>would this be a better option than pix 506e
The 506e has been end-of-lifed and not been for sale new for over  year now. The ASA is the replacement product.
If you are getting closer to the 50 user mark, I would suggest going for the ASA 5510
You can get from CDW and select the smartnet maintenance at the same time

HI,

The 5505 is enough for you I think it is cheeper than 5510, how much bandwith do you want to firewalled?

thanks ikalmar, it is just 1.5mb with 10-15 computers and that is good enough I think.
