Product Overview

Insight Instant VPN Router

NETGEAR has recognised the needs of modern businesses and summarised them in the NETGEAR® Insight™ Instant VPN Router. This business-class router with Instant VPN technology is the world’s easiest and most user friendly way to remotely connect to your office as if you were there and never left. It has never been this easy to connect multiple offices together as if they were on one and the same network and shared all the same resources.

Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI)

In addition to being a high performance router for small to medium-size businesses, it also offers a Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall supporting over a hundred rules to keep the bad guys out and your business safe.


The VPN connections are encrypted to offer a secure link between your laptop and your office whether you’re on the road, at a coffee shop, or in another country. The same is true for site-to-site connections, when you decide to connect your home, office, or several other locations that need tobe interconnected.

Easy to Manage

Using NETGEAR Insight, you have visibility and access to all features from routing to VPN setup, configuration, management and monitoring all from a single pane of glass, on your phone or laptop.

Easy and Secure with Insight

The NETGEAR Insight Instant VPN router provides both secure yet easy site-to-site tunnels and secure access for remote clients. Never before has connecting to your office been as easy as “tap and go”. Once you connect and onboard your Instant VPN router using either the Insight app or the web portal, you are able to use the Insight mobile app or the laptop client to quickly, easily and securely connect to your office from anywhere in the world and continue working as if you were in the office with full access to all the resources and assets that you have in your office.

Intelligent Router

Including all the routing and network segmentation features that a small business router must have, NETGEAR Insight Instant VPN router will be the backbone of any modern small business. Gigabit LAN/WAN ports keep your data moving at top speed. With Network Address Translation (NAT) routing and classical routing, all the users in your office can access your broadband connection at the same time. VLAN and inter-VLAN routing are just a few examples of resourcefulness of Insight Instant VPN Router.


You can start with one or two Instant VPN routers and as your business grows and your needs increase, you can add more routers to your VPN groups (up to 3 Instant VPN routers) to have a complete meshed network between 3 locations. A VPN group consisting of a single Instant VPN router can handle up to 10 remote users and each additional Instant VPN router can offer up to 10 additional remote users.

Business Grade

The rugged metal unit houses advanced high-quality electronics, and is backed by the industry’s best-in-class 5-Year Hardware Warranty, 90 Day Free Technical Support and 5 Year Next Business Day Replacement.


NETGEAR provides Professional Configuration and Setup Support to assist initial setup if needed, and OnCall 24x7 Support for ongoing technical consultation.
