Sonicwall Appliance upgrade suggestions

I will do my best to describe the layout but I'm not a firewall or vpn guy.

We have a remote location that uses a Sonicwall Tele3 SP device with one site to site connection which connects them to use. I believe it uses pppoe with Nat for the connection. The device only has 10 vpn connections of which 7 are used by staff computers to get to the internet and our servers.

I'm looking for a solution that will give us 25 connections, 1 site-to-site, and allow for 2 separate network segments/subnets. One subnet for staff and one for the public for internet connectivity. It would be better if it were all in one device but I don't care as long as it works.

I have been looking a  DLink wan device for public internet access. I have also looked at other sonicwall devices and adding a Linksys wireless N access point.

Is this even possible?

The new enterprise Sonicwall software probably has all of your options built in. I use several of them. You can get the 25 VPN connections, multiple network segments / vlan, WiFi with public access gateway controls (and VPN through the WiFi), Multiple SSIDs, secondary Internet failover/load balancing, etc.  

Try something like the TZ170. (you may even be eligible for a upgrade from the Tele3) Thats what I did for one client. Bought the TZ170 enterprise upgrade versoin, bought a used Sonicwall SOHO (on ebay) and then transfered the SOHO to the upgrade license for the TZ170 and threw out the SOHO.

Wow, Here I thought I was way of track and I was looking at the TZ170 Model. The really unfortunate part is there website isn't so good for getting info.

Call or email their pre-sales support, and confirm everything you want to do with the router. Their people are pretty good. (no, I don't work for them, I just happen to use a couple of their routers)

I think I'm going to end up using a 3COM X5 after having done more research. Sonic wall is good but I think the X5 is more what I was looking for. Thanks for the advice Dannlh.

Since no one else posted anything you get my points... The solution was accurate but I wasn't sure what I was looking for. The 3com X5 seems to do everthing I need and more.
