      In this case i will use a SonicWall TZ170/TZ180 with a SonicOS Enhaced.

      This device is easy to install and it’s always up to date with the latest internet threads.

      Some Specs
      -Gateway antivirus
      -Client Antivirus
      -Content Filtering
      -Email Filtering and RBL

      No, i’m not working at SonicWall, just happen that we’ve alot of costumers with a SonicWall devices and they’re satisfied

          you should be able to get a box easily for under 1K.

          The sonicwall is easy to use with web based management, and very stable. The support was always decent when I had one. We moved away from it a few years ago (not my choice) and as the admin, I have been the one paying the price ever since. 🙁

          Stay away from the department store routers unless your doing nothing but allowing your users to access the internet.

      Endian Firewall
      Smoothwall
