Hello Experts - I'm looking for recommendations for a wireless router/firewall that has a few key features.  I need an integrated landing page where users would need to agree to the terms before connecting, client isolation, no administrative access to the console over the wireless portion of the network, decent content filtering, and some basic AV/malware protection.  I've checked the Sonic Wall TZ 215 which looks good but costs too much...I'm hoping to spend maybe half that.  Any suggestions?

Are you using the same model TZ 215 or something cheaper?

Sounds like you're desiring something like a decent router with DD-WRT on it. In terms of Sonicwalls, have you looked at maybe the TZ-105? That may do the trick for you.

I have Sonicwall TZ105 and TZ215 for larger sites.

Main difference is the VPN features. The processors are different. The 215 does failover better
The more you pay the more VLANs you get.
The 215 does better authentication for terminal server and citrix

There may also be a difference in IPv6 support.

Here is the datasheet:
