I think gunda's looking for recommendations for a hardware firewall for his network. If so then it depends on the size of your network, the sensitivity of your data and the amount you want to spend. If you're a Cisco user you might start by looking at the Cisco PIX range

Like TheBishop said, gunda is looking for a firewall. If you think harware firewall like Cisco pix could cost you more, i will recommend some ready made firewalls which could run on a x86 pc at no cost.

1. IPCOP (I use this and it's brilliant.)
2. Monowall ( heard it's works great and support more NICs)
3. pfsense (same as above but with more functionalities, I'm keeping an eye on this project for the final release.
it could be the *daddy* of all.)

All of these require just basic knowledge about firewalls to get your network up and running.

If your business budget is in good shape then i would recommend you getting a cisco pix. I can't wait to ever get my hands on one to play with.
