Yes, Sonicwall is competitive. Just ensure that you negotiate prices with 3 Year service subscription terms.

Default Re: Best Corporate Firewall?

I need a Firewall with Wifi at my home, so that I can access my office network over Wifi. However, I only have spare Sonicwall TZ105 and SOHO lying around the office, which don't have Wifi ability. Yes, I can connect a wifi router to it. But every wifi router I find in the local market have only routing mode and not bridging mode. I remember seeing wifi routers with bridge+route mode even a decade ago. But I don't see them at all these days.

Usually, a typical Wifi router has two networks, a WAN and a LAN. Since I am connecting the Wifi router to my Sonicwall firewall, the WAN is already a LAN. I don't need another LAN. So I want Wifi router to be setup as a bridge, that means a single LAN.

Just to be clear, I am not trying to connect two wifi routers in bridge mode. Instead, I am trying to create a wireless bridge using a single wifi router. I know I can overwrite the router firmware with DD-WRT and get the bridge mode. But I am keeping that as last resort.

Are there any wifi routers available in India with bridge mode?

Oh, I found the solution. The bridge mode is same as AP or Access Point Mode. I just need to buy a wifi router with AP mode. Then I have quite a bit of choice.
