Router that will throttle bandwidth and report bandwidth usage per connection

Hi experts, i am looking for a router that can support over 5000 connections and provide

DHCP
Throttle or cap max bandwidth to connected devices
Provide real time reporting on connections and bandwidth usage per connected devices and a whole
Webpage redirect
Walled garden type were users cant see each other
content management

I have been looking at Nomadix but they dont have reporting, i would have to use MRTG, i would like to have all of these features in one box appliance if possible.  Just want to see what the experts are using.

Thanks

Dear,

i would suggest you look @ complete solution in one box,
Antivirus/Anti spyware, RBL, IPS, IPSEC VPN, SSL VPN & Contect Filtering..... and if you buy NSA series you will get free license to view point.... View point give you full reporting.

i am using Sonicwall and very happy with the performance + support is avalible on net, the firewall cost will not be very expensive or very cheap, in the middle.

website : www.sonicwall.com
live demo: http://livedemo.sonicwall.com/livedemo.html     

dont forget to buy Total Secure version if you buy Sonicwall.

Will that allow me to throttle down the bandwidth per client? I actually looked at sonicwall but wasn't sure it would do any bandwidth shaping.

Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

Josh Coen and Jason Langer have prepared the latest edition of VCP study guide. Both authors have been working in the IT field for more than a decade, and both hold VMware certifications. This 163-page guide covers all 10 of the exam blueprint sections.

Dear,

could you please let me know how many users and servers you have? and what throughput you are looking on WAN?

kabrutusAuthor Commented:
No servers, mainly internet usage.  I just want to be able to provide a report of how much bandwidth was used.  I would also like to monitor the usage realtime so i can see if someone is abusing the internet.  I would also like to provide bandwidth/traffic shaping so that someone in the corner of the office cant try to download a movie and suck up everyones bandwidth.  Maybe its not a router I'm looking for... maybe its a server i can add to the network... Just havent found a solution yet.

Most Sonicwalls use the same Advanced OS. You do have to purchase individually, licenses for specific tasks, like content filtering, application monitoring, and QoS settings. I use a TZ210 and it is quite a capable device for a medium size company- 200+ Users. As stated earlier, for that many users..2000+ The E-NSA series is Sonicwalls flagship series. Both the E-NSA and NSA models support Unlimited Nodes and offer Deep Packet Inspection. For more info on each.

Dear,

if you busy Total Secure Version you will get almost all security secrives license,,,, for more connections and better throughput you should go with NSA series or E series..

i am having NSA 3500 and E5500, both are good, in my case i was looking for above 1G throuput so i go with E series... you have to make you requirment then select suitable model.

Thank you for all your input.  I have also been looking at the open source project PFSense.  I know most people shy away from open source when working in a corporate environment.  I am only setting up temporary network solutions not permeant.  Have you guys had any experience using PF Sense?
