We currently have a WatchGuard Firebox 700 and the fan is failing - no replacement fan available. Our needs are as follows: Incoming pptp passthrough for Windows vpn, incmoing and outgoing e-mail and web traffic - we have about 35 users on the lan that access the web and e-mail. What if any argument would be made to purchase the expensive WatchGuard firewall over the Netgear? Does the Watchguard have any significant security features over the Netgear? What about speed?
BTW - I have read a buch of the existing postings on this subject and appreciate the good information. I was unable to find this specific information in any other posting. TIA
