You could try Zyxel USG 100 which has WAN failover and also HA - High Availability. Depends on your budget.

I reviewed the Sonica wall tz215 from the below link. But the only problem for me is, it doesn't have HA - High Availability. Should that device go down, so does both your internet connections. Other than that, it has all the necessary features to cater for your business needs.

Having a secondary connection is all about covering point of failure should your primary connection go down. So I think you should be looking at covering the point of failure regarding your router/firewalls as-well.

I would go with sonic wall. the TZ 215 is easy to configure a fail over take mind that the internet would go down for about a minute but then the 2nd line would come up.

depending on where you buy the sonicwall it comes with vpn licence's right from out of the box that's always a bonus.

I've setup several sonicwalls and they are definitely very easy to setup for failover internet.

You just connect your two cables, enable load balancing / failover, then setup the probing and that's it.

You can set it up so all traffic goes over Link A and Link B is strictly used if Link A is down, or you can use Link A and B together and load balance the traffic. Takes about 5 minutes to setup.
