Default I need a GOOD firewall appliance

I am currently using a Sonicwall security appliance and am not very happy with it. What do you use and/or recommend? Something not to expensive as this is for a small business of less than 100 users.

There are a lot of free linux firewalls out there that are acutally really good and are not too hard to use with their web based interface. If you go to sourceforge.org you will find plenty.

Got an old/low powered/redundant pc?

Then what you want is SMOOTHWALL (a linux based firewall/network gateway).

My college is using a "Pix" firewall, supposedly one of the best (and most expensive >.<).

I felt like I needed to add +1 to my post roster...
