    Let me clarify; it needs to be the best firewall I can get for $500. It's for business use.

    EDIT: Though $350 of weed is tempting, I think my boss would notice that I replaced a D-Link firewall with a Linksys firewall.

    Should be able to get a good used cisco for that price, and i have to say that or they will cancel my certification & press my self destruct button.

    If you have to buy new and not on ebay then buy a cheap pc & linuxarise.

    I spent about $350 on a Cisco PIX 501 and would do so again. It's been a great firewall. The only thing I'd do differently is spend a little more for a 50 user licence instead of the 10 user license unit I got, though it's not really a problem.

    Fucking A. The only reason my boss asked me to find one was so he could explain to the CEO why it's better to keep the D-Link routers we have. God damn it.

    The pieces of junk dont even reboot without ripping out the power lead.

    Heh. My boss is a tech guy himself; in fact, pretty much everybody along my particular corporate food chain is tech-savvy. They just don't want to spend any money if they can avoid it.
