This would make a great paperweight.
 
Warning: Never, ever, ever buy this item or recommend it to a client. If you do buy it, don't buy it from Amazon, it will be harder to return it.I am an IT consultant and I want to start off by saying that I really like the Sonicwall products that I have worked with before (wired firewall/routers). This is the reason, in fact, that I recommended this product to a client when they said that they wanted a secure Wi-Fi solution for the Tablet PC's they were buying for their office.

If you're setting up a Mac network, look elsewhere
 
There's something SonicWALL doesn't tell you in their product literature, and that's that this router segregates wireless and wired traffic into two different MAC interfaces with two different subnets. This is all well and good for a handful of security reasons, but if you expect to use zeroconf/Rendezvous/Bonjour/NetBIOS to share printers amongst both wired and wireless clients, you will not be able to, as there is no way to place the LAN and WLAN on the same subnet. Multicasting will work amon...

Hangs/overheats
 
I replaced my old Sonicwall SOHO/10 firewall with the TZ 170 in December of 2004. I used it for 3 years. The most annoying aspect of this unit is that it would just hang and require a power cycle. Early on this happened about once every other month and towards the end it was happening monthly. The unit ran very hot and seemed to require some time to cool down before it would recover. Even then, sometimes it took multiple power cycles to have the unit start.

Bad "consultants" and their bad reviews
 
All I can say is that if one simply reads and understands what and how this firewall is meant to be used then most of the bad reviews here are based on misunderstandings.The wireless aspect of the firewall is intended to be used for guest access to the internet and of course you don't want guest access to the corporate or office LAN. This basically replaces the use of *another* upstream firewall that the Sonicwall would feed into as would another access point for wireless devices. Wh...
