.
I have always had good experience in the past with Netgear products, but my experience with the FVS318G is very disappointing.
I do recommend Netgear WNR3500 router.

    Works surprisingly great

    This is a reliable device. Very solid construction. It has a quick setup also.
    It doesn't drop VPN connections.
    Unfortunately it has no jumbo frame support, decent feature set for home or basic small business use.
    I replaced my router many times until I got this one.
    The Netgear configuration manager webpage seems to be very useful.
    The FVS318G reminds me of the quality blue-box Netgear products from a decade ago.
    Great router!
