Re: [PLUG] Business FiOS and routers

I know this is completely not what you asked for, but check out Juniper 
Netscreen SSG series.  They run between $500-700 and include a whole lot 
of features including VPN/IPSec, anti-virus, anti-phishing/spyware, 
anti-spam, DoS mitigation, and Intrution Protection (IPS) at the 
firewall level.
