We use sonicwalls and have been pretty happy with them. They're easy to configure and use and powerful enough for enterprise security.They have a model with integrated WI-FI and VPN for wireless users:

Depending on the users you're looking at $500+

Are you looking for a router which supports a T1 line as well as functions as a wireless access point and also provides firewall services?

There is no router as such. Your best bet would be to buy a cisco 1700 series on ebay for about $300 and then buy another cisco 350 access point for another $350.

Your 1700 router would function as a good firewall and would keep intruders out.

You are free to leave any recommendation but mrpez1's answer is not accurate. The author was looking for a router supporting the following:

- T1 interface
- Wireless
- VPN funcationality

The Sonicwall at http://www.sonicwall.com/products/sohotzw.html suggested by mrpez only supports the last two while my recommendation supports all three.

Hi billwharton,

That's why you can object :-)

After looking closer at  Sonic's range I can see they don't have any routers. I must be in assumption mode today ....

Your solution would work, but I'm sure we could argue the toss over whether the 1700 should be used as a firewall, rather than mixing your 1700 router with mrpez1 wireless firewall as a stronger solution.


Regardless,

I will leave the following recommendation for this question in the Cleanup topic area:

As long as there are objection goin on... My answer assumed that he already had a CPE router. Why would Bill's answer be any more correct than mine? Nowhere has the author said he was looking for a T1 interface and even had he, Billwharton didn't provide such a router. He provided a solution identical to mine only he told him to buy a t1 router.
