Nice idea behind combo... but
This review is from: WatchGuard WG021533 XTM 21-W Wireless VPN Firewall
Pros: Same interface as the whole WG line, Easy for novices to navigate. Rules easy to set up if you know your way around a firewall (except web interface needs work and is slow) Works great when it works. Wireless can be configured for Guests and Internal Lan (if you must)
Cons: Purchased this for a 10 user company. Email is behind the firewall using NAT and Web Access for email is also enabled. Thats it. Company website is located at a hosting facility. This device will lock up once a week. Can not even use the System Manager Client to log in and reboot. Someone has to be onsite to power off and back on. After two weeks of Watchguards SLOW technical support (24 hrs to respond to each update to the ticket) support says some of there other users configure the device to reboot itself every night. That right there tell you there is a known problem. I have used many Watchguard products and have not had anything bad to say about the older full rack sized products or there current 5 series, but their 2 and 3 series products will not go into any more of my clients sites.
