where to obtain the latest TZ170 firmware update

I went to the MySonicwall site but it only offers me "free" downloads, after signing in.
What does it take o get the latest firmware update for a TZ170?
Do I need to input it's serial number somewhere?
I want to enable failover so I think I have to go to at least version 2.0, should I just get the latest and greatest instead?
Is there anywhere else to pbtain the update?
Also, many online manuals state the TZ170Sp does "failover" since it has a built in modem.
Does this mean the TZ170 does not support "failover" or does it now handle that via the OS upgrade?

thanks very much,

You'll have to register but it's free.

I was there and when I go to 'Download' and the "Firmware" subcategory it only offers me up generic junk like a vpn client.
Where's the actual firmware update file found?

I'm sorry, someone put caffeinated coffee in the decaf pot today!

Ok 97, your site is much more straightforward that SW's.
So the .sig file is the actual update?


Yes, but I would suggest calling SonicWall directly at +1 888.777.1476 (assuming ur in the US) to verify the latest version, fixes, install instructions, etc...
