I am looking for a relatively cheaper alternative to the Sonicwall TZ series firewall/wireless router device. The main features I am looking for are: 1. Wireless router capability on a separate interfaces/subnet. Multi-interface: WAN, LAN and WLAN. 2. Hardware firewall appliance

Any suggestions?

  • There looks to be 3 models in the TZ series, all at different price levels. Which one exactly are you looking for a cheaper alternative to? – joeqwerty Jul 12 '11 at 16:41

If you're at all comfortable with Linux I'd recommend looking into utilizing of the many packages out there for this. I'm personally fond of PFSense.

If you've got an aging PC you can easily turn that into a pretty powerful router/firewall solution for very minimal costs.
