I am looking for a site-2-site VPN solution for small business with three sites (~15 users per site), currently on DSL with Netopia ADSL routers and using WAP on internal network. Different internal subnets. Looking for an appliance that does secure VPN in the cost range less than $300 per unit. I am aware there are Linksys & Netgear products in this price range and I am looking for recommendations on a product you may have used and found reliable. Also, for feedback on Cisco 871...Thank You!

My first recommendation for a good SBS solution would be SonicWall. they are solid devices with a simple WebUI for configuration. The TZ 170 would be great for you. here is the specs on those devices

But it looks like it is a little out of your price range.

I hear Drayteks are quite good for ADSL and IPSEC VPNs, but havent had a lot of play with them.

Probably out of your range is Check Point VPN-1 Edge device:

Or Junipers SSG 5/20

As I said, both may be a bit pricey, but they are from 2 of the top security vendors and will give a real good level of features, security and longevity.

I would check out the netscreen 5 GT which should suffice for your needs, and can be had off ebay OEM new units for < $150 each.

Add in another $100 for a year support for units gotten through grey channels and you are still under your limit.


I hope this helps !

Thanks, lots of good suggestions. However, since my client is price constrained, I am going to go with the NetScreen 5GT and I may need your help in setting it up PaperTiger :D
