My goal is to distribute a 20mb internet connection to my users as cost effectively as possible.
I have a Netgear Prosafe FSV318 VPN Firewall that works great on our current 5mb connection but when I try to use this firewall our new20mb circuit I only get 8-9mbps down and 5mbps up. I have tested the circuit with my laptop and confirmed 20/20 service. I dont think the Netgear will handle anything over 10mb?
My question is, taking cost into consideration, what VPN Firewall will be able to handle a 20mb circuit? I will have roughly 40 users hitting this circuit daily.
My backbone switch is a Cisco 45003 w/Advanced IP IOS. Wondering if I could land the circuit here but not sure how to get all the routing and security in place for remote connections and such?
*EDIT* I have done some research and I am looking at upgrading to a Netgear FVS338 VPN Firewall. It has 60mb Wan to Lan Thoughput. Cost is $300. Is this a viable solution or is there a better firewall out there for $300
