Firewall / router needed

I am looking for a device that can do the following (preferably a firewall). I have dual WANs (2 cable modems) for increased bandwidth capacity for internal company use and I also have a WAN connection (DSL) that needs to route only to an FTP server in the DMZ.  Does anyone know of a device capable of allowing this?  I have researched Sonicwall but they say they can't do this because when you load balance WANs...you have to load balance all of them.  I just want to load balance the 2 cable modems...not DSL.  DSL is dedicated only to the DMZ.  Sonicwall mentioned that I need to wait for the next release of their firmware (v. 5.6).  Any ideas?  thanks!

Juniper SRX. Please visit Juniper.net and look for srx 210 and up.

Or the Juniper SSG range (but I agree with bsihn417, if you get juniper go for the SRX).

Also look at Check Point UTM devices

Both Juniper and CP seem to have cornered the market for decent enterprise state firewalls for SOHO orgs.

Just curious...how do the Juniper devices stack up against the Watchguards, Sonicwalls, and Cisco's out there?  Thanks for the feedback!

Its hard to compare them cos wach vendor uses their own criteria to use for the comparisons it displays.

Over all tho, all those vendors are quite good and ts down to the specific situation you want to deploy them in as well as your own personal preference.

I like juniper cos they are fairly straightforward and feature rich.  They have a great CLI as well as a decent GUI. Plenty of config info, suggestions etc out there too.

Not used a WG in a couple fo years and the ones we had then were awful with a GUI that wasnt laid out in a meaningful design etc but this may have changed by now.

In general, I think that the junipers are good value for money. SSG and SRX, and cater for almost all of a compnay's require,emnts in a security product.  For performance, they are slightly better in comparison to WG and cisco, when you compare similar devices.

But I will leave a cisco or WG guru to comment on them as I don't know enough to confirm with conviction.
