Product recommendation for upgrading Netopia R910

We have  a pair of R910's connecting two sites as well as allowing mobile users to get onto corp network by PPTP for several years. I am generally happy with them. But now I am seeing its limitations: only 16 connection profiles max and in the firewall, only 16 max input filters and 16 max output filters. So looking into upgrading.

It seems Netopia does not offer a higher level product in this line. I don't like the Sonicwall's appliances as they don't have firewall built-in. Any recommendations? I need Ethernet Wan port. Firewall and service export and VPN endpoint all in one. Does not have to be modular. I don't want IPsec for mobile users as it is a royal pain to set them up.

Thanks.

I would recommend Cisco ASA5500 series. Using SSL VPN is much simpler to setup for end users, but Cisco's IPSEC client is also simple to install and setup for end users, and much much more secure than PPTP will ever be.
Depending on the size of your user population, the following are general guidelines for sizing:
ASA 5505 - 0-25 end users
ASA 5510 - 25 - 150 end users
ASA 5520 - 150-1000 end users
It also depends on how many simultaneous VPN users you need to support.
