Hello,

I am just looking for recommendations for routers for this amount of users. We have a few different brands of routers we use for our clients but I am looking to explore other options. I am looking for a firewall that can nicely support 300-400 users and do basic things inbound/outbound firewalling bandwidth limiting and IPS. It is going to be used to host WiFi. I am looking for something that is cost effective and reliable. I know there are a lot of options but I am looking for my silver bullet with not tons of overhead and expensive maintenance plan. We currently a PC with open source software doing this.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

The Juniper SRX. Model depends on bandwidth and the number of concurrent sessions, which will depend on the internet access policy for the users. The SRX240 is very strong and can also manage four access points.

The Fortigate is also strong - perhaps FG60 for this.

I second the Juniper SRX Line. Very good firewalls! I have two SRX650 clusters that host thousands of users.
