I have been doing some research and came across the sonic wall pro 3060
gateway. I'm interested in building a network where I will provide wireless internet support for apartment complexes in a college town.
the sonic wall pro 3060 seems like a very good choice for a gateway (given it virus scanning and user manangment abilities). when looking at other gateways/routers, i don't see as many of the virus and spyware
can someone comment on a "bare bones" solution that can be use in an apartment complex.
important features would be1) user access control 2) bandwidth control 3) web based control 3( protection from virus etc...
also, i'm having a hard time understanding the difference between the virus and "stateful packet inspection" products that i'm seeing. what are the pro's and con's of the two technologies?
