Serious Firewall with DSL-Bonding

by Roo Dee on 8/31/2006

I purchased the SGS 360 for one main reason: To bundle two external connections like DSL or cable. In my area, the fastest I could get was DSL with U:3Mbit/D:368kbit. The next faster link was T1 for 475US$ a month. Now I have 2 x DSL with twice the speed and alomst T1 upload for a fraction of the price. Even if the service in my area improves, the SGS 360 can handle external connections up to a total of 60Mbit/s. It is not limited to DSL, it can be cable, DSL, T1, almost anything. It comes with a backup modem port, which is more useful for companies in desaster-scenarios. The firewall comes with manuals on DVD that go from easy tasks to network admin tasks. The simple setup for the novice home user is explained in a video tutorial that really gets you from unpacking to establishing service. The optional wireless insert can be purchased to establish Wireless-b/g connections. However, I used my existing router/firewall with wireless, and just plain unconfigured the connection portion of it. The first impression is great. The SGS 360 improved the speed on a single line by about 10 percent. On both lines it performs so much more stable than my old firewall on one line, it allows much more outbound connections. The port-forwarding is a little more complicated to setup, but allows to bend outside ports to different inside ports, a feature my old firewall did not have. The SGS360 offers more features such as VPN connectivity and Anti-Virus Policy enforcement and site blocking, but that is probably more for small businesses. The SGS360 comes with 90 days free live customer support from Symantec. Any questions, call them. Overall, I got to 75% of T1 upload speed for a fraction of the price. The device will not be obsolete when the DSL/cable speeds increase. I give it 5 out of 5 ! Although still a little pricey, it was well worth the money as it makes up for it in savings! And the price at buy.com beat everyone at streetprices and pricewatch. Once again!
